I am following the Head First book on PHP/MySQL and ran into a question on setting up folders for uploading images to the web to be used in a database application. The book states, "Use an FTP program to access the file system of your web site and create the images folder beneath the web folder of the application.
- Why do I need to use FTP when I can just go into the control panel and create the images folder and upload my images using the file upload process?
- The files currently upload to the public_html folder. So when the book says create the images folder beneath the web folder does that mean as a subdirectory inside the public_html folder or inside the www folder?
- Or does it mean I just create the images folder at the same level?
Thanks in advance for your kind help!
