Create a web disk login account in cPanel
Web disk is used to allow drag and drop files easily from your computer to your hosting account. You can also navigate through the files in your hosting account, just as you do the files on your local computer. It is the implementation of WebDAV protocol. To create a web disk login account, follow the below steps
Step 1 Login into cPanel.
Step 2 Go to Files section and click the web disk option.
Step 3 You can view the Web Disk Accounts Main Page and for creating a new web disk account, enter the username, password and choose the required domain using the drop down option and click the ‘create’ button.
Note: Once you place your cursor in the “Directory” text box, the system will automatically fill in the path to a directory using the “public_html” directory and the username you entered in the above Step 1. You can modify the directory path and name according to your own specific needs. However, if this is your first time using Web Disk, you may want to leave it as default until you are comfortable using the Web Disk feature in cPanel.
Step 4 A successful message for creating a web disk account will be displayed and click the option ‘Go Back ‘.
Step 5 When the page loads, you will see a four-column table consisting of the following information
Login – This entry contains the login account username.
Directory – This entry contains the path to the directory associated with the Web Disk login account.
Access Web Disk – Click on the Access Web Disk button to use the “Web Disk” program.
Actions – The “Actions” column provides two features:
Change Password – It’s used to change the password of web disk account.
Delete – Click on the Delete link to remove the Web Disk login account from the system.
Note: If you use Windows Vista®, Windows® 7, Windows® 8, or Windows® 10, you must select Enable Digest Authentication to access your Web Disk.
