    Contribute error: shared preferences file can't be found

    Ferdinand Hascha
      I am using Contribute 3 (from Macromedia Studio 8) on a Mac (Mac OS X 10.5).

      I have a connection to a server, and right now I have one draft webpage. I finished editing it and wanted to publish it, but when I did so, an error message appeared: Contribute can't find the file with the shared preferences. To recreate it, the administrator must administer the website again. (translated from German, not exact).

      So I think it is telling me, as soon as I reconnect again as an admin, this file will be recreated. But I am an admin!
      If I click "connect" again anyway, it appears that the draft webpage is loading again, but then it again says "connect" - instead of "publish". So there is no way of publishing this draft webpage. I also cannot download and edit any webpage.

      What can I do?

      Thanks for the help!
