What is Web Disk?

Web Disk (also known as WebDAV) is a drag-and-drop interface in cPanel which allows you to access your website's files as if it were a local drive on your computer. Web Disk is an obsolete technology and majority of modern operating systems do not support it anymore.

Due to a possible security issues Web Disk is disabled by default on newly built A Small Orange servers. Enable Web Disk for your cPanel is extremely easy. To get started:

  1. Log in to WHM

  2. Navigate to Service Configuration, then Service Manager

  3. Tick the 'Enabled' option next to cpdavd (cPanel DAV Daemon)

  4. Save your changes
