Creating a Subdirectory?

Hey everyone,

 

Im new at creating websites/hosting etc. and Im trying to learn as much as I can as I go instead of just paying someone to get it done. My latest roadblock is creating sub-directories for my website. I recently purchased a directory/classifieds script and would like to add it to my website but under a sub-directory. How do I create this directory. In my cPanel account I've seen adding a domain/ sub-domain but I don't want that. I want to create i.e. www.mysite.com/directory - how do i get that done?

 

Thanks in advance!

Thanks for your quick reply!

 

Correct me if I'm wrong ... the folders I create are representative of the directories I have? Im asking because now on my temp. site I have folders titled css, images, scripts etc., should they be like that or should all be in one folder because the template Im using is a one page template.

 

For this script that I want to install all of the files in the zip I downloaded should go in the folder I will create?

Yes, just create the folder /home/<username>/public_html/classifieds using either an FTP program or the built-in FileManager in cPanel, then install / upload your program into that folder. When you visit http://www.<your-domain-name.com>/classifieds the "index.<php | htm | html>" file of your installed program will run and display the program.
