    Hi-
    I am running the Betty Mills script and can login into SSH but silly me I don't know the command to access my files.
    #7 says: "cd" to the cgi-bin/bettym directory.

    Can anyone tell me what the actual command to so this is?

    BTW: I saw alot of posts about a bad feed. Has this been repaired as of now?

    Thanks!

    I all i can do is tell you how i do it... with cpanel...

    I use "putty" it's a shell utility..

    I open putty...

    type in the domain name

    mydomain.com
    enter

    login
    enter

    password
    enter

    ls (this lists all the root dir)
    enter

    cd public_html
    enter

    cd cgi-bin
    enter

    cd bettym
    enter

    perl bettym.pl
    enter

    the program runs...and builds the site...

    providing you have followed the instruction as to how the get everything where it needs to be..

    good luck...

    To change to a different directory, use the cd command (cd is an anacronym for "change directory"). So, if the cgi-bin directory is a subdirectory of the current directory, then to get into the cgi-bin directory, you would type:

    cd cgi-bin

    To show what directory you are currently in, use the pwd command (pwd is an anacronym for "present working directory").

    To back out of a directory, use: cd .. (.. means the "parent directory" of the current directory).

    To show what files are in the current directory, use the ls command (that's a lowercase L and ls stands for "list"). To show file properties (date, size, write permissions), use: ls -l (that's a lowercase L after the dash and it stands for "long").

    Well, I just happen to run Capnel and it worked like a charm. I did forget to add my Affiliate ID and change the images path to the new template set. But so far so good and I couldn't have done it without ya!

    And Dave, thanks for the tips. I've made a copy for my files.

    I love it when a site comes together
