    For the last week, and no time before this week, I have had issues uploading updates to my webpage.

    The following message has been displayed each time: "Fetch could not put 'Stats.htm" (the name of the file I'm trying to upload) because the FTP server sent an unexpected response.

    Check the Fetch Transcript window for more information. Server responded: "Failure writing to local file."

    This sounds like a problem on the server end.

    One possibility is that you may be out of space (also known as "quota") in your account on the server. Unfortunately most FTP servers don't give a useful error when this happens.

    You should try deleting some old files that you no longer need from the server, if possible, and see if that fixes the problem.

    If it does not, or if you cannot delete any of your files, you should contact the folks who run the server and have them look into the problem.

    Please let us know if you have further questions.
