  • 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!

    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

          what is inside the htdocs directory?


          • #6
            the animated gifs were I believe. I deleted them!

              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?

                Hi ray12,
                What did you write in the cover letter if you weren't asking for an internship until the end? Just about learning from the company?

                I always expect some form of crit after sending a proof to a client. When there is no critique, I am concerned because I fear the client hasn't looked at the proof properly.

                Studies are a big investment in time and money. I wouldn't hire a designer that refused to invest in themselves to learn the basics.
