    I am trying to do two different websites I am trying to use fetch to put files on both sites. However, when I connect (no problems there) it updates both sites with the same information. i.e. when I miror the file (using iweb) to site A it loads it to site B. When I try to load site B it loads B and changes A to the same

    Hi,

    We need some more information to help figure out the problem.

    To have two different websites, you usually need to use two different accounts on the same server, or at the very least, two different folders in the same account.

    Are you trying to create two different websites that each have a separate address and hostname?

    Or are you creating two different sites in iWeb, and uploading them to the same server?

    Thanks,

    I have one hosting account with godaddy. Each website has its own address and hostname. I am also creating two diffrent websites with iweb.

    Hi,

    In that case, you probably need to use different connection information for each site when you connect with Fetch; when you connect to Site A, do you connect with the information for Site A, and for Site B, connect with the information for Site B?

    Also, when you create two sites with iWeb, and then use the Publish to a Folder command, it creates two folders, one for each site, but one overall index.html file (home page), and that index file usually only refers to one of the sites. The true index.html for each site is inside that site's folders. So, for instance, when Publish to a Folder from iWeb to a folder named "MyWebPages" you will end up with something like:

    MyWebPages (folder)
    Site A (folder)
    index.html
    Site B (folder)

    Do not upload (or mirror) the MyWebPages folder. You should upload (mirror) the contents of the Site A folder to Site A's address; and the contents of the Site B folder to Site B's address.

    Does this help?

    Thanks,
