Sorry the screen cap is of no help. I've gotta get to work, but I did download FileZilla and will play around with it this afternoon/evening, and post then with my findings. I'll also try to do another screen cap as you suggested then, too.

Thanks again!

Hi, ssone!

Well, I had a few minutes at lunch to try FileZilla. I really need to take the time to read thru the how-to, etc, but I did try to upload index.html, and here's what happened:

the file did transfer--that is, it's now listed under the the "Remote Site" directory, along with all the other files. However, the file size--which should be "3KB" according to my directory shows "???" in the Remote Site directory, and the date has "???" as well.

Also, at the bottom, where it shows files transferred, under "Status," it says "critical transfer error."

So I need to do a little 'vestigating here, but I thought I'd post this now, in case anything about this jumped out at you.

Thanks!

:tazz: ;) ;)

m yeah I've gotten those quite a few times.

Umm..couple questions
(1) is there a "www" folder?

(2) is there a "cgi-bin" folder?


If the first one or both of those are no, than can you attach the file so I can see if its the file's problem?

If there is a "www" (and there may be a "cgi-bin") folder, make sure you are uploading the files IN that folder. If you are, than same thing, could you send me the file in a PM, e-mail, or just attach it in a post.

Nope, there's no "www" or "cgi-bin" folder anywhere. You're talking about the Remote Site directory, right? All that's in that directory are:

folder icon followed by 2 dots and no other information listed after it
folder titled "photos" that is empty
all my files

I'm attaching the index.html file.

Attached File  index.html   3.14KB   66 downloads

Thanks!

You new page may be larger than the site allows. Many sites have size limits based on file type. Some sites only allow a certain number of links on a page. I'd say read your FAQ and TOS for the site to make sure you are compliant. And these things change you know. Also, your index page should always be in your root directory. In fact, if you aren't using your root directory you should always put a "dummy" index in it so that the default view won't allow people to access your files, which is what happened here.

First of all, the file is a lot less kb than the pics she has on there, second..we've discussed where the index should be, and putting it in a different directory wouldnt prevent it from uploading, third, yes that is what happened, and thats what were trying to do here, upload an index.html file, but were trouble shooting some problems... :tazz:

Ummm...OK. I'm an idiot. Should've contacted my ISP first thing. Turns out I exceeded my bandwidth and they just compressed all the files into an index.

Well, it's an honest mistake. This wasn't an issue at all until I updated/uploaded my index.html file, and that wasn't any bigger than it had been.

Oh, well! Thanks again SO MUCH for your help.

Some sites may only let you put up a 20kb HTML but you can upload a 100kb JPEG.

definitely not many, but that's why I PMed her for something so I could figure out anything like that...there are tons of different things that could have been wrong, but she contacted her host and it was bandwidth..
