Where is my site?
That’s the question we finished with yesterday. My site was showing up on piproficient.com, but not on my bluehost dashboard. So, I tried to fix this.
I started by going through the files in cPanel, the file manager for the virtual server I’m using, BlueHost. I think that the reason the website isn’t showing up on the dashboard is because the site manager is looking for files in the /web folder of the HTML, while all the folders are simply in the HTML under the same heiarchy of /web. It’s folder management. So, I could just move all the files back to the folder, right?
Wrong. Somewhere along the process, I deleted a key that authenticated the folder, or something. No idea. It doesn’t make sense why moving it back doesn’t work, but I’ll have to see. I am now trying to change the dashboard settings to recognize the folder in /html instead of /html/web. It’s not working.
Alright, I think I have a solution. I’m going to copy the site to piproficient.com, then make a redirect to piproficient.com/web. this way, it works well. So, I get to work. I just import code to tell the HTML page for piproficient.com to redirect to the same thing, but in the web folder. This is so it always shows the updated version when I log in from the website.
So, I found the problem, found a solution, and made a redirect. Fairly straight forward. I don’t even want to talk about the HTML, though. Basically I just followed this guys tutorial and didn’t really learn much. Ah well, the problem is over now, and I have my domain all set up. Tomorrow I’ll start the real work of gasp writing articles!!
