I am new at this -- in the process of setting up my first trial web site. I dragged and dropped my files which are now in the www folder. If that's suppose to upload to my site .. it doesn't. In the New Connection window, what do I type in the Initial directory field ... I'm not sure what I'm suppose to do there and what is the non-standard port #?? When I was in my computer class this was easy ... so what do you think my problem can be?

In the New Connection window, what do I type in the Initial directory field
If your web service provider tells you to put your web page files in a sub-directory of your home directory, you'd put the name of that sub-directory in the Initial directory field. Otherwise you'd leave it blank.
You almost certainly don't need to enter a non-standard port number.
You should make sure that you are uploading a file named "index.html" or "index.htm" as your main page, and that it's going to the right directory (which depends on your web service provider).
If that doesn't help, it would be useful to know the URL of the web site and see the contents of the Fetch Transcript window after you upload the index.html file.
