How do I access my web space from a browser?


#1

I created a new user via panel and it auto generated a password. I am able to log in via a FTP client by using ‘chiclet.dreamhost.com’ as the IP address.

I created a directory called ‘whatdidifindouttoday’ and uploaded one index.html and Winter.jpg.

But when I visit http://chiclet.dreamhost.com/whatdidifindouttoday/Winter.jpg, get “The page cannot be displayed”

What’s the URL of this web space?

Free PHP scripts installation service | My Blog

It doesn’t have a URL, as it is not publicly accessible.

To expand on this; directories in your user’s home directory are not accessible via HTTP unless you have added a domain or sub-domain to the hosting system and specified that directory as the ‘Web Directory’ for the domain.

If you wish, you can add a free dreamhosters.com sub-domain to the hosting system and specify the ‘whatdidifindouttoday’ directory as the ‘Web Directory’ for this sub-domain. You will then be able to browse to this directory using http://yoursubdomain.dreamhosters.com
