Both previous post are fixed..but a new problem came up!

I still have a problem with shorewall. If I allow it to run then I cannot connect to the server. I can only connect to it if I leave it off.

The problem now is that the directory I am supposed to upload all the files to, in order to be able to view them from my browser is supposed to be:


I connect through the SFTP program just fine but this directory does not exist! Anyone have this problem before? Its supposed to be there. Anyone know the commands to create it so I can then upload the files to it?

Thanks for the help.

Are you sure that /var/www is where your web files are? What does the DocumentRoot directive say in your Apache configuration?

mkdir directoryname
will create a directory

chown -R username directory
Will grant a user ownership (and thus write capabilities), of that directory.
