    FTP the files back to your local machine would be the first step.

    Someone else who uses iweb will be fit to tell you the rest, but i dont use iweb as i feel (personal opinion) that it creates naff code.

    You need the domain file that iWeb08 created in order to import back. You can't just import the published html files back. If you didn't backup this file, you'll be stuck recreating the site. If you did, you can toss it back into the yourusername\Library\Application Support\iWeb folder and then when you launch iWeb it'll load the site back in.

    No, I don't think this is a knock against iWeb. Rather, it's yet another example of why having backups of data is important.

    yes backups are important

    but why does iweb require you to have a file that is redundant to the site you are developing - if the OP had developed the site with a plain old text editor all he/she would have had to do to recover his site was to FTP it back from the server.

    With iweb it places a dependancy on having a copy of another file which isnt even used for the website!
