Thanks, I did file a request earlier but I have not heard anything yet. I am surprised there is no phone support?
I think I have uploaded these files to my User home directory instead of the web directory of the site. I guess this means I do not have access to the domain itself via the FTP account I am logging into. This is an unfamiliar system. What still puzzles me is this: I do not have an account with DreamHost. I pay no fees or own anything with DreamHost. But I was given some access to the site in question using both cPanel and FTP access. What use is my home directory if it is not really connecting with anything?
I will see if the site owner can fix this as there is nothing more I can do from my end for now.
Before I go any further with this, is there any issue with using MODx on DreamHost? If there is I would love to hear about it now. Not to be negative but this kind of experience sort of reinforces the notion of asking clients to use hosts that I (the developer) am familiar with instead of going though all this head scratching making their host choices work.
I appreciate your patience and input here though. I am simply stunned that this basic question would yield more than 2300 views in a couple of hours!
