STOU command not implemented (2 posts)

    Hi, I tried several times to upload an HTML file to my new site but constantly get the message: STOU command not implemented.
    Can someone tell me what to do to correct this situation?

    When you use the Put command, set the "If a file already exists:" menu to "Replace existing file" instead of "Put new file with a new name".

    (When this menu is set to "Put new file with a new name", Fetch sends the "STOU" command to the server, asking the server to give your file a unique name to make sure it does not replace an existing file. Some servers do not support the "STOU" command, and give this error as a result. And probably you want to replace your existing file with your updated file, anyway.)

    Let us know if this does not fix the problem. Thanks,
