    Default why would you...

    ...keep all your files for a website in the root directory? i bought a ecommerce solution called YourVirtualStore and they have nearly everything in the root directory (i&#039;d guess around 150 files). They make no use of the global.asa file (which I think might be because some web hosting companies charge extra to allow usage of a .asa file so maybe they&#039;re trying to accomodate customers in that type of situation?). <BR>The code is very well organized despite not having an elaborate directory structure. This is because of the tight use of naming conventions to separate pages into logical groups. I should mention that they do have folders for images and style sheets, and they also have a folder for the access database and another one for all admin related pages.<BR><BR>I realize that there&#039;s no right way of doing things sometimes, just various preferrences. That may be all this is, but I wonder if there is a practical reason why they might be doing this.<BR><BR>Any ideas?
