    Pages won't "put" after catastrophic computer failure

    Kellysingleton

      First let me start by saying, I am self taught in DW (CS3) via Adobe Dreamweaver tutorial and am still learning this program.

       

      My computer crashed in early February. After a month of trying to figure out how to get my website reloaded with the correct pw's to the remote site, I finally was able to bring my htdocs folder into DW (CS3). I made changes and previewed in all browsers. Everything looked fine. I used the "put" button as I always did before, and thought everything was fine. I went to my website the other day and noticed it was still in the same stage that it was in when the computer crashed originally and none of my changes apparently made it to the remote server or the web (whatever the correct terminology is). Again, when I preview, everything looks correct.

       

      The pages won't load, but I have no problems getting individual pdf's to load. I have not tried individual images.

       

      So I tried again and this time I saved the log (see below). I was wondering if anyone can view the log and decipher for me what is wrong?

      I was instructed to leave the section in "manage sites" entitled "what folder do you want to store your files in" = blank. Is this correct?

      Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Thank you very much

          No, this is not correct, Dw needs to know the folder that it should upload the files to, with the settings as they are you are trying to upload the files to 'somewhere', (probably the site root) but these files will not be viewable by the public.

           

          The folder can have a number of names, maybe Public_html/ or ht_docs/. You will have to look at your server file structure for the folder, (other forum users may suggest other locations) and insert that into the field for the folder to upload the files to.

            Thank you, this worked. The pages load now, but my new images wont load. When I try to "put" my gif files in this is the error I receive:

            I even tried to go to the side by side screen and highlighted the Announce35.gif that I just created and put on my master template and on the site side highlighted the images folder and I still get the error..Is this connected to my other problem listed above? The images folder is stored in the htdocs folder.
