    I deleted all the folders in the httpdocs folder. I think I needed some of them as my web site now as an apache test page. How can I reset the programm so all the original files come back (i've already mtried downloading the program again but the same files were missing when I logged in.

    Hi Dave,

    The files you see in the Fetch file list reside on another computer - the server - not inside Fetch. We here at Fetch do not run the server; usually the server is run by an Internet service provider or a web hosting company.

    There is no way to undo deleting files from a server with Fetch.

    In order to restore your website, you need to re-upload your website files from the copy of the files that are (hopefully) on your hard drive.

    If you do not have a copy of your website files, you should contact the company or people who run the server and see if they can restore the files for you, although unfortunately, that is not an option on most servers.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
