Where do I place my PHP pages?
In order for your PHP page to work, you must upload the file to your
CGI Server, by using an FTP client to
log into your cgi.yourdomain.com ftp space (where yourdomain.com
would represent your actual domain name). Then you would point your visitors to
that page by providing a direct link to that page or linking to it from your
normal web site. The URL for CGI pages is something like http://cgi.yourdomain.com/
where yourdomain.com would represent your actual domain name.
Please be sure that any configuration files you need are properly configured
before you upload them to the server. If your PHP pages use MySQL, be sure that
the correct username (usually yourdomaincom which would represent your
actual domain name without the dot separating the domain from the extension) and
MySQL database password entered into any configuration files you need for your
pages to work. Note that your database name is also the same as your username.
