    Hello,

    Does Fetch support symbolic links? My webhost has moved my site to new servers, using symbolic links and I'm unable to upload files. I'm using 4.0.2.

    Thanks

    Fetch can follow symbolic links, but they can introduce difficulties because there's no way for Fetch to know whether a symbolic link points to a file or a directory. Could you post the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you see the problem?

    Thanks,

    Mainwebsite_html is supposed to be an alias leading to another path. I have found another way to get there now, but I'm still curious as to why it doesn't work.

    Thanks

    So mainwebsite_html is listed in the Fetch file list? It's very strange that the server would list it, and then refuse to follow the link when Fetch asks to change directory to it.
