How do I upload files and manage the database on my Linode? Is there a file or database manager?

Linode doesn't install or automatically configure a GUI File or Database Manager on your Linode when it's created -- but the good news is you've got plenty of options.

File Manager
If you're on Windows -- Try out WinSCP.
On a Mac? -- Try out Cyberduck.

Both of these are easy to use and you don't need to install anything on your Linode to get them to work.

Database Manager
If you are planning to install MySQL on your Linode, you can install PHPMyAdmin -- this'll let you manage your database from a browser.

Planning to use PostgreSQL? You can use something like PgAdmin to manage your database.
