My folder and web sites structure via the onclould control panel is a mess because I didn’t understand the intent of the httpdocs vs. siteapps folders and because I didn’t understand the implications of web application auto install vs. manually installing applications, such as wordpress. Once I used the application vault to install one of my wordpress installations, everything is now in siteapps.
I’m about to go through a complete rebuilding of my sites to fix this and I would like to find out how to get some definitive answers and advice. So far I have gotten conflicting advice.
I want to install each website in its own folder in either httpdocs or siteapps.
Is there any advantage to installing these folders in httpdocs vs. siteapps?
Httpdocs has an associated httpSdocs. I understand that these two work together to support customer secure transactions. Is there a similar ability if my sites are installed in siteapps?
I noticed that when I installed a phpbb forum, the files got whisked away to its own folder that I did not create, for security reasons. Would this also happen if I installed my site in httpdocs instead of siteapps? When this happens, how can I control links between different parts of a site if different parts have been put in folders I didn't create?
Thank you for helping me to sort these things out.
