Renaming files
Often, changing the name of a file is a necessary adjustment to certain parts of a 
website. A file’s name can be changed by using the Rename File function in the 
File Manager.

1  To access the FILE MANAGER, see

2  Click on the icon next to the file you wish to rename.

3  Click on the words Rename File on the right hand side of the screen:

4  Type the new name for the file in the blank field next to the button marked 

5  When finished typing the new name of the file, click on the button marked 

NOTE: If the rename was successful, the following will appear (except filename1 
will be the old name of the file, filename2 will be the new name, and /home/folder 
will be the name of the directory you are in):

Renamed filename1 -> filename2 in /home/folder/


When renaming files, make sure to keep the same file extensions or they may not 
be able to be executed or viewed.
