    I made some minor changes to afew pages on my website (www.harvestmoonfarmstudio.com), then re-uploaded the pages. I uploaded to the public folder, but all the pages I uploaded (including the index page) are now showing up on the web only as pages of code. What did I do wrong?

    The index page appears to be the contents of an application file. That suggests that either you accidentally uploaded the wrong file, or else your disk is corrupted and what looks like "index.html" actually has the contents of a different file. I would recommend running Disk First Aid (or Disk Utility on OS X) and taking a look at the index.html file on your disk to make sure its contents are what they should be (and that its size isn't ridiculous).

    Thanks,

    I can't figure it out. Everything looks normal on my end. If I just completely delete the index page, create a completely new one and upload the new one will that help?

    Another question. Pair.com says that files need to be uploaded as ASCII. When I use Fetch to "put file" if I leave the settings on automatic is uploads as "Macbinary". Should I be changing the setting to text?

    So Disk First Aid does not show a problem?

    If you select the index.html file in the Finder and choose Get Info from the File menu what size does it show?

    Creating a new index.html file and uploading it might help.

    Thanks,

    My disk first aid doesn't seem to have those options. When I open it, all I get is my hard drive and the option to either verify or repair. Nowhere to put in any other file names. Pagemill tells me thatindex.html is 8k, and when I do a search for the file on my desktop it also says the file is 8k.
    I completely deleted my old index.html page (and the other 3 pages I changed in the last 3 days) and redid them totally from scratch. They still uploaded as those huge files.

    The Get Info command is in the Finder, not in Disk First Aid.

    Are you dragging the index.html file to the Fetch window to upload, or using the "Put Files..." button in Fetch?

    hmoonf,

    First thing i would check is whether you uploaded it as ASCII.

    If that's not the problem, it may the file itself was saved in something other than a plain text format or was compiled in some way.
