View Full Version : need some help please

sorry I need some more noobish help. This is the first time I have done any of this, so I used iweb to easily create a three page site to start with. I uploaded everything and moved the folder which I titled TravelerGuild (this is the folder that contained the site with all of its materials) to the "www" directory. When I click on the page that I titled index.html, everything works fine. It takes me to http://www.travelerguild.com/TravelerGuild/TravelerGuild.html and has everything I put on it including the links to the other pages. So I wanted to make that my main site without all the /TravelerGuild/TravelerGuild.html so I took the index.html file out side of the TravelerGuild folder and moved it into the "www" directory. When I click on it the HTTP 404 file not found error pops up so I figure that maybe it wants everything that I uploaded with the TravelerGuild folder to not be in the folder but to have everything directly in the "www" directory, which I try but the site still doesn't work. Am I missing something obvious? I try not to ask for a lot of help but I have been trying to solve this for the past 15 hours and have lost patience, which I knew would happen eventually since I am working with technology:eeww:
It appears your index file is a redirect:
http-equiv="refresh" content="0;url= TravelerGuild.html"
However there is no TravelerGuild.html in your /www directory.
I would suggest moving everything from /www/TravelerGuild to the /www

So I deleted everything and I uploaded it again to start fresh. I moved everything from the TravelerGuild directory and put it in the www directory. there is now an index.html and then the TravelerGuild.html and neither of them work, they just take me to the HTTP 404 error page. The other pages (travel_news and forum) do work though. how do I make the index file not a redirect?
If I go to:
http://www.travelerguild.com/index.html I get redirected to:
To cut out the redirect remove the contents of your index file and copy the contents of TravelerGuild.html to it...
However it is working for me at this time when i just access the domain name. Your browser may have cached the old 404 error page and if so try to force a browser reload/refesh by using SHIFT+reload, CTRL+F5 (or in some cases Shift+CTRL+Reload).
Also try http://travelerguild.com/
