Like on 8, when you use the ls command and get the shtml files, how do you know what directory those files are in? And in 9, how do you know how high you are supposed to transverse if you don't know where you are starting (i did it by trial and error)? Thanks for the help.

It is easy, and defience gives a good hint when he mentions how useful it would be if you knew where the file was located (which obviously, if you read the description in basis9, you do). The best advice I could give is not to look up directory transversal, because you will only get lost in a sea of possible symbol combinations that are not necessarry to complete the challenge. I would almost go as far as saying forget about what you learned about directory transversal in mission 8, because this one is much less complecated, and just try and get to the file you want using the unix commands you learned from lesson 8, and the common sense approach you would use to get to any file you would want to open. Remember, you already know the pathway......
