The Directory Structure

The directory structure is a hierarchical organiztion of items. In this structure, first there is top level, than there is a second level, than third level and so on. You are familiar with the directory structure found in the operating systems.


Consider Windows operating system, first there is a Mycomputer icon, when you open it, it shows you disk drives ,after you select a drive it shows you file folders, than more folder and files and so on.

Now, consider an example of a website that has information about vehicles. If the directory structure is applied to this website, it will result in the first level being vehicles, second cars, motorbikes, trucks, third level under car can be sedans, coupe, mini-vans etc. As shown in the chart,
