Sorry, I'm new to Webfaction. I would like to ask that how does webfaction access my files. So I've created a new database assuming the name to be "newdata".

I used Filezilla to FTP into my domain and copied the "/webapps/htdocs/index.html" file, rename it to "new.html", and upload to "/webapps/newdata/new.html".

However, I tried to type my domain with index.html, it loads perfectly fine. While I change to new.html, it shows me 404 Error.

I tried to copy the "new.html" into "/webapps/htdocs/new.html", and type the URL on my browser. The webpage loads perfectly fine.

I'm doing this because I want to upload a PHP file for my project. I've created a new PHP application too, and it can be seen on Filezilla when FTP access. I've read tutorials on this, but no idea why it does not appear for mine.

It sounds like you have not added a website for "newdata" to be viewed. you would either need to edit your existing website and add "newdata" at another url or add a completely new website to host that application.
