The File Manager allows you to view, manage, edit and create files and folders for your website.
The website editors within the file manager are basic text and visual editors. For those who are new to website development we recommend starting your website through the Website Wizard option instead, as this is a guided editor intended for the novice user. The Editors within the file manager are not compatible with the website wizard, so we suggest you only use one or the other.
To access the file manager to view, access and create your website files, please log into your bravenet.com account and follow these steps:
Web Hosting tab -> Manage Websites -> click on website address link -> File Manager
Here you will be able to upload existing files, as well as create new folders and files. Files and folders can be sorted in various ways to help you locate and organize them.
Note: The file manager is limited to displaying 200 files at a time. Folders are not included in this limit.
Editing Files through the Text Editor or Visual Editor
In some cases, you will want to access the Text Editor/Visual Editor directly without viewing a list of your files. This can be done via the following steps:
Web Hosting tab -> Manage Websites -> click on website address link -> Text/Visual Editor
Uploading Files through the File Manager
Web Hosting tab -> Manage Websites -> click on website address link -> Upload
This is ideal for small file uploads or minor updates. For large uploads we recommend using SFTP.
