Hi I have gone and got my self a new computer I put Dreamweaver program on it everything great until I transfer my Web site all seamed to be OK until I had a look at it on on my browser, the site I have is a PHP site but there is an index.html file that is used by an application I have on there called Highslide, is as not been a problem until now but when the site opens it opens on this page, and as you can see on the link is not really a page,
http://www.qualitycarpets.net even if I put (/index.php) at the end it still don't go to the page. Can any one help me please, I'm realy desperate with this one, Thanks Jeff
None of your pages are working even with direct links
Are you sure they are all in proper folder in your server?
You may have a problem with your hosting hardware, although your images folder and files are all in place
I would like to join with Ken. If I try this link (e.g.) http://www.qualitycarpets.net/highslide/index.html I get a HTTP 404 (Not found). Maybe you should try another FTP program like FileZilla.
On the other hand, I suggest that you should consider about making a logical structure of your website. E.g. which of your index.html/php files is the one from where you want to start your website (the entry)?
No offense! And Good luck!
Hi Nancy this is probably where the problem stems from, the problem is the changeover on my computer was done by the I. T. guy, and I’m not sure what he’s done and he’s ran away from it, not answering the phone that sort of thing, I’ve printed off the screen shot , it’s getting late here so I’m going to leave it for today and have another look in the morning, thanks for your help, I’ll speak tomorrow. Thanks Jeff
Hi I’ve been on to Easily my domain provider to day, the chap looked at the site and changed the index file to html and the page opened and that is how it is at the moment, obviously it’s not picking up any of the includes, he said for some reason not known to him Dreamweaver is not recognising it as an PHP site, but you can at least get on to the page now. Hope you can help, Thanks Jeff
Check the HTACCESS file to see if php hs been turned off
Dreamweaver has nothing to do with PHP being recognized on the webserver.
Changing the index from .php to .html is not the correct solution. Something is fouled up in the server settings at minimum.
Do this and see if php is running on the server...
Hi I done that and this is all I get. Jon

Hi Ken I can view the remote server through Dreamweaver, I’ve look for an htaccess file can’t see one, but I have another site link below, and I can’t find this file in there either, but that don’t mean it’s not there I’m preferably not looking in the right place, this site is built similar to the quality carpets one (also PHP), and it is hosted on Easily same as the other one, I moved it to this computer in the same way as the other and this one is working OK
if this website is the correct one http://www.thecarpetandflooringconsultant.co.uk/, so I can see your index.html as well in my IE10 as in my DW-live view (by using your source code) in a good order.
Hi Ken I’ve just looked at both sites in File Zilla, the .htaccess is present in the consultant site but not in the quality carpets site (I don’t know what happen to it), so that must be the problem, I just need to know how to fix it now. Jeff
Jeff & Hans -
How did we get back to highslide again?
Download a copy of .htaccess and post the contents here.
All tests have shown that whatever server Easily has the .net site on will not process PHP pages (possibly due to the contents of the htaccess file)
I’m at a bit of a loss here, I thought we got past the highslide thing and moved on, I have taken the highslide off the site now, I don’t think I needed it any way, my question was, where do I get an .htaccess file and how do I install it. Thanks Jeff

You said you found it with Filezilla. Download it to your desktop. open it in a text editor, copy iy and paste in a post here. I'd like to ar least see what's in it before putting it on the non-working server.
