In response to Re: Installing Durock Cement Board in bathroom
: Durock Cement Board has a textured side and a smooth side. I will be laying the cement board over 3/4 inch Tongue and groove plywood sub-floor. Ceramic tile will then be laid over the cement board. Which side of the cement board is laid over the subfloor and which side accepts the ceramic tile?

The ceramic tile is going to be stuck to the Durock and to tile to tile by a "thin set mortar mix. The rough side of the durock helps the thinset to bond to it. The smooth side goes against the wood subfloor, because the durock will be screwed to the subfloor
