Your Website's HTML and image files go into the httpdocs folder.

The absolute path (if ever needed) is:

Your Website's CGI scripts (if any) may go into the cgi-bin folder.
PLEASE READ THE "CGI-BIN" ENTRY IN OUR "TIPS AND SUGGESTIONS" SECTION BELOW.
The absolute path is:
In other words, the CGI-BIN folder is outsite the main folder.
PLEASE NOTE: You can execute CGI scripts in any directory, not just the cgi-bin directory !

And the path to sendmail?
