can't figure out the path to my file

#1 Post by AGreenLady » 2009-09-04 10:06

I uploaded a file to my domain and can't figure out the path.
I uploaded it to http://www.example.com
Under the public_html directory I added another directory called ToolBar and under that I put the article tec.html
I have tried all different versions of the path and they don't work. Shouldn't the path be http://example.com/toolbar/tec.html or http://example.com/public_html/toolbar/tec.html ?

If I right click and say copy url to the clipboard I get
ftp://user@example.com/public_html/ToolBar/TEC.html which works.

Is there any place in Filezilla that would allow me to see the path?

Thanks

The problem is character case. Most webservers are case-sensitive.

For example Hello, hello, HELLO and HeLlO are all different words.

I didn't realize the case sensitivity problem. Thanks for that tip.

I tried the file name with capitals as it shows in the Filezilla listing as well as all other combinations and nothing seems to work.

different host servers handle the public_html different ways
eg
brand 1 - it (public_html) is your apparent root folder
brand 2 - your root is one folder up the tree
so to help = what do you see in the filezilla folder?
that should help you
or you can just call your host provider and ask them for guidance
