Windows file system
Each Windows 2000 hosting account has a home directory in which
you store your site content and databases. When you log into your
account using FTP you will be placed within your home directory.
Inside your home directory there are two folders:
|This folder is the root of your web site, you
should place inside it the web pages, scripts and images that
make up your web site. You should call your home page index.html
or index.asp and place it within this folder.
|The web server and thus your scripts have full access to this
folder, however the folder is not directly accessible by your
web site visitors. This is therefore a good place to store any
Microsoft Access databases or data files.
You may need to reference the path to your home directory in your
scripts. We recommend that you use relative paths and take advantage
of the Server.MapPath function in ASP. If however you do wish to
use the full path, it would be as follows:
'joebloggs' being your HOSTING account name and 'j' and 'o' the
first and second characters of your HOSTING account name. Note that
when your account is accessed via the SSL secure server, the full
path is different, see the SSL page for more information
