My first webpage is not displaying properly (index of/)


After uploading my first website, the only thing the site displays, is the "Index of/" thingy. Going straight to "domain.tld/index.html" gives me a 404. I should mention, that I Might have slightly deleted all the default folders and files in my server (might be an issue). I still put the site in a folder named "www".

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Just curious, are you using cPanel? to upload your site?

If so you need to ensure that you are uploading your site files into the folder entitled public_html no need to stress it took me awhile to get the hang of it when uploading my first site.

Hopefully this helps.
