first there inst an index.html to be loaded. if u prefer to use the galery.html, search the forum or the wiki to find out how to add an htaccess file to do that.
then, there is no pics folder, from here the images are trying to be loaded.

I am not quite understanding this. I am a 45 y/o newbie so learning this is a bit complicated. I am willing to pay someone to go in and get it straighten out if its not to costly. I can pay through paypal or other method
I can be reached here, through my e-mail d_smithphotography@yahoo.com or cell phone 336-470-1050

ok
lets start from the beginning.
I’m guessing you already have your own site, created and hosted on yur personal computer, right?
there it works fine?

now, you need to upload it to dreamhost. I would sugest that you would use dreamhost webftp: https://webftp.dreamhost.com/
fill the ftp server field with your dh machine name.
the same with username and password
when it opens, select the folder of your domain. there click on java upload and upload all the folder u have on your PC for the site.
depending on the size of everything, it can take a while.

let me know again, when u do that, and I’ll help u a bit more, ok?

ok done that
i can get the site to come up with this address (http://www.danielwsmithphotography.com/index.html/bL1245.00-artA02-1/artA02-1/)
But cant get it to come up with just typing (www.danielwsmithphotography.com) or (danielwsmithphotography.com) in the address bar

Hya.
Good job.
1st part is done.
U also manage to do something really funny that was to create a folder named index.html, which usually is associated to a file. but that doesnt matter.
now u have 2 option:
either u use webftp again, and move/copy, all the contents of the folder index.html/bL1245.00-artA02-1/artA02-1/ to the root of your domain, or u create an htacces to redirect your users to that subfolder.

http://www.webconfs.com/how-to-redirect-a-webpage.php

Redirect Old folder to New folder (htaccess redirect)

Create a .htaccess file with the below code, it will ensure that all your directories and pages of your old folder will get correctly redirected to your new folder.
The .htaccess file needs to be placed in the root directory of your website (i.e the same directory where your index file is placed)

Options +FollowSymLinks
RewriteEngine on
RewriteRule (.*) http://www.danielwsmithphotography.com/index.html/bL1245.00-artA02-1/artA02-1/$1 [R=301,L]

Note* This .htaccess method of redirection works ONLY on Linux servers having the Apache Mod-Rewrite moduled enabled.

it says it is already in there how about i e-mail you my password and you can check it out i just changed the password from my normal and can change it back afterwards I might have it uploaded in to many places and I don’t want to mess it up to bad


#9

I think i may have did something right but still cant figure out when i type in the address (danielwsmithphotography.com) it comes up with (/index.html/) at the end but it opens to my site I assume this is normal


#10

has i said before, its not normal to have a folder called index.html.
but since its running ok, I would mess with it anymore.
Although it quite slow, loading the images.

please remove your email from the previous post, or delete the post all together.

2 things on the /index.html/

  1. whenever someone made the htaccess for him, they probably put ‘index.html/’ in there, which is why it is displaying it like a folder,

  2. the reason why it is going to the file and no showing an error:

Apache has a built in feature called “look-back”

basically it just means that if theres an url www.mysite.com/first/second/third
it will try to find the last directory or file, if it doesnt find a folder called “third” it goes back a directory and tries to find “second”, if that fails then it tries to find “first”

in his case it is going all the way back untill it searches the base directory for a index.html file, which it is finding and showing.

it’s mostly used to make search engine/user friendly links.

(you could even take it a step further and use htaccess to assign any files called “index” to be called as "index.html"
so his url would be www.hissite.com/index/his/stuff/that/he/typed
