  • 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?

                Most of the time that type of vinyl is printed eco-sol or full solvent so there wouldn't be any build up. It's not made for water base inks.
