      Well
      I went all the way back to the full unix dir name with and without the .. in front of the /www/website/etc
      and it didn't work.. I have written the web host for more help
      is there a unix command to go with it?

      Uh, -e is using the unix path, not a URL path. I highly doubt
      that alongside "/bin" and "/lib" and "/man" and "/dev" on your system,
      you also have "/mysticadventures", and if you do, God Help You.

      You need to replace that with the Unix path to the file, not the
      web URL path.
