I wonder, if any other webdevelopers here have really good system in organizing their stuff. Lik directory names, filenames etc, or if there are any 'conventions' or recommendations. I mean, i have my own system, but it lacks often :D

I think it's generally personal preference, and that works as long as you're consistent...

I try to name folders/directories with a single, short, easy to remember word. Individual file names may be a couple of words, in which case I have two methods (depending on teh situation): either capitalize the second word (like, "empLogin.asp") or use an underscore (like, "post_date"). I'm not exactly consistent... well I am within a site, but not necessarily across sites... :)

As for hierarchy, I try to keep it detailed so that things are well-organized... I think it's better to have too many subfolders than not enough... I could be wrong.

basically my pref is language/usage-type/variant

ie. ASP/Login/testLoginX.asp

the only way i can find my way around (though if some one has a better idea I'm all up for it (old dog/neew tricks).

Generally I'm only using one language on a given project, so I don't need to split by language. But "includes", "static", and "images" are my three regular subfolders for holding all the extra little files... otherwise, it just depends on the project :)

I use different architecture depending on the project. A sample is my JSP projects:

JSP
root
images/
classes/
includes/
html/ # templates
xml/ # optional if I'm creating xml datasources
../ssl # if I have a portion of the site that uses encryption I offset it from the root directory.

Cheers Sam

sorry, i guess i didn't read that right.  above was my personal/preproduction local storage (ie. script library)

as for online, its usually:
site root/ ::htmls
/templates ::html includes like footers
/art-final ::art is local for virgin images (PSDs etc.)
/scripts ::execute only
../language ::in case of multiple langs.
/includes ::execute only; DBConn, etc.
/css ::style sheets, of course
/notes ::useful DW feature in a shop; almost better than REMs
