Hello, this is my first day with you guys, so forgive me if I'm ignorant....
I have not changed my dns yet, but I am looking at my site through the url given in the initial email. Before I put some test files up in the public_html directory, I deleted everything that was in the folder initially, but I think I removed the .htaccess file too!
I created a new one to see if the 404 error could point to my custom error page, but nothing happens when i upload it to the server. I cannot see the file, nor does an incorrect URL cause my error page to come up. Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong? This is my first time using Apache, I've been used to IIS for some time, so any help is greatly appreciated.
