OpenCMS uses a VFS (Virtual File System) rather than your normal file 
system, with the files actually stored in your database.  This means 
that you either have to create the files using the OpenCMS workplace, or 
import them somehow.  In order of increasing difficulty, you could 
upload individual files or zip files, you use the synchronisation 
feature, or you could create a module externally and import it.
