In need of help with FTP please!

8 replies
I have created a website for myself ( I spent a week just figuring the design part out) but now I can't get my file to load correctly onto my site. I am using filezilla.
I have never used an ftp before plus I have never created a website (other than wp) so I am completely lost.
Please let me know if you can help!!

Thanks so much!!

    Who is your hosting account with? If it is someone like Hostgator or Hostmonster they come with cPanel (hosting control panel). In there is a File Manager that makes uploading your website files a piece of cake.

      I actually use a friends hosting which is Hostpossum for this site. Very similar to hostgator

    Great insight @Kim, glad that you had a fix.

    Don't feel bad, I just did that today and I should know better. I could not get a page to load on a test directory.

    I thought I changed the name to index.html, when in fact is was test.html. I was even having a few friends try it.

    when I finally went in and looked at the page for the 10th time. I saw what was needed. My Bad.
