Hello all

Here is my problem

I have just taken over a new site. I have set up the FTP details and connected successfully and I can see the files on the remote server.
But I cannot syncronize the site, if I try, then a new file is produced called temp2342.htm and this file (and only this file) is then added to the remote server and to the local machine, I am then informed that no syncronization is necessary.
I have other web sites on the same machine but not on the same remote, with no problems.

I believe that the person updating the site before me was using FileZilla to upload to the site, this is obviously an option for me but I would prefer to keep it all within Dreamweaver.

I am using Dreamweaver 8 on a Vista Ultimate PC

Any help please.

What is the content of generated file, what is the remote site OS?

Hello Kechka

The content of the file is nothing, no code in it at all.
I am lead to believe that the site site is hosted on a UNIX server.

That file is generated by DW for previewing. Can you post your FTP log? The problem might be that you don't have space on remote server, can you verify that? If you have any temp or unused files on server try to delete and then try to upload something.

You are indeed correct, the log file says that there is not enough space on the server. I have just got some extra log in details for the web site that has enabled me to confirm that this is the case.

As I usually have full control of the web sites that I manage, I have not seen this problem before.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Off to upgrade space on site now.
