How to creat and Absolute path? Question from a complete newbie (5 posts)

    Hi guys,
    IT and web stuff is not what I am familiar with. Just trying to have my blog running smoothly. To prove how bad I am (:)) I can just say that I couldn't even find the version of WP that I'm using now...

    So the question is:
    cart66 (ecommerce) requires an absolute path to the product folder. Here's what they say:
    Enter the absolute path to where you want to store your digital products. We suggest you choose a folder that is not web accessible. To help you figure out the path to your digital products folder, this is the absolute path to the page you are viewing now.
    Please note you should NOT enter a web url starting with http:// Your filesystem path will start with just a /

    So I don't understand where should I create this bloody folder. Literally - where do I go to create it and how do I upload the files?
    These "formulas" freak me out, I don't understand them.

    What I tried was creating a product folder on ftp of another website of mine. I did well BUT cart 66 didn't recognise it.
    I googled "absolute path" but again - it was all these formulas to be put somewhere... I'm scared to do that.

    Here's my blog: http://www.taniapoli.com

    Please help! Just explain it as if I was a 3 year old child. I appreciate your help.

    Looks like cart66 has support forums and tutorials on their site -- perhaps start there for help.
