Failure to create visible (in Safari) new folder (5 posts)

    using fetch's command "new folder" in htdocs and naming it as requested, it appears. BUT when using Safari, Error 403 displayed -- even after copying in to the new folder an adjacent .htaccess file, which also appears.

    I done this much in the past, but my Alzheimers has evidently progressed.

    You may need to put an index.html file in the new folder in order to view its URL in Safari. Does that help?

    Thanks,

    But none of my other folders have an index.html file in them.
    The only index file I have is in htdocs. (index.html) It's the "home page".
    Perhaps the .htaccess file is incorrect? It's in all the other folders.

    bc thinks maybe he should be asking Esosoft, the host

    Yes, it may be a good idea to ask Esosoft. My other thought would be to use the Get Info command in Fetch to compare the permissions for this new folder with the permissions of other folders that are working correctly.

    Thanks,

    Good Idea, unfortunately I'd already done that, and found all 755.

    Esosoft next.

    Thanks.
