There are several ways to manage your files in Virtualmin:

1- Use the username and password of your virtual-server to login to FTP on the default FTP port 21

2- Use the username and password of your virtual-server to login to SCP on the SSH port (default = 22)

3- Use Online File manager of Webmin

Method #3 is the most convenient way as you can create or extract archives as well

To use online file manager, First login to your Virtualmin panel using root username and password and select your Virtual server, then select Administrator Options -> Switch to Server's admin

Hint: This is equivalent to login to virtualmin using the username and password of the selected virtual server


Then select File manager from Webmin Modules:

To upload files, Select File -> Upload to current directory.
