I just bought Easy Web earlier today. I recently purchased a domain from qth hosting - domain is mansiononwheels.com (my little travel trailer). I want to make the most simple trip log for my trip to Alaska in a few months...
However, I can't get it to publish and I don't know how to fix the problem...
"Unable to connect to the remote host. Ensure you have an internet connection to your hosting provider before publishing your website."
Can you please help this novice?
Do you mean WebEasy? Afraid I don't know anything about that program.
It must have a built in FTP client tough since you can use it to upload your stuff. Are you sure you have entered your username and password correctly?
Well, you have uploaded something here.
Avanquest is the company that makes WebEasy, so WebEasy must have uploaded that. Rude of them to put their copyright on your pages.
Alaska sounds like fun. I'm envious. Hope you have a nice trip.
OP here - I've spent the afternoon trying to figure this out. What I've found, and I again, don't know how to fix it, is that you have to add mansiononwheels a second time...
And another beginner question - is there an easy way for me (ultimate novice) to add something on my web page so that my friends can get email notifications when I update the page?
OK. Your HTML file is named index.html and that's good.
I don't know if you know this, but when you type the URL to a directory, for example http://mansiononwheels.com/mansiononwheels/ the file index.html is automatically loaded. It's a little more complicated than that, but that's all you need to know for now (the server actually looks through a list of possible file names and serves the first file on the list that exists).
Do you have a folder on your computer called "mansiononwheels"? I think what has happened is that you've uploaded the whole folder into your web root folder at the server. If you upload a folder it becomes a folder on the server too.
I don't know if WebEasy does everything automatically or if it gives you choices. If it does, upload only index.html to your web root.
Looks like I did upload the entire folder.
Under the public_html folder, there is a mansiononwheels folder with an IMAGES folder and 4 other files.
Do I move EVERYTHING to the public_html folder and then delete the now empty mansiononwheels folder?
Yes, that should work.
OP HERE. I deleted the subfolder mansiononwheels and moved all its files to public_html. Worked fine.
Then I made a change to the page, uploaded it, and the subfolder was recreated again...can you tell from these FTP screens what I'm doing wrong?
I'm guessing Initial Local Folder.
You have this.
YES, there is that folder in my local folder! I'll go try to change!
ON EDIT: That was it! Thank you so much.
You're welcome. Good luck now and watch out for bears.
