I managed to upload the web site via ftp in dreamweaver. The problem I am having is there was an existing site already on the server. I thought when I "put" the files for the new web site it would overwrite the existing files when it "put" the index.html file. All of my files were uploaded, but when I go to the web site url the new site files do not come up, only the old files. If I type the extension of /index.html the new site files come up. Can anyone help me figure out what I am missing? I need my new site files to come up when they type in the url without typing /index.html Thanks.
What's the web address?
Is there more than one index file in the root folder on the server?
e.g. index.htm, index.html, index.php etc
Have you cleared the browser cache? Your browser may be showing you files stored in its memory rather than downloading fresh files from the server.
Although DW should overwrite old files on the server, it's good practice sometimes to consciously delete what you don't want to avoid filename clashes.
Nevermind, I figured it out. The old page was named something bizarre and once I renamed it, it works great. Thanks.
