Please pity the world’s biggest noob!
Clearly I’ve no business dabbling in this, but I am stuck with seeing this project through. I finally got a website created, using CoffeCup Visual Site Designer (5.9.4), and now I’m trying - and failing spectacularly - to upload and publish the site. The email I got from Dreamhost says:
"When you have your software and are ready to connect, you will need to
provide it with a few settings: your username, password, and where you
want it to connect to.
FTP Server: nightwing.dreamhost.com
The CoffeeCup upload/publish dialog box is thusly:
I tried no less than 50 combinations in those boxes (examples below), all to no avail. (The only message I get is a CC dialog box that says “error uploading” - no details). The CC people say I must be putting something wrong in the boxes, which I don’t doubt. I’ve searched the forums & wiki (I’ve read this one 6 times: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Uploading_your_site), but nothing has worked. Can anyone help?
