I’m new to this whole website creation thing. I’m creating my wedding website in iWeb, I got my domain from DreamHost, and I am using Fetch as my FTP client.
I’ve followed all the instructions for using Fetch with iWeb, and DreamHost’s instructions as well. But even after I have uploaded all my iWeb files to the root, when I try and preview my site from Fetch, I get this error message:
The requested URL /index.html was not found on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request."
When I try to navigate to my page directly, without using Fetch’s Webview, I get this:
“Index of /
Name Last modified Size Description”
I went through all of Fetch’s troubleshooting with on of their service techs, and he thinks it must be a DreamHost issue - specifically that I have uploaded my files to the wrong place, but when I tried to specify an ‘initial path’ as my DreamHost domain (per his suggestion,) I got this error:
"Fetch could not open the folder "mydomain.net"because the FTP server says that the requested item was not a folder or could not be accessed.
If you entered a folder name or URL, check that it is correct. Server responded “mydomain.net: No such file or directory.”
I don’t know anything about what I’m doing and can’t even begin to troubleshoot my problems.
Can anyone who might be familiar with the Fetch client help a poor girl out?
