The cPanel File Manager has powerful features to manage your files. Let's check all of the features you can use in this web-based file manager.

You can even edit text based files like HTML, PHP and text files with the help of these menu items! No need to use web page editors for small changes.

3) Some web based script installations will require you to change file and folder permissions, which you can do with this button.
