I'm sharing a dedicated server with another guy. Its like the blind leading the blind as neither of us really know anything about DNS etc. Anyway, its a root access server with oneandone and we have a few domains that are working fine with it, but I've just added another domain that I just cant get to work. I've set up the hosting for it and I can FTP to that domain name fine, but for the life of me I cannot access the html pages through a web browser - I just get page not found or a generic index page that I cant even find on the server! Theres a screenshot of the DNS record on plesk here: hg1digital . com /plesk.jpg (had to put spaces in to post it )
Does anyone have any ideas what I'm doing wrong? The fact that ftp works makes me think that the domain is installed correctly, but is there something else I need to do to make http requests go to the hosting webspace? The other domains we have, is working fine and I cant remember doing anything different :/
I also have a 1and1 server and also a newbie. I have had the same situation, and usually one of 2 things worked. Setting up the domain through THEIR comntrol panel and/or changing the index page to index.HTML as opposed to index.HTM.
hhmm, any ideas what I can do? Its creating the folders fine through plesk, and its letting me put in the username and passwords, but the browser just goes straight to the files - doesnt appear protected at all.
