Hi, I am trying to put the google HTML verification file from Google webmaster account for verification of my website. Where should be the file uploaded? Should it go to root folder of server or under specific website root folder? Thanks

Don't touch files, just log in as administrator. Go to menu, on the right side look for <head> click. Activate, and put your HTML verification code there. Click verify in webmaster tools.

Easy, and no editing required :)

good luck.

You're absolutely right. It's better to add the meta tag through the administration than to edit Django templates.

Yes, I exactly did the way you mentioned and it worked. Thanks

You can put your HTML verification file into the templates folder and after that use the Django direct_to_template shortcut: https://docs.djangoproject.com/en/dev/ref/generic-views/#django-views-generic-simple-direct-to-template

However, this is a bit more complex and I would suggest using HTML Meta tag to do the Google Verification. This is much easier and you'll just have to edit the base_content.html file.
