Cannot see my site after upload


#1

I have read thru many similar posts, but cannot find a solution.

my site is www.tcmforhealth.com

I use dreamweaver to upload files, but all I see is the quickstart.html file. I tried editing that quickstart file, but do not see the changes; I also uploaded a index.html file, which is supposed to superscede the quickstart file, but nothing changes.

I have this setup in Dreamweaver:
server name: www.tcmforhealth.com
root directory: /public_html/
web url: http://tcmforhealth.com/public_html/

I have tried a number of variations, but cannot see anything.
I suspect it is something simple… but what?

Please help this newbie!

/public_html/

That’s the problem. Dreamhost doesn’t use that in its file structure. Some other hosts do.

This wiki page: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Setting_up_Dreamweaver
Seems to indicate that should be your domain name, they make it look confusing tho because they used a dreamhosters sub-domain in the example.

I had tried following the setup suggested there, and it didn’t work.
I went back to it again…

server name: tcmforhealth.com
root dir: tcmforhealth.com/
web url: http://tcmforhealth.com/

and on my dreamhost panel, edited web directory: /home/username/tcmforhealth.com
(I think this is where I had the error to start).

Now it is working!
Thanks LakeRat.
