How does someone brand new to web development, with cpanel servers & domains to work with, simply set-up each folder structure in the cpanel database. What files and folders are needed and what can be deleted (files such as .htaccess, etc & folders such as scripts or css with files in it.)
There are usually documentations that you can access from your hosting provider about this.
- You can research what .htaccess does and how to manipulate it.
- You can research where you need to put ‘your folder/files’ (index.htm), etc. Although good documentation for question 1, will probably tell you what you need to do for question 2.
