Trouble linking pages





FaLLeN
I just got my hosting account with you guys and im trying to link my home page with the members page and links page.

Now what i did for the other hosting i had was:
eg:http://unkclan.frih.net/links.html

But it always gives me an error, i read about making an addon domain, but dont really know how Embarassed
It would be great if someone could write me a few steps on how to do it so i can get my site working.

Sorry if this has been answered but i searched and checked the FAQ and couldnt find the answer.

Thanks, FaLLeN.

First of all, the public_html is the base directory of your website. You don't need it in the url.

Secondly, unlike Windows, Linux is case sensitive. Meaning that member.html and Member.html are 2 different pages.

The links should currently be:
http://unkclan.frih.net/Pages/links.html
http://unkclan.frih.net/Pages/Members.html

you should be able to get away without using the URL.

if i want to link one page to another and they are both in the same directory (usually public_html by default) then instead of using:

http://unkclan.frih.net/Pages/Members.html

you should just ba able to use:

./Members.html

same deal goes if you are wanting to link to another file that is in a subfolder.
you may have a folder named 'forum' in your main public_html directory which houses your forum software. usually the default page for the forum would be something like index.html, so then to link it to the main page for example you would go:

./forum/index.html

therefore eliminating the need for the long URL in every link.
