  • 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?

                Not quite sure what to tell you.

                Boston is only a Webpass city anyway, and only for condos and apartment buildings.
                Looks like they still plan to expand into a (very) few new cities:

                Yeah, I'm not sure how this one got through. I've changed the URL to something else.
