    That was very helpful. Thank you. Is it possible to reference files outside the public_html directory tree? E.g. For security measures to refer to a config file that contains MySql passwords.

    Something no one talks about is what content does the website read? If I upload sds.html, asdac.html and cvjv.jpg what will the website do with these? How do I direct it to read the files I upload? On my website there was a placeholder file named parking-page.shtml. Will the website read only files named parking-page.shtml? Or it will read anything I upload, if that is the case, what will happen with conflicting files?

    Thank you very much for the video. It is very helpful! Is it possible to upload files with filemanager in ASCII? And if it is, how does on do it or can you please make a video tutorial on how to do it? That would be very, very helpful. Thank you so much in advance!

    Great, but how to get access to the uploaded file on the website, to use it on the website?
    And if images & PDFs are uploaded to the file manager,
    does that then mean that it is not necessary to have them in the Media Library?

    Highly annoying the title reads = "CPanel Tutorial: How to Use File Manager to Upload Website Files" and he does not show how to do the index.html so where do you put it? The system is not going to know your index.html is in a new folder and won't look there. Thumbs down.

    Thank you very much! This is is very well done and I have learnt some very informative information here! You have made it easy to understand.

    But please tell me. I have noticed that when uploading files using filemanager, there is no option to upload the files in ASCII format. As l understand (if I am at all correct), transferring in ASCII format is used so that some of the data does not end up corrupted on the server after the initial upload because the files is transferred from a Windows computer to a Linux server, for example. So I would like to know what alternatives are there to getting the same results as uploading in ASCII format? Should I just upload the files in a zip folder and extract afterwards (would that work?) or are there any other alternatives to uploading in ASCII format in file manager?

    I am asking because what if the file you wish to upload, must be uploaded in ASCII format? Please advise.
    Thanks so much for your advice.

    My problem is I only have online file manager in my cpanel, the file manager you are using is showing demo Mode and when I use it, it doesn't upload my file. I don't know how to fix this. I would appreciate it if you show me another method to upload to cpanel

    ​ @HowToWebmaster Is there a way to expose a file publicly on your domain? For example, if the user went to could other apps publicly access this using CORS? Is there a way to do this with go daddy?
