NOOOO don't delete, those are what people can access on tour page.


harriko

what is the tour page? isit the things that u link to my site to view from this site? does all servers have this?

You should back up all your folders using ftp before you start changing or deleting any of them. ;)When you upload your files to public_html the file is migrated to the www folder. So look in the public_html folder and you will see the same files there. If you put index.html in the public_html folder, look in the www folder and you will see it migrated there. ;)Nils

I think he meant "your" page and typed t instead of y.

harriko

so why is there public_html folder when www is exactly the same? so whenever i upload files i upload it to public_html. yes?


szupie

I think public_html is where you're supposed to put your files that can be viewed by others. And I'm not really sure, but I think the www folder is just a short-cut to public_html


harriko

isit possible to make another folder in the root folder. i want to make one for another site for mobile phones which has its own folder. and also make a subdomain to it. isit possible? thanks


NilsC

In your public_html folder create a new folder name it whatever you like, then place your html files in that folder and when you type the new path name you will see the website.

That will take you out of root, there is no need to type www.

ok! thanks people! having a proper server has more control on the website your doing. the other free ones they got advertising and stuff like that in the space you have. not much freedom! is there any free domain names that has dns, like http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ i noticed that it doesnt cloak the url and things like that. uni.cc doesnt work at the moment, but is there any other alternative for free dns domains? thanks again!


szupie

http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ is pretty nice. I don't think it has cloaking though.

NilsC

You have close to the same control as if you had your own server. That is why you don't have only a www folder that you have to put your whole wesite inside.

 

You can addon scrips, setup forums, add a store. You have close to unlimited options. Setup your main website in the root folder to have as short a path as possible, then create a subfolder for development and put your pictures and buttons in a separate folder, that way everything will be organized and easy to change around. Put the include files in a include folder etc. etc.

 

No advertizing is put on your site because you contribute posts here and that is how you pay for your space

 

As for free domain names, I have no idea. how to get one. I have paid for all mine so I own them and have full control. I don't think I would use a free service unless I had full control over the domain name.

 

Look in your cPanel to see how to setup your MX record and email server. It's a lot of nice features.

 

Keep an eye on bandwidth when you start out so you don't lock yourself out by using up all your resources.

Quite right - they are all for/created by FrontPage. I've removed these file:

1. "_private" folder

2. All the Files and Folders that start with "_vti"

3. The postinfo.html and .htaccess from the public_html dir - basically all the files that were present when you logged in first - and it works just fine. My public_html now contains just the index.php and the subfolders for images and scripts.

 

As for your free domain name you can try http://forums.xisto.com/no_longer_exists/ - though am not sure if you can change their nameservers to that of Xisto. Otherwise the whole idea of the domain linking to your site at Xisto will fail (unless dot tk also has a domain forwarding feature).

My opinion is if we start the way we have been going with economic crisis we all will be out of jobs. This country will never go back to the way that it once was. Soon we will see people on the streets begging for money and any job that comes their way. The 1930's Great Depression is coming soon, and what do we THE PEOPLE OF THESE UNITED STATES to do about it. Nothing I say, because we are cowards we don't want to stand up and say,"hej stop this war we do not want it." Half of the Americans don't even know why we fight the war we do.I am sick and tired of seeing people around me suffer aren't you? If you're answer is yes, then what do we do about it? We are the true leaders the PEOPLE OF AMERICA.Lets make a difference!
