  1. Login to cPanel.


 2. Under Files, click File Manager

 3. Select Web Root and Show Hidden Files, then click Go.

 4. Click to open the folder to which you'd like to upload files.

 5.Click Upload from the top toolbar

5. Click Browse (some web browsers will have Choose File instead).


7.Select the file on your computer that you wish to upload

8. Once the file has been selected, it will automatically upload. You may select additional files while uploads are in progress.

That's all.
