What are the extra directories for on my ftp site? Can I delete them?
When you go into your web space area via FTP, you may find a file and a directory
already there. One file, the index.htm or index.html file is there
as a placeholder for people who visit your page. You may delete this file and
replace it with your own index.htm or index.html file for your web page. Note
that for your web space to display to your visitors properly, the start page of
your web site must be named index.htm or index.html
You probably will also see another directory called logs in your FTP area.
This you do not want to delete. This is where your site logs are. Please

If you FTP into your CGI server you'll may see two directories: logs
and cgi-bin. The logs directory you do not want to delete.
The logs directory is a log of your usage of the CGI area. The cgi-bin
can be deleted if you feel you will have no use for it. This directory is where
you could put come of your cgi scripts. However, CGI scripts can work in any
subdirectory or the root directory of your CGI server.
