There are several ways of uploading files to the server within uCoz.

Uploading via File Manager.

The most convenient way to upload files to the server is via File Manager. In this way you are able to see the list of files, create folders, search for files and upload several files to a certain directory simultaneously. It is also convenient to manage uploaded files (edit, view, re-name, remove, obtain the link).

See more about File Manager here: http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/37-14299-82295-16-1315308984

Uploading files via FTP

Uploading files via FTP has a number of advantages. The first and the greatest advantage is that you can upload large files via FTP. You may upload stuff in folders via FTP.

But FTP upload has some peculiarities as well.
  • It is not possible to upload files with html extension via FTP
  • The third-party program is required to work via FTP (FTP client)

File-archive or attachments to entries

This feature can be enabled in Control panel->Module settings->Fields of a new entry form (File Catalog, Online games, Ad Board). After checking the necessary boxes there, a feature of attaching files to the entry will appear in the module.

The limitations of file attachment are the same as for File Manager.
Attached files have one peculiarity. They can not be seen in the File Manager after uploading. And it means that editing or removing files will be impossible via File Manager. You may delete the attached to the entry file only when editing or removing this entry!

Speaking about FTP or File Manager, it goes without saying that users must not have permissions to upload files. But file attachment is another pare of shoes. Some users might have such a permission. As there is no automatic way to monitor the type of the files user upload, the best solution is pre-moderation for the groups that are allowed to attach files.

Note: When downloading files with exe extension, a warning will appear. This is the way the system reacts to those files. Users can safely continue the downloading process. Of course, they can refuse, if they want to.

Torrent-files are changed after attaching them to the entry (the system adds other values). Torrent-files uploaded via FTP are not changed. Torrent-files uploaded via File Manager can be re-named in case of changes.

Give server some time to replace the image. It takes only several minutes.

♪-Sanjay-♪, is it only the favicon.ico that you cannot upload or can you not upload anything?
If it is only the favicon, discuss that in the link Natashko provided - http://forum.ucoz.com/forum/6-6836-1

If the problem is that you cannot upload any file, then can you tell us a little more about what is happening?

♪-Sanjay-♪, stick to the thread about favicon. Btw your new favicon is displayed fine, you may need to empty browser's cache.

I'm sorry for my bad English, but i have a problem about one file. I upload it in file manager, but my site shows only like half of it. Half information is gone.
File size is 102 KB.
Is there some character limit too? Can that be a problem?

30stmest, welcome to uCoz!!! smile

The maximum permitted size of a file for uploading on a uCoz.com server is 15 Mb. This size increases if you buy additional disk space from uCoz.
The maximum permitted length of a filename with extension is 45 characters

Thank you. =)

Thats the thing, my file isn't over 15Mb, and filename isn't longer than 45 characters.

I solved the problem, made two files from one.

Skacikas, hmm its normal to have a long loading time for big files to upload , this may also be because of your internet speed , if it is low then it will take longer, now you also need to know that you never can upload a file bigger then 15 MB (just that you know)

Skacikas, first of all, make sure that the format of the song you upload is correct (.mp3). Second of all, make sure that its size is not larger than 15 MB. Check the amount of the disk space that is left.
By all appearances the problem is at your end. Try to use another browser or update the current one. Make sure that cookies are accepted by the browser, clear the cookies history; check whether JavaScript is enabled in your browser; clear the cache (temporary files) of the browser.

Recently I cannot upload to my File Manager or to file catalog,
I am waiting a lot of time with no progress.
I have tried different browser, close firewall program and no success.
I can easily upload stuff to servers, but not to Ucoz.
