Sorry. I have to admit I went through quite some trial and error first myself.
And I’m not particularly good at reading manuals and instructions. Only if everything else fails….

You have to be able to communicate with your website. I am using an FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client to accomplish this, an older version of WS_FTP. If you don’t have something like this, there seem to be some free downloads available. I didn’t get into it too far, but start by checking here
Hope this helps.
Edit: If your website is with your ISP, they might have the client for you, too.

”Once you have the client, I’m sure you can find your way through the instructions and help files. ”
Sure. Right. Actually I’ve been fiddling with the same kind of project since yesterday, using Fetch for Mac. I keep missing one critical step, and my kid is gonna quit speaking to me if I don’t get this right pretty soon! 🙂 Good luck, Roger!

The manuals and instructions don’t seem to be doing me much good. I burrowed down in the administrative area of the site and see where my upload “uploaded”, but I can’t find it! Grrr. And all of this after I found I had no DSL service this morning after the ISP did an upgrade sometime in the middle of the night. I should have known better than to try working on a website after spending a half hour getting the internet connection operating again! But some people just never learn. Oh, my.

Tomorrow will be a better day! 🙂
Beth haney 2007-11-25 13:39:11
Hmmm. I think I said that to myself yesterday when I couldn’t get it uploaded. But thanks for your reassurance. 🙂

My 2 cents worth…..
Getting the FTP client and getting it set up is one thing. Usually
not to difficult but it seems like my different sites and/or ISP’s do
it just enough differently that you can’t write any hard and fast
Before I got my own domain and was using web space offered by
BellSouth, I had to learn how they wanted it set up. Somewhere in
their on-line docs I found it.
The hardest part for me was remembering what folder contained all of
the web page files. My current web host uses a folder called HTDOCS.
Another web page host that I use has a folder called HTML. Once you
locate that, it starts to get a bit easier.
I’m currently using SmartFTP: http://www.smartftp.com/. I also use
the FTP client built into GoLive 6.0.

I did it!!! I knew I was only missing one teensy piece. After I had the folder in Fetch, I needed to drag it into an html folder that was sitting there. (I kinda wondered what that thing was for!) There was probably another way to do it, but at least I finally got a test batch posted, and Jodi could see the racoon from 3,000 miles away!

It’s a start….at least folks don’t get a”Web Page not Found”

Oops, forgot to mention Transmit, another popular shareware ftp client.
