Problems using Cyberduck

Maybe I'm doing this all wrong, but for some reason I can't use Cyberduck to upload my new site. If anyone can help me with this, I'd be most grateful.

Thanks

Sean

From the Transfer dialogue box, I uploaded the files and clicked the Open button in the top right corner and my About page came up. Does this mean my site is now live?

It sounds like you may have done it. Try going to the URL to the web address where you are hosting the files and see if it pulls up. Or after you clicked the Open button, in the Transfer dialogue box, and the page opened in your browser.... you should be able to look at the URL and see where the file is opening from. If it's opening from your personal computer it will have a typical file path to where the files are on your computer.

Hi Austin. How's it going? Thanks for responding. I noticed there was a file path of the sort you described. The odd thing is that when I type in my website's URL, I get rerouted to the web host. Is that supposed to happen?

It's going well thanks- How are you Sean? I'm happy to respond and hope I can help. When it redirects to the host what does it display? For example does it show a placeholder like "this website is no longer available" or "under construction"? Could you post the web address so I could have a look? Or if you're not comfortable with posting it publicly could you send a link to me at woeccedev@gmail.com?
