You have a directory because your main page should be saved and published as index - no more and no less.

On the other, you have a problem with at least one database. Hang tight and someone who understands the errors better than I do will be able to help.

No! LOL Just save your main page as index and publish it to your public_html folder.

you need to create a page called index and then publish to public_html

if you are using Bluevoda save your page as index then when you publish the html extension will be added automatically. so just save your page as index without anythingelse

seem like that you want to install b2bsoftbiz script in your root directory right? if yes you need to upload all the file of that script to your public_html and then follow next instuction which is come with the script

04-15-2006, 03:24 AM
the script is in bluevoda in blueftp listed as index in public_html still no love from it do they make a slow torture device i can use on it?

04-15-2006, 03:38 AM
you need to upload all the file direct to public_html ,don't be confuse, what you are doing now that you upload all the file to the folder called index, that is not correct. first you need to open in your local computer the folder of that script, you will see many file such as php.file, images etc and then you upload it one by one to public_html or you can upload all in once by selecting all file and upload to public_html

Scripts ARE NOT to get inside your index page. You must upload the script to your site. i reccomend that you DO NOT install it in the root directory (public_html) but create a separate directory in your site, called f.e. "softbiz" and then install the script there. These scripts USUALLY but not always have their own initial page, which is USUALLY called "index.php". To link your Bluevoda index page to the script index.php page, just create a link to your BV index page, that will get your visitors to the initial page of the script. The link should be like this: http://www.yourdomain.com/softbiz/ if you install the script in the "softbiz" folder. If you install it in your root directory, the link from your home page to the script will look like www.yourdomain.com/index.php (http://www.yourdomain.com/index.php)

Of course, these are guesses, since i cannot be sure that your script has indeed it's first page called "index.php". But 99% i'm correct

Please also note that if you want your site to consist only of the softbiz pages, and you don't want to have any other pages, then you can simply install the script in your root directory, and let the script's "index.php" page be also your homepage. In that case you should not publish any BV "index" page

I suppose that you have instructions, so it should not be that hard. Every script consists of a number of files. Many scripts also require one or more databases. Some have an installation wizard that will do the installation (as the Fantastico does) once you have uploaded all the files on your server. I can't know what is your case.

Ayway, experience is something that comes with time. If you need to be up and running soon, just give them the $20 and then get all the time you need to figure it out. Wyou will also have the help of seeing the content of your site and this will help you understand easier.
