Www Vs Public_html?

Recommended Posts

Just to elaborate a bit more on the symbolic link stuff:

what Bruce said means that if you enter the www directory, it's exactly the same as if you entered the public_html directory. It's just a shortcut.

To add to Bruce's remarks ... many people coming here from other web providers may be used to having a subdirectory of 'www'. With Unix/Linix, you can create an automatic redirect/mirror (or what Bruce refers to as a symbolic link).


Bottom line ... think of it like a front door/back door to your house. No matter which door you go in, you will still enter your house!


Same here. If you access your web site via FTP, no matter whether you click on the public_html folder or the www folder, you'lll end up in the same place!
