Adding a new web space

Post by saas » Thu Dec 10, 2009 11:20 am

I want to create a new webspace, I tried with both IE8 and firefox, when click on create new webspace the page reloads but nothing happens. Then no webspace is listed in my (webspace configuration) panel.
Any idea what might be wrong?
By the way, I can see my old webspace credentials. Am I suppose to delete them or do something else before I create a new webspace?

You can only have one free website, so if you have one already you will have to cancel it first. You reserve space at the User Facility; select Web Space Configuration in the sidebar. You will be supplied with an ftp password for uploading to the site.

You cannot create a site directly from a browser (except via the user facility), and it is a very awkward way to upload. Am I misunderstanding what happens at this step?

Use a specialist FTP client application to avoid hassles. Exetel has some Windows software recommendations in the user facility to communicate successfully with the Linux web server from your Windows computer.
