Directory - The directory where SMF is installed From Online Manual
FTP usually shows the complete path of where the SMF files are located on the server. This path may be used in many places within the administration panel. There are differences from one host to another though, so you need to ask your host to provide you with this information.
Some examples of SMF directory and FTP path to SMF:
|Control Panel||Server Settings SMF directory||FTP server||FTP Local path to SMF|
|Plesk (in forum subdirectory of domain)||/home/vhosts/domain.com/httpdocs/forum||domain.com||httpdocs/forum|
|Plesk (in main directory of subdomain sdn)||/home/vhosts/domain.com/subdomains/sdn/httpdocs sdn.domain.com||httpdocs|
|cPanel (in forum subdirectory of domain)||/home/<username>/public_html/forum||domain.com||public_html/forum|
|cPanel (in main directory of subdomain sdn)||/home/<username>/public_html/sdn||sdn.domain.com||public_html/sdn|
