Yesterday I posted a question regarding the website uploading. Thanks to Proz colleague advice I uploaded my site now to my Proz server, public html folder and ... nothing! When I enter my website's url, up comes this really nice Proz page informing me that I have not uploaded my site yet.
What on earth can I do now? What am I doing wrong?

SOS! It is driving me up the wall already!

With the software used to upload your files, can you actually see them in the server? If these files are there, is there one called something like index.htm/index.html (or index.php if your home page has the php extension)?

If you have really uploaded your site to the right folder and nothing comes up, at this point I think only the Proz.com hosting service staff can help you. Why don't you get in contact directly with them?

Proz hosting Oct 31, 2005

Yes, I can see the files in target folder. And the user name and password all work alright, I have a couple of email accounts there as well, so that is not the source of trouble.
I will look for the index file however, not quite sure about that one. And if all else fails, will contact Proz hosting technical support.

Thanks a lot!

is your index file, also known as index.htm, This is important, otherwise your site wouldn´t know which orderly projection is to be maintained. Some people have index1.htm and index2.htm also, I wonder why? Brandis

I am in the same position, except that I probably have less idea of what I am doing than you do. If you find the answer through a support message or any other way, please either publish it in this forum or tell me about it by email.

Proz support Nov 7, 2005

Hi Jack,

I files Proz hosting support request. Probably it was obvious what a basket case I am in this field, as I received the best possible assistance. What happened was that I had uploaded my files to the wrong folder, the next, in fact. So they were moved to the right place for me and the website was set up, so now it is working.
What stage are you stuck in?

Thanks for the reply Nov 8, 2005

Well, my software told me I had uploaded it somehere but I don't know where or how to find out where. I reckon I'll have to submit a support request myself.

Jack, these are the steps I followed:

1. Create HTML files (I created them in Wordpad, saved them as text but with extension .html. You may have created them in another way. Among these files you must have a file called index.html. That will be the initial page of your website.)
2. Go to tab "My ProZ.com" and select My Hosting
3. Select "Control Panel" and log in
4. Click on the "File Manager" icon
5. Click on folder www (the yellow icon, not the name "www")
6. Select "Upload files".
7. Click on Browse and upload your files one by one. When you're done, click "Upload".

That should be it. To check if files were uploaded correctly type the URL followed by index.html (http://www.jackdoughtywebsite.com/index.html). At which point did you get stuck?
Maria
