I know cpanel, but I'm a bit lost in DH's

Does DH’s panel provide a way to see which files have been uploaded to your server? I’m in the process of switching from hosting that utilized the cpanel and I used to check to make sure files were in the right place using the File Manager inside of cpanel. Is there something comparable here that I am just missing?


The easiest way is to use an FTP client. Firefox has an extension called “FireFTP” that does the job very nicely.

You can also “approximate” the functionality of the cPanel filemanager by using Dreamhost’s net2ftp application.

Just browse to http://webftp.dreamhost.com, enter your domain name for the ftp server, your username, and your password, and you will be good to go.


From your DH panel, go to “Users” --> “Manage Users”. You can then log into net2ftp

If you are using FireFox or Internet Explorer you can quickly check your files by logging into your FTP account with the browser, using ftp://ftp.yourdomain.com

I don’t think Firefox has FTP write support, but it is handy for just checking things.

I want to second net2ftp - It really does work slick.

From “Manage Domains” you’ll see a link next to your domain that says “WebFTP”. Select it and you’ll be dropped into the right directory and ready to go. You can edit files through it.
