    i am trying to upload a simple flash website. i have published the index page and then have an additional 21 swf files. i have dragged them over from finder to fetch without a problem and they are all listed with the same file names etc.

    when i try to view my website it says error 403 on the tab in safari and

    You don't have permission to access / on this server.

    have i missed something out after transferring my files?

    Hi emily2180uk

    I notice that you have a capitol "I" in index.html.

    Try renaming it to lower case.

    Your server may be looking for lower case only.

    i think that must have been it! thanks for that...i had a feeling it would be something simple that i'd missed.

    goodbye error 404!
