    I know this can be a really newbie question, but i never seen before a server like cpanel with all these options.

    and the guy of support where i bought this service say this question is out of the support contract and into designer job and wants money for resolve my problem. :mad:

    This is my trouble :

    I have problems with my past server, then i bought a service with cpanel to transfer the webpage , but when i put my directories, sub- directories and all the files in file manager my page doesnt work properly.

    in the "past server" i have my directories like this :

    in home " / " i had index.htm, some other files.htm , and my subdirectories named ( images, afi )

    under the sub-directory " afi " were around 34 more directories with numbers like this (aaa100, bbb101 , ccc102, ) then when i uploaded the directory " afi " my files in directories aa100,bbb101,ccc102, were uploaded automatic.

    and in "images" were all the pictures i use in the web.

    "" My question is, where i should put my directories, i got some named :
    cgi-bin, etc, mail, publicftp , publichtml , tmp and www. " :confused:

    the first thing i did where put my directories in www, then my index and files in home " / " were working but no the files under " afi " (aaa100, bbb102)

    then i put all directories in public html, but this doesnt work too.

    and finally in a useless attempt i put my directories in all the cpnel directories but this doesnt work.

    sorry about my english.

    email :

    if some one can help me i will be grateful. :eek:

    They go in /home/username/

    These will usually be placed automagically when you create a user account.

    Go on, have a guess
    The actual web files should go into the public_html/ directory and CGI scripts into public_html/cgi-bin/

    You might want to think about switching to a different web hosting provider as this is the sort of thing they should definitely help you with as part of their support for you.
