I would LOVE some help here.
I want to say first that in the following sentences I am explaining as clearly as I can - I hope that in my effort to do so that I do not come across as demanding or sarcastic in tone - it is just my effort to lay out exactly what it is that I'm not getting about this
I'm not seeing instructions for how
to upload to the root of the server
It seems that this sentence tells me how I can tell if a picture already has
been uploaded to the root of the server (and I know I haven't done so because that's what I'm trying to figure out how to do):
"If you have an image named picture.jpg and you uploaded it to the root of your server the image will display if you enter http:// http://www.yourdomain.com/picture.jpg
in your browser."
This tells me how to tell if it hasn't
been uploaded to the root of the server:
"If it doesn't display you didn't upload it to the root." (I know I didn't upload it to the root - that's what I'm trying to figure out how to do)
And this one tells me to "try it out":
"Try it out to ﬁnd the root of your server!"
I don't understand what I am supposed to "try out"? I keep rereading the whole chapter to see if I missed where it explains how.
"Every hosting is a bit different. To upload a ﬁle to your server you need an FTP application like Cyberduck."
So I have Cyberduck, but how do I use that to find and/or upload something to the root of my server.
And finally, thank you so much for your amazing body of work - I am SO excited about getting around this learning curve so that I can add a bunch of your terrific bells and whistles to my currently bland website!
