CSS How to Make a Website Sharing a Website Upload the Website

Re-Upload an edited website?

I followed along and fully uploaded a site using the stock images from the lessons. After revising in Workspaces I re-downloaded my files, re-connected to my host through Cyberduck, and got a very different folder tree- all of the folders have "modified" dates from before the original upload. I don't have a www folder, and I can't find a public_html. It also won't let me drag and drop the project files, saying that I don't have permission to upload the about.html file. Am I missing something?


What does the folder structure look like when you get connected to your host?

Mark, thanks for the reply. My folder tree is listed out as follow:

  • bin
  • chroot
  • dev
  • error_log (file, not folder)
  • etc
  • home
  • lib
  • lib64
  • mysubdir
  • tmp
  • usr
  • var
  • Z

All of the folder sizes are listed as -- and about half I am denied access to. The other half have tons of files that I don't recognize- I was worried about tinkering around since I'm not seeing a www folder. Whatever help you can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! -Adam

it looks like your host service isn't placing your FTP client in your home folder as it should. Try navigating into home and there you will find your username as a folder. Go into that folder and you'll likely find your public_html folder. If that doesn't work, I suggest contacting the support staff at your hosting service.

Thank you for your response, and sorry that I've taken so long checking back!

The "home" folder is one of the ones that I am denied access to at the moment, but I have filed a support ticket with my hosting service. Thanks again for your help! -Adam
