Ftp question

Hello all...........I can ftp to my space, add and delete files ect but It dosnt seem to update,I tried leaving it 1 hr 2 hrs,then I wondered if I had made a mistake in my files so I removed them totally left the pc for 8hrs and there still on my Frihost space.....How long should it take to update files when uploaded by ftp ?

Usually changes will instantly take place...

Maybe you can try clearing the cache and reopen your browser?
It might be you are using a proxy and the proxy also caches the data.
Your ISP might be caching your files for you.

Thanks wjwong.......I cleared cache ect but its still the same allthough a m8 looked for me and the files were correct for him.......so I assume its my end
If anyone has had a simular prob , I would be grateful for a solution
many thanks

i think there is some problem with your account in particular. any changes thru ftp should instantly reflect on the site too..

and just in case, try deleting the files from the directadmin interface and see it that works properly.

Well if you have firefox browser. I know when you are doing work it can be kinda stubborn on the refresh time. So that may be your problem. Just close the browser, then try again. If this is not forefox, I don't know what the problem is..

How do i connect to the direct admin interface ?
I have looked in the faq's but how they suggest connecting to cpanel ( is this the same ?) dont work

If you remove a directory, it should be gone in a few seconds in most cases. Maybe install another ftp program like filezilla to remove a directory.

Well now I feel such a plonk Embarassed

Somehow without me noticing....I think its happened jumping from the IE ftp to the link to my site..... the link to my site in my bookmarks had lost the www. and didnt show the updated site but the older overwriten files

http://www.tumbleweed.frih.net/ good link

http://tumbleweed.frih.net/ bad link

It looks like I couldnt see the wood for the trees (again) , I do wonder where and what the second link is though

if you are on server 1 you can only use the cPanel application for administering your site from a web browser. if you are on server 2 however, go to http://<yoursite>.frih.net:2222 and this will load the DirectAdmin login page. (If you are on server 1 your web address will be http://<yoursite>.frihost.com, or if you are on server 2 your address will be http://<yoursite>.frih.net.

hope this helps!

1. Server 1 doesn't use Directadmin, ChrisCH, so you made a terrible mistake there.

The possible ways of connecting to Directadmin on Server 2 is..

http://frih.net:2222
http://frih.net/config/

And coming soon..
