Files migration

You need download files from old hosting to your PC (better in .zip archive), then you should upload archive to our hosting into folder /public_html (for cPanel your base public folder is /public_html. therefore file /home/userXXXX/public_html/index.php would be open in your browser at му URL).

Let's say that you have archive of your files and DB dump. You can upload them into our hosting by using cPanel file manager

When you open File manager you will see in left menu folders tree. At top of page you can see "Menu", where you need click to "Upload" to sent your archive to hosting.

That Menu allow you do other operation with your files and folders. You can enable dot files lisgtng (like .htaccess) in Settings menu item.

In left menu click to public_html. Then click on "Upload" button choose archive on your PC and click Submit.

When archive uploaded, select file and click Unpack

Archive now is unpacked and you can see your files, in this example this is WordPress site files . You need now wp-config.php — this is configuration file for WordPress. Please note to «Permissions» column, where you can see files permission. For files it should be – 644, for folders – 755. You can modify permission in related menu.

So, files was uploaded and now you can upload/import dump of your database.
