Hi I have already asked this question with the screen-name of tinalouise62 but I cannot log in using that account so I have had to create another. Nancy replied to my question but I do not think I was clear about my issue so I am trying again,
I created a web site in dreamweaver to replace an old one that was running. My brother who has the hosting package said that I needed to create a folder in my root folder 'public_html/new' so that when the files went live he could replace the old site with these in the 'public_html' file - the live site file.
This all went well and the new site is now up. The problem is that I now cannot access the files on the remote server. When I go to the local view I can access the files and make changes and add things. When I go to remote to 'Put' files I only have an empty 'public_html/new' folder because the files have been moved out of it to the live site. I cannot change the name of the folder and I cannot upload files from the remote server because I am stuck with this public_html/ new folder that the public_html does not recognize?
What I need to do is change the file in the remote files to public_html so that dreamweaver can comunicate with it? What can I do? I have managed to get files and put them in the remote files. It seems that the because the live site is now public_html it cannot comunicate with public_html/new. I have tried renaming it but dreamweaver will not let me?
I am slowly going mad. There must be an easy solution to this I have tried everything.
Many thanks in advance
I actually thought that Nancy gave you the correct answer in the previous thread, but let's try again.
In DW, what do you have entered in the Root Directory field of your Remote Site definition?
