setup a new site means exactly what you wrote
yes - it’s confusing - im confused - we’re all confused
perhaps what has caused the confusion on my part is that i really didn’t give enough time for things to get set up. i created the new acct and i DID have the web services as you describe. what started me down a path different than that which i am used to in creating these services, is that i initially could not login to my webspace using cuteftp with the user/password that i setup the acct with. tho i tried for many minutes, when i tried to connect to cybertoolzz.com from cuteftp i got the window asking for username/password - supplying the only acct info i had for DH at that time - i could NOT login using cuteftp.
searching the forums and not finding a solution that directly related to this issue (i expected this issue would have been posted about a zillion times) - i found a post that suggested the requirement of creating a second, additional user for accessing my web space specifically thru ftp.
now, i realized that this did NOT make any sense - i SHOULD have been able to login using cuteftp w/ the original acct user/passwd info with which i set up the service from DH.
however, after i added the 2nd ‘ftp user’ - i was able to login to cybertoolzz.com using this 2nd user’s acct info without a hitch and directly after i set up this 2nd user. of course, at this time i’m starting to get somewhat confused - why did the 2nd acct let me in IMMEDATELY and yet i still could not get in using the orig acct??
okay so i’m logged as in ‘canon’ using cuteftp - now at this point i see only 2 dirs for cybertoolzz.com - ‘logs’ and ‘Maildir’ in the right panel of cuteftp - and i move a few pics over - okay now i see the couple of jpgs i put there - fine - and im thinking okay now i should see these files when i open cybertoolzz.com in my browser - nada - only Index of…
okay so now im wondering where i need to put hese files so they will show up as default directory listing when i browse to cybertoolzz.com…
back to the forum - again i expected to see this question answered a 1000 times already - but i cant see anything in the forums directly related to getting the list of files to show up in the default directory listing. i DO see lots of ppl asking how to restrict this list from displaying by using .htaccess and i try using .htaccess w/ Options +Indexes – again nada.
so i’m sure i messed it up at this point but i try some other stuff (i DID remove the .htaccess file) - tried chmod settings on the files i u/l’ed - nope
back in the forums - im trying to understand exactly where i should place my files so that they show up - again i simply cant find a good direct answer to this simple question but i find something about making another additional folder(dir) that should contain the stuff one wants to show from a brower - the posts suggested this dir be called /domainName.com and that one put the files in this new dir.
again - this made no sense to me - i have never had to make a ‘directory’ called /cybertoolzz.com for any other web site i set up - but i try it neway - of course, nada.
so i try another approach - using ftp i create a new dir/folder callled /videos and move the files on cybertoolzz.com to that new dir - then i use Web panel and set my web directory to /cybertoolzz.com/videos. but all i get in the browser is Index of…
back at the Web panel i notice that the ‘logs’ dir shows as ‘/home/cybertoolzz/logs/cybertoolzz.com’ - now i have my web directory as /home/cybertoolzz/cybertoolzz.com/videos’ - again this description of exactly WHERE the web directory IS just dosen’t look right and looking at the location for the ‘logs’ dir - THAT looks backwards - like why is the cybertoolzz.com at the end?
so i am pretty confused at this point - still unable to view the list of files as a ‘Default Directory Listing’ no matter what i try.
so now i try to login to cybertoolzz.com with cuteftp and this time i try the orig acct info i used to set up the DH service (the acct that would not let in using cuteftp before) and NOW it works.
so i have a big fat mess and i need someone from DH to look at this, thx
