confusing file structure (2 posts)

    For years I've had all the file for one of my web sites listed directly under "Home." Within that category I have all my page files, along with a Resources folder

    While some remain there, most of my files (Including apparent duplicates of those in "Home") are now listed under public_html. I don't recall adding this new category.

    The problem is that I now appear to have more than one Resources folder, along with a duplicate of another folder in which I have a number of pages. This is the structure I see when I go to the "Recent" tab on the Fetch tool bar. Sorry I can't actually indent to indicate the various:levels:

    HOME/
    (indent level 2) Contacts
    (indent level 2) Public_html.
    (indent level 3) Contacts
    (indent level 4) Contacts
    (indent level 2) provincial website
    (indent level 4) resources for prov 7
    (indent level 3) resources for prov7

    Any suggestions on how I can fix this?

    Hi,

    You can delete duplicate copies of files and folders, but you obviously have to be careful to not delete the ones actually being used by your site. As a test you can rename a file or folder (e.g. add "XXX" to the end of the name) and then check your website to make sure the relevant pages still work. Be sure to toss your web browser cache, so you know you're getting the pages from the server.

    I hope this helps,
