    Hi Julie,

    I think you may have missed uploading a file to the server.

    When you use iWeb to pulish your website to a folder, it will create both an index.html file and a folder full of other files inside that folder. You need to upload both the index.html file, and the folder full of files.

    For example, let's assume your website is called "Family Trip", and when you use "Publish to a Folder," you tell iWeb to put its files in a folder called "My New Website."

    Once iWeb is done, in the Finder you will see:

    My New Website (folder)
      index.html
      UGC, Inc. (folder)

    Inside the "UGC, Inc." folder will be folders and files corresponding to each page of your website.

    For your website to work correctly, you must be sure to upload both that index file, and the folder full of website files - that is, upload the entire contents of the "My New Website" folder, but don't upload the "My New Website" folder itself.

    In your case, it looks like you missed uploading the index.html file. Try uploading that and see if it fixes the problem.

    If it doesn't, let us know and we'll try a couple of other things.

    Thanks,

    Hi Scott-

    That's the weird thing. The site actually is up its just at a different address. The Index file you mentioned is contained within the UCG file of pages. when I click on the file in Fetch and hit web view-it takes me right to it....at this wacky address. For some reason somewhere in the process these codes are being added into the base address. A guy at Go Daddy told me it was because of the path that I used. All I really need to know is how the change the file names/url on a file within the Fetch folder. Any ideas would be appreciated.

    Thanks!

    Hi Julie,

    We'd like some more information to help figure out what's going on.

    And could you please do the following?

    * Quit Fetch, if it's running.
    * Open Fetch again.
    * Connect to your server.
    * Choose Refresh from the View menu.
    * Then choose Fetch Transcript from the Window menu, copy the entire contents of the transcript window, and paste them into a reply to this message.

    That should give me some idea of how the files are organized on your server, and maybe see what the problem is.

    Thanks,
