you need to be running a webserver. The directories you ask about look like apache directories where you'd put your PHP / HTML.


I think you're going to spend some time reading the knowledge base and all the documentation you can find. You're going to need some basic web knowledge to get osC up and running. If you want to run your own server you're going to need a lot more than that.


good luck with it. :) Make some of your own luck though, read and plan before pushing on too far
