Where to upload
The Home Directory:
Your html files, and or the files you want to make
accessible to the World Wide Web must be uploaded to
your account. When you first FTP into your account,
you'll be taken to your "Home" directory. Don't
confuse this with your "web directory." The home
directory is "not" accessible to the World Wide Web;
it's a private directory where critical system files
reside. DO NOT delete files that have been created
by the system, otherwise your web site may disappear
into cyber oblivion!
public_html and www
directory - (Where web accessible files are placed)
These are the two
directories, where files you want accessed from the
web must be placed. Open the folder "public_html" ,
which is your "web accessible directory." The folder
named "www" is actually a shortcut to public_html,
(both of them take you to your web directory).
Upload the files you want accessible to your
visitors and feel free to make the appropriate
sub-directories you'll require.
