I am unable to access the root directory. This is the information I was given :

 

No, the directory I gave is the document root as an absolute directory and would be used in a script configuration, etc. For example, if a file is in the public_html directory you would use /home/whimsic/public_html for the script to know where to look. You would not include the domain at the beginning.

Please be advised that the help desk does not provide developer level support for the building of html code or web pages including third party scripts.

 

Please refer to our user forums to have these kind of questions answered. There are many users that regularly visit the forums and are happy to share example code, discuss scripts they have used, and provide help for getting scripts up and running. The url is www.totalchoicehosting.com/forums.

Hi,

 

Welcome to the Family :rolleyes:

 

Can I just ask you to clarify your question please?

 

Do you mean what directory does www.****** go to? or do you mean what directory do you need to refer to in PHP or some other script language?

Do you mean what directory does www.****** go to? or do you mean what directory do you need to refer to in PHP or some other script language?

 

I believe both at this point. I am trying to do the following:

 

add free shipping until January 2005 - which would include a banner on front page that shows free shipping

 

change my home page from catalog to home page

www.whimsicalthingsboutique.com

want to get rid of that logo page and bring the customer right to the site

 

modify my affiliates page

 

Now I've been on these sites all day and I've been told I need to find the directory root, but I don't have a clue how to do that.

 

Thank you very much

When I type in

/home/whimsic/public_html/catalog

 

I get an error, what am I missing

 

Where do I perform the redirect so people go straight to the catalog? When I do this, will it eliminate my hit counter at the bottom of the page?

If you are using cpanel to setup the redirect leave the first box blank enter your index page (e.g. index.html) in the first box and in the second box enter

yoursite.com/catalog/

Hi Thomas,

 

You know, something crazy is happening - I was unable to perform the redirect myself using the instructions provided, but somehow somebody went in and did the redirect for me and its working perfectly.

 

Now all I need is to find out how I add free shipping and modify the home page to reflect free shipping

 

And how do I modify the affiliate page

I had someone else look at the redirect set up and I'm being told it is incorrect, that the search engines will not pick it up correctly. I need to understand what is going on here. I'm being told it shouldn't be an automatic over to catalog

Sorry about the trouble with the redirect. It appears that cPanel doesn't like you to leave that box blank.

If you don't want to use the redirect then you can add the following to .htaccess

>DirectoryIndex /catalog/index.php
