I am a complete idiot as far as web design is concerned! However we are not born knowing and now I have decided I would like to know! I have chosen to use dreamweaver as a wysiwyg program following much investigation and advise. However I am experiencing a few little problems perhaps someone could help me with. I have meticulously followed the instructions at:
However when I get to the screen titled “site definition” the trouble starts. In the box “What is the host name or FTP address of your testing server” do I enter baht.dreamhost.com (my hostname as recieved in my opening email from dreamhost) or www.sapsuk.com (my domain)? In the box “What folder on the testing server do you want to store your files in” if I enter anything for instance index (then fill out my FTP login and FTP password) and click on test connection I always get the message “An FTP error - occured cannot open remote folder index/. 550 /index: No such file or directory”. What does this mean? If I leave this box blank then test connection I recieve a message telling me that draemweaver connected to my server successfully regardless of whether I enter my hostname or FTP as baht.dreamhost.com or www.sapsuk.com.
Sadly I do not understand wht this is happening. I am sure it is very simple really but I just need somone to explain it to me. Many thanks in advance.
