    Hi all.

    I upload my small web page via godaddy. I used to use dreamweaver - but now i wan to use iWeb - and I did make a page using iWeb. I follow the instructions to publish from a folder - but I always get this message "Directory Listed Denied" The Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    The most common cause of not being able to view your webpages created with iWeb is that for your website to work correctly once you upload it, after you publish your website to a folder, you need to upload the contents of the folder - but not the folder itself - to your server.

    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)
      Family Trip (folder)

    Inside the "Family Trip" 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 website folder - that is, upload the entire contents of the "My New Website" folder, but don't upload the "My New Website" folder itself.

    Do not rearrange or rename files before uploading, or your website will stop working.

    It may be best to delete the files that you've already uploaded to the server and start fresh before trying again.

    We have a help topic on using Fetch to upload websites created with iWeb (click the link to read it) - it has tips and covers a lot of possible problems that you might be running into, and it may be helpful to read it over if you haven't already.

    If you're still having problems after looking this over, please let us know and we'll try to figure it out.
