Hello,

I have already build a website and I only need to upload it to my url: http://www.grupofdi.com

I am using a mac server. First I thought I was supposed to paste the website files to /Library/Webserver/Documents. By doing this I am now able to see the website if I type localhost on Mozilla but if I go to my webpage I will see the same Apache information.

This message can be currently read in the website:

If you are the website administrator:

You may now add content to the directory /var/www/html/. Note that until you do so, people visiting your website will see this page and not your content. To prevent this page from ever being used, follow the instructions in the file /etc/httpd/conf.d/welcome.conf.

I guess I should now add content to that directory but I dont even know how to find it using a mac. I am kind of a noob with mac to and I guess this is a easy question I just need some help to get going here.

Thanks for you help!

k well my advice would be to buy some sort of control panel (if it was not already included)

here is a good article to read.
http://www.ahfb2000.com/webmaster_help_ ... php?t=4928
it explains what is the difference between hosting plans.

I currently have a one year license for Direct Admin (control panel)
this "contorl panel" lets me create email accounts, ftp accounts, sub accounts (im guessing thats a reseller?), manage my mysql databases, forward and create sub-domains. Without this control panel I would have had to use an ssh client like Putty (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PuTTY) to create all this stuff that I just mentioned (I would have had to use linux code). Im not sure how it works for mac, but I would try reading a lot and maybe joining a forum dedicated to mac hosting. I hope this helps you out in understanding the fundamentals.
good luck! (=
