I've used the search function, and everything just confuses me, so here goes:
I uploaded one of my pages into the private section of public_html. Now when i try to view it i get the login thing, and i put in my username and my cpanel password but it won't do it. How do i know what my password is?
I'm not too sure what you mean. Do you want to password protect a file/directory? if so then there is a function in the CP to do this. I thinks its called "PASSWORD PROTECTED PAGES". I would check but I believe that Server 2 has just gone down again.
like, when i upload my page into the private folder, and then try to view it, it asks me for a password (expected) but my cpanel password doesnt workl.
What can't you do? Why not ask a Moderator to help you out. I believe that they can access your account which might be able to solve your problem. If you don't want to contact them then I would advise you to create a folder in the public_html root and protect it with the thing that I mentioned above (Password Protected Pages). Upload any files you like and that way there password protected. Try not to give up.
