Hi, the server I am trying to load a site on says the files need to be in a public folder, I can see the folder in the remote site but when I have put files up before they just go onto the remote site, how do I get them into that folder? If I put public or any other name in the host directory it says not valid file or no permission yet if I leave it blank it will connect to the server
If I put public or any other name in the host directory it says not valid file
You don't need to append "public_html" or any other name to your Web site root... your instuctions simply mean you upload all your site folders into that "public_html" folder... as apposed to say... the "cgi" or "public_shtml" folder.
So simply open the "public_html" folder before you upload any of your files. As mentioned, get your host to help if this is your first time uploading.
