Upload and Extract Files in Virtualmin Panel

Virtualmin Panel includes a file manager where you can upload and extract zip files or any other files.

We recommend uploading files via FTP. However, if you prefer to upload via the file manager, follow the steps below. Step 5 shows how to extract uploaded files, whether they were uploaded via FTP or by the file manager.

  1. When logged in to VirtualMin Panel, select the site you want to upload files into and then click “File Manager.”
