Uploading a web site using the web browser

Post by neilv » Sun Oct 19, 2008 2:51 pm

As I will be travelling I would really like to keep uploading to my web site at exetel to simple. After my discussion a couple of weeks ago I thought the problem I was having was due to the full stop in my site name neil.vincent, so I removed that web name from exetel and created a new one named mexico. I have uploaded the site using Coffee Cup but each time I go to upload using IE I get past the pop up which asks for my password, after a short wait a pop up tells me my permissions are wrong.

Any thoughts?

Thankyou

Neil

We talked about the cave site last time. It is possible, but do you really have to use IE? If you get a purpose-made ftp client, as suggested then by Gidget, your problems will probably disappear.

If you can't read the files on the site, check that their permissions are set to (Octal) 705. An ftp client can do this.

The problem with an ftp program is that many internet cafe's will not allow you to instal programs. I want something that will be on every computer in the cafes I visit, IE will be. I know IE doesn't have all the fancy things but if it will upload a simple web site that that is all I need. Exetel has a procedure for doing it but it doesn't work. What am I doing wrong?

What I suggested last time was to use Core FTP on a flash/USB drive, as described here

You don't need to install any programs on internet cafe computers that way.

Hi Gidget

I tried Core FTP at an Internet cafe today and it all worked as you said.
So it appears that I will be able to do what I want when overseas.

Thankyou

Hi Neil

That's great news :D Now you can concentrate on enjoying yourself while you are away, rather than stressing about how to upload to your web site :lol:

Enjoy!
