Default Why Doesn't my page show up? - 03-24-2011, 11:45 PM

After i upload my html and css files through filezilla, an index shows up as my homepage, and then i have to press a series of links to get to my actual homepage. how do i make my homepage appear once i type in the url?

Thanks,
40

You can name it index.html and place it in your public_html folder, or you can add the following line to your .htaccess file.

DirectoryIndex yourfilename.extension

yourfilename is where the real file name goes, extension is the file extension.

thank you very much, i see the page now. but now how do i link my css files to it? i thought that dreamweaver was saving them together with the html file, but i seem to have been mistaken.

Sorry if my questions are somewhat dumb, i am incredibly new to html/web development/etc.

Your links to the css files are not working properly. Make sure they are uploaded in the same directory and there is no misspelling. Also, that link at the top is pointing to a page on your computer, not on the website. The image is also pointing to a link on your computer.
