uploading album to root to bypass profile page

Hello,

I'd like to use jalbum.net to upload a single album so that I may point my custom domain to it. I followed what instructions I could find and, using an FTP client, uploaded the album to my root: rogerbeye.jalbum.net. I think I might be missing something though as the files are in the right place, I think, but when I go to rogerbeye.jalbum.net it doesn't show my album, it's still shows my profile page.

Thanks for your help.

Roger

When using jAlbum hosting you can't overwrite the profile page if you enter rogerbeye.jalbum.net in your browser. For visitors to go directly to your album they would need to enter your own domain name.

As others have stated here, you can't access the album in the root without also writing "index.html" if you use your rogerbeye.jalbum.net domain. But you can if you set up a custom domain properly.

I see that you have tied rogerbeye.com and www.rogerbeye.com to your profile, but there are no DNS entries for those domains, so you need to do some configuring of your DNS to make it work.
