It is a long story but I ended up after several weeks on a VPS with Centos .. Here is my problem

 

Do my files get uploaded to this:

 

/var/www

 

or the folder I found that has the cgi and an index file in:

 

/var/www/name of VPs co./www

 

The www after the providor's anme is the one with an index and cgi bin

 

I am learning linux very very fast and I just love it, but I am not sure of the structure quite yet so help with this will help me get back online.

 

Thank you

I think the cgi and index file are just the parking page from your host

 

Your files should get uploaded to www folder

It would go into /var/www or /var/www/html. If you are still confused please run an ls- la in the www folder and please let us know what is listed. Also just a tip DO NOT let any files to be set to the permissions of 777.
