    Hi, when I go to my domain:

    http://www.zerosmf.com, it shows this congratulations page.

    Even when I go to http://www.zerosmf.com/index.php, I get the same thing. What's up with this?

    Make sure you uploaded your site files to the correct web folder. check with your host to see which one you should be uploading to, usually "Public_html" or "webdocs" or something similar. also make sure you delete the hosts Default index.html file, as I think the HTML takes priority over php. I could be wrong though.

    Hope that helps :)

    Yeah, just upload your files right under the domain name..example: Just upload your files into the "/public_html" root, then if you want to create separate pages, just create another folder "The page name" under the "/public_html" and place your files for that particular page in that folder.

    If you need anymore help just ask me.

    OK, thanks for the quick help, but all the files are in public_html, and still...still...it doesn't work.

    And the weirder part when I type in http://www.zerosmf.com/index.php :

    How long ago did you change your name servers? they can take sometimes take 24-48 hours to update web wide. if you just added, or changed them, be patient.

    The nameservers look ok and the site is coming up for me there are just no files, just shows your cgi bin. So its working, you just need to upload your files in the correct directory. Did you find the public_html directory?

    there is no need for a screenshot, you only need to upload the to the public_html folder as mentioned
    cpanel->file manager-> here you select document root->ok->new browser window shows up and you just hit the upload button and do your thing
