    HELLO. I have successfully uploaded documents to my webspace, but today when i connect NO folders appear in the fetch display pane and when i click on some recent items i get the following message:

    'fetch could not open the folder "/htdocs/cgi-bin" because the FTP server says that the requested item was not a folder or could not be accessed. If you enter a folder name or URL, check that it is correct. Server responded: 'Can't change directory to ... No such file or directory.'

    Thanks for any help, and apologies if i am making a basic error.

    Could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu and post the contents of that window after you see a problem?

    Thanks,

    I think you should talk to the server administrator. The welcome message says that your web files should go in the htdocs folder, but there's no such folder there now.

    Thanks,
