MyFreeola Simple Webspace Interface Uploading

Welcome to the Freeola support pages. This guide is designed to help you upload files to a Freeola Web Hosting service using the Simple Webspace Interface within MyFreeola. For more internet help topics please visit our main Support Page.


This Simple Webspace Interface is designed for the viewing of files already uploaded to your hosting service, or to add small files to your Freeola webspace. If you are looking for full file management, or the ability to upload larger files via FTP, we would recommend using an FTP Client, such as Filezilla.

  1. Firstly you will need to login to your MyFreeola account and select Web Hosting from the Web Sites & Hosting section of the left-hand navigation menu.

  3. MyFreeola will now display the details relevant to your Freeola Web Hosting. Select Upload Files to continue.

  4. You will now be given two options, select I want to quickly view my files and upload them using the Simple Webspace Interface option, then click Continue.

  5. You will now be shown the contents of the htdocs folder of your Freeola webspace. In order to add new files to this webspace select Upload Files to this Folder. On the window that opens simply drag and drop files into the box on the window that opens and they will start uploading immediately. Alternatively, click the box to bring up a file browser to select your files that way.

    If you are looking to replace existing files already on the server, ensure you have selected the Overwrite Files option.

    Please Note: Only files can be uploaded using this system, no folders will be uploaded.

  6. The links next to each file or folder will allow you to rename, delete or modify the permissions of these. Unless you have specific reason to do so, we would recommend not changing any of these settings as it could prevent your website from displaying.

The files are where they should be but I can't see the page. There should be an errors checklist to show where I and other people have gone wrong
