You can use the myhosting.com File Manager to create any folder you need anywhere in your website. It is always a good idea to keep your website organized with folders so that your root folder is not cluttered with all the files for your website. This makes it easier to navigate and know the purpose of each file you have.

  1. To start creating a folder, access the myhosting.com File Manager from your Control Panel.
  2. The File Manager starts in what is called the "root" folder of your site. This is the very top of your website folder structure. If you wish to create a sub-folder of an existing folder, please navigate to that folder. You can navigate those folders simply by clicking on the folder name. You can find out what folder you are in by the "Folder" field in the File Manager.
  3. Once you are in the location you want to create a folder, click on the "New Folder" icon. A pop up window will appear prompting you to name this new folder. Please enter in the name of the folder you wish to create and click on "OK".
  4. After a short moment, you will be returned to the File Manager window and it will refresh itself to show you the newly created folder.

There are some folders that are already made for you to help you with your website. The "cgi-bin" folder is a place where you can place all your CGIs to add more interactivity to your website. The "fpdb" folder is where you must place all your Microsoft Access databases because this folder gives all files in it modify permissions from a visitor.

Note: You may see some folders with a "_" prefix like "_vti_script". Do NOT touch or delete these folders. They are critical to the operation of the FrontPage extensions and changing them in any can can corrupt the FrontPage Extensions and possibly breaking your website from functioning normally.
