    Overloaded Server?

    MyNameIsEmmy Level 1
      I have successfully built, previewed and uploaded my index page - http://www.bestfoodinestevan.com, and http://www.bestfoodinestevan.com/tower_cafe.html page.

      or so the FTP says.

      I tested them in the Dreamweaver Browser - they look great and link to each other perfectly.

      Why aren't the index and child page showing on the internet???? I have trouble-shooted the refresh, and cache...I don't know what to do from here. I have contacted my host too.

      Help


      Thank you.

          In the files panel on the right, when you you switch to the "remote" view what do you see? On 90% of servers you have to specify the public directory for your files before uploading. You more than likely uploaded to the wrong folder. Look in the remote view and see if you see something like "public_html" or "www".

            I don't see either public_html or www.?

            Where in the remote folder should I see that. I only see files.

            I see my pages perfectly in preview mode from the remote files. Should I "compare with local files"

            Thank you for your response.

              What is in your remote site definition for FTP Host, and Host Directory?

              When you expand the Files panel, so that you can see remote on the left and
              local on the right, what is the name of the TOPMOST folder on the Remote
              site?

                The TOP folder says:

                /bestfoodinestevan.com/
                and under it says, Tower Project (yellow folders)

                on the local site, the TOP folder says:

                Site - foodsite (C:/.....

                Oh boy, I hope you don't pull out hair over this, but...


                *** But reading through the help files, again, I realized the two sites were not mirror imaged. argh...

                I decided to try defining a new site, and treating my remote files like an outside site. I synchronized them to a brand new local file.

                Both the TOP folders have the same name now. Only the files are inverted, but the exactly the same files...

                eg. In the remote view:

                elements
                flash
                script

                In the local view:

                script
                flash
                elements

                BTW, I still have the previous site, so if you think I should delete either let me know which one I should be working with...and if you have any hair left.

                  Okay,

                  I deleted all the remote files and uploaded new files with a new site I created in the Files Manager.

                  Wait and see. I thought changes to a site were immediate, if you refresh the screen, so I will wait and see.

                    If the files are in the right place the changes are immediate. If you
                    aren't seeing anything yet, then the files aren't in the right place.

                    Are there other folders under Tower Project on the remote site? Are there
                    other folders alongside Tower Project pn the remote site? It may be time
                    for you to speak to your host about where the website's root folder is.

                      I'd bet that that folder is where the web site files need to go.

                        Thank you for the reply,

                        The remote folder looks like this:

                        - /bestfoodinestevan.com/
                        -Tower_Project
                        +elements
                        +flash
                        +script
                        +tower_css
                        +tower_img
                        +tower_source

                        etc. (The plus and minus signs are inside the folders whether they are open or not.)

                        I tried to follow Misk's instructions. I have emailed them, but no response yet.

                        I will go over them again.

                          Make "Tower_Project" the data that you put into the Host directory field in
                          the Remote site definition. Make it the ROOT FOLDER for your Local site.

                            Well, the site is up!

                            I just named all the files the same.

                            Thank you!
