Copying files

 

Overview

You can use the Copy File function to copy a file into a different directory than its current location. This is very useful is you need multiple copies of the same file in different locations. You can also copy files as a backup before changing them.

 

 

Steps

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 icon next to the file you wish to copy.

3  Next, click on Copy File on the right hand side of the screen:

 

 

4  A list of folder will appear on the left hand side of the screen.

5  Click on the name of the folder you wish to copy the file into.

 

NOTE: If the copy was successful an image similar to the following will appear on the right hand side of the screen:

 

 

 

Troubleshooting

 

Trying to copy a file into a folder which already contains that file may cause an error. Also, note that the list of folders begins with / , not your current folder.
