Creating new files



You can create files in any directory on your site by using the Create New File option in the File Manager, This option allows you to create a text, HTML or script file in the directory you are currently in.



1  To access the FILE MANAGER, click on the  icon above the words File Manager on the main screen of your cPanel interface.

2  Click on  the words Create New File.

3  Type the name of the new file in the blank field above the drop-box containing the words Text Document:



4  Click on the drop-box containing the words Text Document and select the type of file you wish to create:



5  Click on the box marked Create.


NOTE: If the file was created successfully, the following will appear (except filename will be the name of the file you have created and /home/directory will be the directory you have created the file in. File Type will be replaced with the type of file you have created):


Creation of filename (File Type) succeeded in/home/directory




Make sure to create the proper type of file for its contents. A file created with an improper file type may not work in the manner that you wish it to. For example, an HTML Document that is created as a Perl Script will not work, it needs to be created as an HTML Document.
