View Full Version : FTP help

I have uploaded my site but it is not showing up. I still get the powweb page.
I see there is a folder named 'htdocs' which has webalizer and index.html in it. - Should I have uploaded all my files and folders into this folder? I have just uploaded them all into the site as I have previously done with other web hosts. I have not come across a htdocs with the index.html in it.
If I delete index.html from this folder, will this do the trick. - Can I move webalizer to its own folder?
Any info, please
the /htdocs folder is your DOCUMENT_ROOT directory. It's where some Unix webservers would have public_html.
The file /htdocs/index.html is your Powweb under-construction page. I would rename it something like powindex.html and then upload your files there.
If you have turned on the webstats, you should not fool with the /logs and the /etc directories. The /etc folder contains a configuration file for the webalizer, and the /logs folder contains the raw information needed to generate your statistics!
Your updated statistics can be viewed in a web browser by going to http://<whatever your domain name is>/webstats. You will also notice a "webstats" folder in your /htdocs directory.
When you FTP into your site you should see the following directories:
And that's all that should be at that level.
I thought the welcome e-mail mentioned that you must upload to /htdocs. Lots are having this problem, have they changed the e-mail?

thanks for answering my question - I get it now. ;)
Jeff, I don't think that they changed it ... its just that some are not reading all of this quite lengthy welcome mail ... or they overlook that detail ... and to be honest I made that mistake, too, but I figured it out once I saw the index in the htdocs.
Yes, I did the same thing at first too, until I looked inside htdocs
The welcome e-mail does mention this, at least mine did.
