It won't work!!!

Post by desertfox » Thu May 19, 2005 4:45 pm

I am using tripod to upload my files and I uploaded them all in my file manager but when I go to my website address, all I see is the text. It doesn't show any pictures, headers, banners, desingns, nothing. Only the text. I uploaded all the pictures and all the designs from the template onto the file manager but ti won't work. Help me please!

Consider using a different FTP program like SmartFTP or CuteFTP

http://www.smartftp.com
http://www.cuteftp.com

Most files need to be transfered in ACSII mode in order to be uploaded properly. Otherwise files may not show up correctly. Most likely tripod isnt handling these files correctly.

SmartFTP is great. I use it.

Up at the top -
Address: your web ip/domain
Login: your FTP account username
Password: your password

Click the Connect button. You can use it just like you move files in Windows Explorer. It should auto-detect what mode the files need to be transferred by, so you don't have to worry about setting ASCII or Binary modes for transfers. Just drag your files from Windows Explorer into the destination directories in SmartFTP and let it fly. It will tell you when all transfers are completed in the bottom pane of SmartFTP. It will look something like this:
150 Opening ASCII mode data connection for file list
177 bytes received successfully. (177 B/s) (00:00:01).
226 Transfer complete.

I believe that is your login and password provided from my.clanservers.com. Log in and click "Manage" for your website. You should see listed there. The username is something like cs#### and you can specify your password.

Try FTP Manager Lite. It is an excellent free ftp client software that works flawlessly. The file manager is very intuitive.

You need to configure your FTP settings so it would accept your IP address too.
