From the front page of the game panel, select “File Management” from the left hand side menu, as seen below. And with that, you’re done. You’re now on your web SFTP client, which can move, upload and delete files under 100MB. If you need to work with files larger than 100MB you will need to use an SFTP client like Filezilla, which is detailed below.
