  • Having troubles uploading/

    hello, sorry if this seems like a stupid question.... but it's a question none the less

    i am using Transmit to upload a website. I see two folders "cgi-bin and htdocs". I noticed that the 'under construction' gif was placed in the cgi-bin folder, so i deleted it and copied my website there. the website does not work! please help!

    thanks

    I think... and may be corrected that cgi-bin is usually for email connected to the site?
    Is there not a main root directory?

      htdocs is the site root. The files should go in their not cgi-bin.

      If a www directory exists they should be placed in there rather then htdocs most likely.

      + htdocs/
      --+ index.html
      --+ about.html
      --+img/

              This may seem too simple... but have you tried refreshing or deleting your history and cookies to see if it's just your machine?
              Maybe test it on another computer?

                It's probably a gray camouflage stock texture multiplied over a burlap texture multiplied over vector art of bricks.
                You can get gray camo textures just about any stock site.
                For example,...

                I wouldn't even try using the tire for an A.
                Incorporate it in another way.
                That doesn't look like vector art. Photoshop? Either way you might have issues with the way that tire is illustrated...
