    iweb 06 and easy iweb publisher
    Hi guys,

    I am new here and have needed to approach you at MF because no one over here (uk) can help, so i am approaching the professionals....

    I am using iweb06 with easy iweb publisher and i have a great website that i cant publish.

    Every time i press the configure button on easy iweb publisher i get the below message;

    (Red icon) "Connection failure. Cannot contact ftp://www.mydomainname.co.uk"

    I think i have filled in all the correct boxes!? here it is below;

    Configuration Name: "Default Configuration"
    Upload Web Site to: ftp:// "www.mydomainname.co.uk"
    Folder to publish to:i have left this blank but i have also tried "public_html"
    Web site username: Provided to me by my web host
    Web site Password: Provided to me by my web host

    Does it cause problems that i have purchased both host space and my domain from 2 different companies?

    I really am at a loss here and i have gone through every utube video and just about every page on the net but still no joy!

    Please help!!!!

    Looks to me like your problem is in the fact that your URL path has quotes around it. Is your url

    Ah. Understood. I wasn't sure. Everything looks good. What about using a regular FTP client?

    Hey, no problem. It's what I'm here for.

    FTP stands for File Transfer Protocol. You're most likely using a very basic and rudimentary FTP client in iWeb there, but there are definitely some alternatives. This requires publishing your site to a folder.

    Next, try to download FileZilla - The free FTP solution

    Also, I strongly recommend that you learn HTML codes. iWeb and other WYSIWYG programs add extra codes, directories, and files that are not necessary. Websites tend to become a mess and you're basically just working with what some program designed, not the look YOU want.

    Thanks for the help buddy,

    But the app doesn't open. i downloaded the PowerPC link which is my G5, i brought this to see how i would get on with a mac because i prefer the way they work ordinarily to windows and this was my experiment before getting a newer unit

    Have you anyother ideas?hehe

    Hmm. It should. Let's check the requirements and see what the problem is. Go to Apple>About This Mac and post your specs for me, please.

    And what is your OS version?

    You need to drag that icon into your Applications folder as a first step, but if your OS version is below 10.5.0 I'll need to find you a different program.

    Indeed. That's your problem right there.

    Hold on...searching for a different client.
