Trouble figuring out paths



Hello all,

I am installing a custom font per these instructions: I uploaded everything via FTP and added the URL in the @fontface block of the custom CSS section of my theme. The format I used is: ‘/home/user/site-domain-name/wp-content/themes/theme-name/fonts/font-name/font-filename’

Here’s the problem. In the tutorial, the URL is of the following format: ‘public_html/site-domain-name/wp-content/themes/theme-name/fonts/font-name/font-filename’

I’m having trouble mapping this to DreamHost’s configuration. Since I have the path wrong, the custom font is not loading.

Thanks in advance.


Hello @sydbarrett74,

Our apologies for the delay. Can you confirm the name of your domain?
The format you have is accurate: ‘/home/user/site-domain-name/wp-content/themes/theme-name/fonts/font-name/font-filename’ but we can clarify that for you a bit. You just need to move it up a level past the public_html. You can always submit a ticket to our Technical Support team:

Thank you!
