Overview

This article explains how to upload single files to the ProCDN from your local computer.

Important Note

This is not the recommended way to utilize the ProCDN service. While you can upload single files using the ProCDN's "Media Manager", the process may be slow and tedious. Also, individual files larger than 20MB are not permitted. Please click here for best-practice setup instructions.

Instructions

  1. Log into the EdgeCast Control Panel.
  2. Click on the Media Manager tab. See Figure 1:

  7. Now, select your file. It will become highlighted in blue. Click the Load to Edge icon. See Figure 6:

  8. That's it! Note the URL that displays when you click on one of your files (see Figure 7):

    It will take about an hour for your changes to be propagated through EdgeCast's system, and then you will be able to view your file at that URL.
