So you log in and go to your Pan webspace file manager only to discover that your files appear to have gone missing, and you’re wondering what happened to them and why the manager looks a little strange. Read on and find out what’s up with your file manager.
Now webspace is acquired per character rather than one for each pseudonym, that way you can keep files separated for different characters to help keep organized or maintain some additional privacy as each webspace will have a different url which matches the character name its for.
Another neat perk is that you can also create sub folders, another great way to keep your files in order. (Please note that at this time folders can be created but can not yet be deleted!)
But what does this mean for your old file manager and webspace?
This upgrade was on October 18th, 2008 and affected all preexisting file managers / webspaces. Don’t panic, it doesn’t mean your files are gone! Because webspace is now attached directly to a character when purchased any webspace created prior October 18th, 2008 isn’t automatically affiliated with a specific character and must be assigned.
In order to have webspace you created prior to October 18th, 2008 assigned leave a note with Pandemonium and let him know which character you’d like to have your webspace applied to. He’ll link the webspace to the character and voila! There’s all your files again and you can now access them in the spiffy new system.
The basic base URL for existing webspaces will not change, even after they are assigned to a character, but any space bought from here on out will be created with the character name as the root directory. So WebMistress’ webspace is www.panhistoria.com/www/WebMistress and Hatshepsut's webspace is www.panhistoria.com/www/Hatshepsut where as my original file manager now assigned to a different character may not match the host character I chose for it.
