    I am using cpanel to edit a sub webpage. I am able to pull up the sub page. I can make the change. Then I can save it. I am able to see the changes I made correctly in cpanel, but when I log out and type in the main address in the address bar I get this error:

    [ERROR] Can not open directory for URI: /!

    The subpage I'm editing is an*.shtml page. Do these type of pages have to be handled differently? Any help you can offer would be appreciated.

    Howdy,

    Are you seeing any errors in the apache error_log?

    Thanks!

    Please check the permissions and ownership on the directory where this error is occurring. They should be 755 for the file permissions and username:username for the ownership of files and folders inside of public_html while public_html itself should be username:nobody ownership (here username is the cPanel username).

    You should be able to see the file permissions in cPanel's File Manager. An FTP client like Filezilla should be able to show the ownership and file permissions.
