Hi artismobile,

No idea.  Can you tell us more about what you are trying to do, maybe make a screenshot or two?

I'm trying to help a client.  He's trying to "Put" and it's not working, giving him that error. I'm waiting for more info.

Is the file he's trying to put called webformmailer.php?

It looks like he's created a directory with a dot in it and I'm not sure the remote server will allow it.

He doesn't know what about the dot in the directory. He's just learning Dreamweaver, I'm sure he won't know what a pebkac error is.  I have CS5 Dreamweaver that I rarely dabble in. Is there anything else I can ask him for that can help?

Tell him to try to rename the file to something else and put it.

That's cute. That's usually me, but I unplug myself and do a hard reset and I'm o.k. <grin>
I'll forward the file rename and let you know.

Thanks for the help

But that tells me nothing useful.  Does he have an index.html file defined and uploaded?

No, how new is the domain name registration and hosting contract?  Because it looks like the DNS servers haven't caught up with things OR he's got no idea what he's doing and is uploading files to the wrong place.

Oookay.

It sounds more and more like the paths are not set up correctly in the site (seems to not be indicated by the FTP log) or there is a hosting problem.  Can you get verification from the ISP where the files are supposed to go?

His response:

When I called godaddy the rep said that they could see the picture I was attempting to 'put'. On my end the settings, test and responses indicate I am putting correctly. I don't know where / how else to check.

http://www.themanupmag.com/man-Up-Promo-sheet.gif returns a 404 error, so either he took it down or GoDaddy support is lying.

If GoDaddy support can see the site but we cannot from the outside, that almost certainly is a DNS config or other outwardly facing hosting problem.  Since GoDaddy is on the same network, the DNS would not be an issue for them...

It WAS operator error.  He didn't tell me what it was but I'm sure it was the complication between him and GoDaddy.  Thanks for helping
