What is the process of uploading a website to cPanel X hosting? My site is being developed in php and I am utilizing phpMyAdmin for database management.


The process of uploading a website to a web server involves three steps. Firstly, you need to upload the files, followed by importing the database via phpmyadmin on the server. Prior to this, you will need to export the database to phpmyadmin on your local computer.

Finally, you will have to modify the parameters for connecting to the database in the site code. You will need to specify a different host, database name, username, and password.


On my hosting:

Go to the cPanel panel.
From the main page, go to the dispatcher files. Files must be uploaded to the root directory, in our case it is public_html.
Upload our archive with site files on the hosting via the "Submit" button.
After downloading our archive, it must be unpacked.

But you can always write to technical support and they will help you upload files to the hosting for free and within a couple of hours.

When uploading files to the server, it is better to use a third-party FTP client that is not available in the panel. The completely free Filezilla is fine. Advantages: simplicity and trouble-free operation, automation, support for all necessary protocols. Convenience also. The app itself is updated regularly.

I used the program you recommended. Indeed, it is very convenient, especially when uploading a large number of files. For example, - when installing Wordpress on a hosting not from the provider's services, or uploading a copy from the home directory.
About 20,000 files without a headache.


This is a quick guide on how to upload a website to web hosting. Here are the steps to follow:

1) Purchase web hosting, which usually comes with three parameters: host, login, and password. These details will be sent to you by the hosting provider, along with an email and login instructions.

2) Download an FTP client like FileZilla, which allows you to connect to the hosting server.

3) Enter the host, username, and password in the fields provided to connect to the server.

4) The left part of the program window shows the explorer and the contents of folders on your computer, while the right part shows the explorer and folder contents on the hosting server. Once you're connected, a folder with the name of your website (domain) will appear in the right window.

5) On the left side of the screen, open the folder containing the files you want to upload, and on the right side, go to the folder with the name of your site on the hosting side, for example, "mysite.com". Then go to the "www" folder.

6) Select the file you want to upload from the left side of the screen, right-click on it, and select "Upload to the server." Congratulations! Your site has been uploaded to the internet. You can now check how it looks in your browser.

Here are two important things to keep in mind:
1) The root folder of your website should be named "www," and it should contain your main site page, such as "index.html" or "index.php."
2) During subsequent uploads, make sure you are uploading files to the correct folder on the server.
