How to ensure your website can see files

It seems silly, but I’ve seen co-workers load up a website for the first time and the site cannot located certain pages even though they are available in the file system.

This can throw you off a bit, especially when other developers have no problems. Often the first thoughts are around project settings, etc.

I advise that you first check that there are sufficient permissions on folder where the website’s files are stored. If you’re in a dev environment, maybe open it up to everyone and then whittle it down to a safe restriction.

Until next time!
