hi,
I am new to cPanel. I have been trying to set up a forward in index.html under public_html folder, but i have not been able to do that successfully. I absolutely have no idea where i am going wrong.

I have a folder called LRTF under webapps, and LRTF folder has its own index.html. my domain name is aftertelepathy.com; so i put a line in index.html (of public_html folder), which says
<frame name="Product" scrolling="yes" noresize target="prd" src="http://www.aftertelepathy.com/LRTF/index.html">.

i receive error like this:
Not Found

The requested URL /LRTF/index.html was not found on this server.

Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.
Apache/2.2.14 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.2.14 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/5.0.2.2635 mod_jk/1.2.28 PHP/5.2.9 Server at http://www.aftertelepathy.com/ Port 80

can someone help.

thanks in advance.

The file does not exist though.
aftertelepathy.com/LRTF/index.html

I'm not sure exactly what you're trying to do, but you might try using the Redirects tool in your cPanel. Redirecting from:

aftertelepathy.com/index.html
to
aftertelepathy.com/LRTF/index.html

Or simply add a meta refresh if that's all you need:


<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5;url=http://example.com/" />

The file LRTF/index.html doesn't exist hence you are receiving 404 error.

Also, instead of using META refresh, I suggest you to do redirection using PHP code or .htaccess. Some browser may not support META redirection and your page may not redirect.

hey thanks for the replies.

index.html exists under the folder LRTF.i think you are right..it has got something to do with meta tags...might try some other options..dont know how to do with .htaccess, though.
