I goofed! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Instead of editing my index.htm file and then uploading it, I replaced it with a copy that included revisions, there-by NOT maintaining website links to index.htm. Attemped uploads of the unlinked index file "failed" (error 550). So I downloaded the index.htm file from my hosting service, and revised it the correct way. But upload attempts fail due to "too many tries". Will I have to download all files (publish) from my online account to my computer? If so or not, how do I get my uploads to not "fail"?

  • What are you using to upload files (EW's FTP?) and what is the *exact* error?  Too many tries to do what?  Upload, or authenticate? ( It sounds like a server error message, not an EW error message.)

  • Kathleen, thank you for responding. I believe I'm using EW's FTP. The error was 'too many tries to upload' my index.htm. I agree that it's a server error message.

  • Then you need to talk to your host. That's not something EW is involved with.

  • Thank you. Okay, my "host's" techs are supposed to get back to me. The other issue I mentioned needs to be resolved on my end, I think. I essentially deleted my index file and replaced it with a revision, which messed things up. I'm hoping that downloading the 'remote' index file to my local 'site' will restore the links I broke. Or I can use my backup 'site' which would not take much work to update. Is there something else I should or need to do? Are my ideas faulty? Thanks again.

  • It would take less time for you to try what you describe than for anyone to guess the results. We don't know the state of your site, your changes, etc.
