hello , im editing (home.html) in my (public_html) folder but when i refresh the website it doesnt change
and when i upload files there:
and in my web
it doesnt direct me to it .. so where is my web root directory?
i believe i ve found the root dir for my web ... using grep on ssh terminal
how ever i still have questions :
1. how did it move to /usr/local/apache/htdocs ..shouldnt it be by default in ~/public_html ???
2. how to access it through terminal or cpanel ? as its owned by root now .. i dont have write permissions ..
Greetings @hsn93 ,
Domains are my primary area of expertise, but I know you are seeking a quick answer, so here goes...it would seem to me that the files are going to write based on where you are located within the hosting - local, public, root.
Do you not have root permissions on your hosting plan? Without account access I don't know what type of hosting you have, but either one of the following or Support / Hosting Support may be able to assist you.
I hope that provides some guidance,

I'm having the same problem with my hosting. the files that shows online are in /usr/local/apache/htdocs instead of the ...../public_html
am I missing something?
