Finding root directory (newbie, obviously)


#1

Am installing Indexhibit, which instructs me to verify location of root directory. I have accessed my
’Index of ftp://mokward@redcedar.dreamhost.com/'
and the files within the index, one of which is ‘maureenoward.dreamhosters.com’.

Is the latter the root dir or is the index file itself the root? Or should I look somewhere else entirely? Thanks.

if you are using sub-domain maureenoward.dreamhosters.com with user mokwad, then the root directory of that sub-domain is /home/mokwad/maureenoward.dreamhosters.com/

Best piece of advice I can give you is don’t try to use dreamhosts webftp. get a real ftp client and install it locally. filezilla, fireftp (firefox plugin), winscp, etc http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Ftp
