    The most common problem when trying to upload pages 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)

    For your website to work correctly, you must be sure to upload both that index file, and the folder with the name of your site - 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 step by step instructions on using Fetch to upload websites created with iWeb - it may be helpful to read it over if you haven't already; it also links to a help topic that suggests solutions to common problems.

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