Web Wiz - Solar Powered Eco Web Hosting

File System Understanding the File System

Each domain name hosted by Web Wiz will have a 'home directory' named after the primary domain name for the website (eg. example.com). From this directory you can store your websites pages, scripts, applications, databases, etc. You will also have access to your sites raw log files.

After logging into your home directory, using FTP, you will see the following folders: -


This folder is the root of your website, you should place inside it all your web pages, application files and folders, scripts and images that make up your website.

Please note; If you are uploading a ASP.NET Core application using FTP it contains a sub folder also named 'wwwroot' that would be uploaded inside the websites existing 'wwwroot' folder.


The web server and thus your ASP.NET, PHP, Classic ASP, applications have full access to this folder, however the folder is not directly accessible by your website visitors. It is therefore a good place to store any Microsoft Access databases or data files so they can not be downloaded by a hacker but can be accessed by applications or scripts running on your website.


This folder contains the raw log files for your site from the last 7 days. You should NOT delete this folder as it is required by the web server in order for your site to run.
