Please forgive me I am a newbie and doing my best to learn this stuff properly.
Right now I have wordpress installed on http://capappasart.com and I am thinking of creating some ebooks and uploading them to my site. I was thinking of setting up a new directory titled /ebooks so my ebooks would be located at http://capappasart.com/ebooks/title-of-book.pdf.
My question is related to what would happen when I update my version of wordpress through Dreamhost. When a new version of wordpress comes out, I go to the dreamhost goodies page and update it there. They then move capappasart.com to capappasart.com.old. If I create a new directory of /ebooks, would this interfere with updating it through Dreamhost? I’m not going to update anything right now, but I just want to make sure I understand so I don’t break anything.
