    Hi,

    If you still have copies of the files on your Macintosh, you can just upload them again to the server to replace the ones you deleted.

    If you do not have copies of the files on your Macintosh, you should contact your hosting provider or server administrator to see if you can get your files restored from a backup.

    As a last resort, you might want to try searching for your website in Google, and clicking on the "cached" link, which may show you your webpages, and then you can use "Save As" in your webbrowser to make local copies of them.

    Best,

    Thanks... I figured out whats wrong...
    I lost the scripts/permissions needed for the site.
    NOW, all i have is the design/web files uploaded into the site. It says:

    Access forbidden

    You do not have permission to access the requested directory. There is either no index document or the directory is read-protected.
    Click here to notify the Webmaster.
    Error 403

    Hi,

    Sorry for the delay in replying.

    Those are questions that you should ask your hosting service or Internet provider, since they are most likely specific to your web server, and they should be able to help you better than we can.

    Thanks,
