The Legacy File Manager offers file manipulation options in an older web-based interface. Users already familiar with an older version of cPanel’s File Manager may find the Legacy File Manager more comfortable.
When an existing file is clicked from the list, a menu in the upper right-hand corner of the window appears, showing the options for file manipulation. (The options are specific to the type of file selected; as a result, not all options will appear for all files.)
