Set Up: cPanel File Manager: Editing Files
Editing an existing file through File Manager allows you to make immediate changes to your website without having to upload a new version of the file.
The Edit function is useful for small changes. However, if you need to make large alterations to a file, it might be easier to simply upload the new file and use the overwrite function to replace the existing file on the server.
- Navigate to the folder where the file is located.
- Click on the name of the file.
- Click on the Edit icon. This will open the Edit window.
- Click Edit. This will open a new window with the content of the file displayed.
- When ready, click Save Changes on the top toolbar.
The new changes will be saved and will take effect immediately.
