First, thank you in advance for any help. I signed up with dreamhost several days ago, and registered my domain with them at the same time. At the moment, I don't have any plans for a fancy website. I just wanted a space to upload family pictures, etc. for people I know to download.
In other words, all I want is a simply directory listing of the files. However, when I go to mydomain.com, nothing is showing up, even though I have uploaded the pictures. On the FTP site, I went into the folder called mydomain.com, and created a directory called pictures. Within the mydomain.com/pictures folder, I created two subdirectories, called /friends and /family. These two subdirectories are where I uploaded the files.
However, when I go to mydomain.com, nothing comes up! I get a "the page cannot be displayed" page. I searched on the web, and I found instructions telling me to create a public_html directory and to check my permissions. I did both, but I still can't see anything.
Again, all I want to accomplish is to go to http://www.mydomain.com, and be able to see the listing of directories, which the user can go through and click on the various pictures. Please help. Thank you again!
