How to use Web disk configuration - WebDav?

The web drive (also known as Web Dav) is a direct deposit interface that allows you to access your website files as if they were a local drive on your computer.

Note: The same goal can be achieved using your FTP through Windows Explorer or Filezilla. See the corresponding article.

Connection instructions are as follows:

Log in to cPanel and click the disk icon on the web.

Under Main Web Disk Account section, click Configure Client Access.

Choose your operating system (the one you are using on your personal computer). Click Download Configuration Script.

On your computer, click Save, Open, and then click Run.

You can now see your web files on your computer.

The cool part is that you can now drag and drop files from your hard drive to your website.

The Vista connection instructions:

On the desktop, click Start, and then click My Computer.
Then click on Map network drive.
From this screen, click Connect to a website that you can use to store your documents and photos, and then click Next.
Click Choose a custom network location, and then click Next.
Enter the following information in the Internet or network address field:
Enter your Web Disk username and password when prompted.

Windows 7 connection instructions:

This is a reminder that cPanel cannot handle WebDisk on Windows 7. If you are running Windows 7, you will need to use third-party software like NetDrive, BitKinex, or WebDrive.

MacOS X connection instructions:

Under Go on the menu bar, select Connect to server.
For "server address", type: http://yourdomain:2077.
Click on the Connect button.
In the "WebDAV authentication" window, enter your username and password.
Click on OK
The icon for your WebDisk space will then appear on the desktop like any other disk or network drive. To open it, double-click on the icon.
The public_html folder will appear in your WebDisk space.
