I am a website owner and this is my first time using cPanel.

The website has images and information on it that I would like to change. I have been looking on the file manager for some time now and have not be able to figure out how it works.

For example on every page there is an old logo I would like to update. I have figure out how to delete items and how to upload items in the file manager but I do not know how to position them on the webpages.

The HTML editor is available but I cannot find my website in the manager to be able to edit in the HTML editor.

If anyone could provide some help I would be very grateful.

Cheers,

Ciaran

You might want to look into finding a website that has tutorials for this sort of thing. Managing your website via cPanel makes things easier to do, but you will need to know how to manage your actual website. That's something not supported on these cPanel Support forums.

Under normal circumstances, your website, domain.com, is located here, in cPanel File Manager:
/yourusername/public_html/

If you uploaded an image called, logo.jpg to /yourusername/public_html/logo.jpg

You can open it in your browser by going to domain.com/logo.jpg

Hi
Infopro

I have been looking for tutorials for some time now and nothing covers it. Please can you help me understand why my domain.com is not available in the public_html area, or anywhere for that matter?

Thanks,

Ciaran

Well, thats a separate issue from moving/changing the logo on your website.

If the domain is not resolving to your account properly, you'll need to check your DNS settings. Your Hosting Provider has probably provided you with his nameservers to use on the server, those nameservers need to be added to your domain name, at your domain name registrar. (for example GoDaddy is a domain registrar)

Since you're new and unsure about this, your Hosting Provider would be the one to speak with. He can, he should, be able to explain how to point your domain, to his server, using his nameservers.

As for learning how to work with your website, without knowing how the website was made, any suggestions anyone makes on where to go for support, would be of no value to you. For example if you're running a Wordpress site and wanted to change the logo in the style, that task is a bit different than if you had a plain, 3 page HTML website.
