Webroot Directory


#1

If my host domain name is stoodup.net what is my web root on dreamhost?

is it /stoodup.net or / or something else?


#2

Unless you changed it form the default when you “added the domain”, on DH your “webroot” directory is the same name as your domain name. So, in this case, it appears to be “stoodup.net”.

Note that is very different than “/stoodup.net” in *nix (Dreamhost runs Debian Linux) terms.

The full “path” of that directory will be :

/home/.something/yourusername/stoodup.net

When referring to the directory in scripts or programming you can (and should) omit the “.something/” part of the path.
