Unix file system
Your UNIX hosting account has a home directory in which you store
your site content. When you log into your account using FTP you
will be placed within your home directory. You should upload the
pages, images and files that make up your site to this directory.
Within your home directory is a folder called 'cgi-bin'. This folder
is used for storing any CGI Scripts you wish to use on your account.
Path To Your Home Directory
You may need to reference the path to your home directory in your
scripts. The full path to your home directory is based on the username
of the hosting account. The full path to the home directory for
a hosting account with the username 'joebloggs' would be:
'joebloggs' being the HOSTING account name and 'j' and 'o' the
first and second characters of the HOSTING account name. You must
substitute 'joebloggs', 'j' and 'o' with the correct values according
to the username of the hosting account. Note that when your account
is accessed via the SSL secure server, the full path is different,
see the SSL page for more information.
