File Location


#1

Hello, I’m a total newbie. I’ve uploaded a .swf file and the html and gif files that go with it using filezilla, no problem there. I uploaded these files to my ftp.domain, I can see the files in webftp. Where do I move these files to? I have not built a website yet, but in the mean time I’d like to display this video on a sales page which has it’s own hosting included. Using a “src=http://www.mydomain.com” is this possible? Thanks for the help.

You need some sort of hosting where you’ll get a mydomain.com type folder in your home directory. If you don’t have a registered domain here yet, you can use a dreamhosters domain in the mean time. Go to the panel and select Domains -> Manage Domains and create a New Fully Hosted domain and call it something like "jeffop.dreamhosters.com"
Be sure to make it a subdomain of dreamhosters.com and you’ll be fine. Then the URL for your HTML and SWF will be:
http://jeffop.dreamhosters.com/launcher.html (or something like that).

And some new users often make this mistake of uploading files to wrong directory.

After you have a domain and hosting as Scott said, you will see three directories in your webftp. “Maildir”, “Logs”, and “yourdomain.com”. Remember to upload yours files into “yourdomain.com” directory.

@glob: There is no public_html here.

Quit showing off… you only know that because you have an account here and didn’t register on the forum just to spam sites that aren’t even hosted here. :stuck_out_tongue:

I have a sudden urge to go over to bluejoke and tell users to upload all their files to the domain.com folder :stuck_out_tongue:
