    Fetch could not put “index.html” because the FTP server sent an unexpected response. (Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information.

    Hi,

    Thanks for posting the transcript. Your web hosting company's server is reporting an error when it tries to create the index.html file. It looks to me like you are uploading index.html in the correct folder on the server, so my best guess is that this is a server malfunction. I would recommend contacting your web hosting company to let them know about this problem.

    Thanks,

    The strange thing is I can create a new folder and upload files inside that folder.

    Hi,

    Yes, that's another reason to believe that there isn't a problem with Fetch talking to the server, just a problem with the server creating or overwriting that particular file.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for your help, I've been in touch with the hosting company, so hopefully it will get sorted.
