Connect to FTP via Webshell

  1. From your control panel, navigate to FTP/User Account > FTP User.
  2. Click the login icon within the File Manager section.

Using Webshell

At the top of the screen, there is a navigation/options menu:

Most of the options there are self explanatory, the ones which might not make sense straight away are explained below:

MKDIR: This will create a new folder in the current directory.
CHMOD: This allows you to change permissions of selected file/folders
ARCHIVE: This is used to create archives of folders – Note: this isn’t recommended, if you require an archive creating, contact support in the usual way.

On the main part of the screen, the left hand side is where all the files and folders are listed, this is how you navigate to find the file you’d like to edit, or the folder you’d like to upload/download a file to/from.

Once you’ve selected the file you’d like to work with, the options and information for that file will be shown on the right hand side. This example, we’re going to be editing a wp-config.php file.

We find and highlight it on the left hand side:

Then, on the right hand side, we hit “edit

This will open up a new window, showing the contents of the file. Once you’re done with that, press the “Save” option at the top of the window.

As you can see, there are other options you can use to download, rename or even delete a file.

Webshell is mostly for quick edits of files, as it isn’t designed for heavy use, uploading files is one at a time and generally not recommended. If you’re going to be heavily using FTP, I would strongly suggest configuring an FTP client.
