  • 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?

                I like the mark and the arrangement of type looks very governmental. The shield is integrated nicely into the helmet, but I don't really understand its purpose. You mentioned it injecting a "feel...

                Hi Bemi and welcome to GDF.

                Is it a good thing to represent yourself as having ''no thoughts''? Or am I misunderstanding your explanation of the word ''beminciu''.

                We ask all...
