sounds like an incorrect path. Could you post what you are using for the
path and for the URL in the site definition?

404 means file does not exist.
403 means forbidden. Often it results from not having a "default" homepage
file like index.html and directory browsing is disabled.
The files are not uploaded to the correct directory on the server, or there
isn't a file with a "default" filename such as index.html
1-What is the filename of the "homepage" of the site?
98% of the time, it should be lowercase index.htm or index.html or similar.
If you need to rename the filename of the homepage, use the dw Files panel,
right-click on the homepage and pick "rename" and change it. Then upload the
2-When you look in the dw Files panel at the remote, are there folders there
you didn't create with names similar to www or htdocs or public_html?
AND the old site files are inside that folder?
If yes, put that folder name into the "host directory" line in the remote
server info of this site definition, then connect again and upload the

The file name on the computer starts with a capital letter (Musas). Would that affect the outcome?
The files of the directory are all lower case and index.html exists as the opening page.
sorry but what exactly would you like me to post?

no- the local folder name wouldn't be a problem.

To clarify- i'm guessing this is a problem in FTP moving files to the proper
place on the remote server.
Check your host's FAQ/Support pages for information.

I know what might be the problem: In the site list are three files: 2 of a previous website, whereby one starts with http://, so
If I put the files I put them all to the remote of site1, which means that site files with the same name end up interfering with site1. So, e.g., the file contact.html exists both, for site 1 and site 2 and putting the files of site 2 to the remote ends up overwriting the contact.html for site 1 and I end up with wrong contact page on website 1.
How do I establish a separate remote site for site 2?
Sorry I meant the file names are ftp://site1
site 1 and site2
I've GOT it!!!
OH thank god!!! And thank you all sooooo much for the support!
The files weren't put into the folder on the remote site, they were put onto the remote site and I assumed they'd automatically go into the folder but they of course didn't.
But its finished now and the site is up.
Thank you so much
It was not the problem of Links can u give any other solution which is possible to erase in this situation
