uploading files

Postby lyn10 » 21. November 2008 02:23

Hi
I created a website using localhost and am now trying to upload to the web, however, I can't figure out which directories I should be uploading ... I have tried uploading the entire XAMPP directory as follows but without an index file it doesn't work ... can anyone tell me what I should be doing, thanks.
Lyn
Xampp
Htdocs
Joomla
Templates
business_blue
css
images

index.php
nav_menu.php
head.swf
template_thumbnail.png
templateDetails.xml

Install Joomla in the htdocs folder then access by using a URI in your browser:
http://localhost/joomla

All files and folders you want to be able to access from XAMPP using http://localhost should be placed in the Apache Server's configured DocumentRoot, which is the htdocs folder

To upload Joomla to an Internet based server, after doing some work on it locally perhaps, simply upload the whole joomla folder and all it's contents from the htdocs folder to your site's web root folder at your hosting provider.

Does this help?
