Filesystem Organization
The top-level of your Monkey Business Filesystem is organized into major folders based on file type.
  • bin - system folder
  • documents - for webpages
  • images - for pictures and images
  • includes - system folder
  • install - system folder
  • media - for all file types
  • public - for all file types
  • tools - system folder
  • workdir - system folder
You cannot create, save, or upload files into the top-level of the Filesystem, or any System Folder.
Always upload and save files into the right Folder to avoid unexpected errors and behaviors. For example, webpages must be saved in the documents folder, and pictures should go in the images folder.
