Uploading OpenCart files

There are two common methods for uploading files to a web host:

  • Using cPanel File Manager Utility
  • Using an FTP Client

We will learn both the methods with examples.

Tip

The first method is suggested because we can upload the installation files faster to the host.

We suggest installing OpenCart on a directory, such as http://yourwebsite.com/store

By doing this, we will able to close the shop temporarily if we need to later, without affecting the root domain at http://yourwebsite.com.

Let's start with the suggested cPanel method.
