Is there a way to upload css and js files to the the site's /css and /js folders through the Admin Console? Currently, the only way I envision this possible is through gaining ftp access to the website.

If your css/js is very short then I would say yes, you can add in admin area.

Go to System > Configuration > Design > Footer then add your code like this in Miscellaneous HTML box:

   your css

   your js snippet

However, if you have got very large css/js files like you said, then I would suggest, you should add as a file from ftp. There is no other way to upload files from admin area in native magento.

  • I don't see System > Configuration... could this mean that I don't have enough permissions to the Admin Console? Dec 7, 2016 at 22:23
  • Yes, that could be the case. Dec 7, 2016 at 22:40

    Or you are on Magento 2, where the configuration is in "Stores", not in "System", as in Magento 1. Dec 7, 2016 at 22:42
  • According to magentoversion.com I am on v1.9.2.4. I'll ask for more permissions and see if that helps. Thanks! Dec 7, 2016 at 23:04
