Common problems while uploading your website files in cPanel:

Uploaded images not showing in the PrestaShop?

The simple reason for this problem is that the images are uploaded with wrong permissions. So, the Apache service will not be able to access correctly and ends up with 403 error. To avoid these users need to access the account through FTP or File Manager in cPanel and look for the images.inc.php file.


Uploaded your files but the site is not opening in the browser?

While logging in to your FTP account, you can see folders like mail, public_html, tmp, public_ftp, www etc. All the files have to be uploaded to the "public_ftp directory”. And need to ensure the main page is known as "index.php". All the file must be in the lowercase letters. Once the files are uploaded, the website can be accessed with a temporary URL which will be mentioned in the "Account Setup" letter. Once the domain name points to HostingRaja's DNS nameservers, the website can be accessed with your domain name.
