Creating Subdirectories within Your Website

 

You may create subdirectories either with an FTP program or by means of telnet.

First, we recommend you consult our general tutorials on either FTP or telnet, and then return to this page.

 

Creating Subdirectories with WS_FTP

Once you have connected to your site with WS_FTP, click on the "MkDir" button on the right side of the WS_FTP window.  In the box that appears, type the name of the subdirectory you want.  Then click on the "OK" button.

 

Creating Subdirectories with CuteFTP

Once you have connected to your site with CuteFTP, click on "Commands" on the menubar.  Then select "Make new dir".  In the box that appears, type the name of the subdirectory you want.  Then click on the "OK" button.

 

Creating Subdirectories via Telnet

Once you have connected to your site via telnet, type this command:

mkdir name_of_the_subdirectory_you_want

Then hit the <Enter> key on your keyboard.

For example, if you want the subdirectory to be named xyz, you would type:

mkdir xyz

Then you would hit the <Enter> key on your keyboard.
