    couple of questions on cpanel, i have my site uploaded into the public_html folder but i can't find it unless i use my ip address and user name. following the faq answer of changing to a 644 permission, no luck. how do i check that it is owned by me? somewhere in this forum i read about apache configuration and to check "/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf" to check that the domain is pointing to the correct directory. how do i find this location? have searched on google, read through these forums trying to work out what i am doing wrong and how i can fix my problem
    thanks for any help

    So you're saying if you go to example.com (replacing example.com with your domain), you don't see the file. But if you go to IP/~username (replacing IP with the IP address, username with your username), you do see the file?

    That was correct, I tried everything I could think of, read through these forums for a solution(found some answers for different questions) and the reason turns out to be the wrong name server linked to my account from the host providers. 3 days of pulling my hair out..........But I did learn some things along the way.

    And is why you should have asked your provider to begin with. ;)

    mate, started asking questions of the host provider, sent numerous emails stating my problem but didn't really get the answer i should have. people make mistakes and someone over looked the nameserver. ended up here because i started to believe i some how stuffed up something inside cpanel somehow.
