When I login to CPanel and click on the "File Manager" icon the file manager appears incapable of displaying or creating files or directories "above root". Yet, I'm told that certain files or directories must be placed about root.
Am I correct that CPanel's File Manager has this limitation - that it can't display or work with files "above root" - and, if so, how do I create a directory or file "above root" - using CPanel?
Sorry if there's a simple answer to this. I've looked and searched for awhile and must keep missing it.
P.S. Apologies if this belongs here or in the Apache or Linux forums or elsewhere. I did a site search and found CPanel threads all over the place. :(

Can you see the folder that houses your web site(s)? Can you get above that?
Click on a folder icon to navigate.
Click on a name to view its properties.
/ (Current Folder)
Create New Folder
Create New File
CPanel info: cPanel Build 11.23.6-RELEASE 27698
This is a virtual server and I'm the (shoddy) WHM/CP admin.
WHM settings as follows:
Default Home Directory IS /home
* Enter the location where you wish for new users' home directories to be created. By default all directories matching the "Home Directory Prefix" are checked for available disk space and the directory with the most free space will be used.
Home Directory Prefix IS home
Additional home directories matching the following value will also be used for new home directory creations. This option only takes one value. A blank value disables this feature.
I'm hoping for an "Ah-ha!" moment. The lightbulb simply isn't going on for me. Thanks to anyone who can find the switch. ;0)

I thought that "/" was synonymous with "root" of a domain's virtual server and since / = "Current Folder" there had to be a way to access higher levels in the dedicated server's directory structure.
