Directory copying is not currently supported (*SOLVED*).





CompactHaven
I tried to copy my uploaded site (which I couldn't get to show up) into 'public_html'
I followed the instructions

To copy/move files with the clipboard, add the source files to the clipboard with "Add to Clipboard", go to the directory where you wish to copy/move the files, then click "Copy Clipboard Files here" or "Move Clipboard Files here"

and I cot this message.

Directory copying is not currently supported.

Any help is appreciated.
Thanks.

We can't do much about it.

Otherwise try to do it with an ftp program, that should be much easier. Maybe try out http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/ .

Well, I spent an hour downloading filezilla and getting it to work. What happened now is, I uploaded my site, but it wouldn't show up. I cleaned everything out and tried again, and I'm a getting a 'critical transfer error.'

Firezilla shows no info uploaded into my Public_html, but when I view everything from this website, all of my files are in there, but my site still isn't working.

I'm now trying FTP_html
Critical transfer error again.

And this showed up for individual files:
Transfer channel can't be opened. Reason: A connection attempt failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a period of time, or established connection failed because connected host has failed to respond.
Error: Upload failed

Filezilla may store a cache. So, press F5 on filezilla.

Your public_html directory is empty at the moment.

There is a cars directory in the /domains/<subdomain>/ folder. Maybe that one should have been moved to the public_html?
CompactHaven
Woo! thanks bondings, it uploaded without failure
BUT, I still can't seem get it to show up.

http://www.compacthaven.frih.net/Cars2/Mitsu.htm is working fine for me. A directory is only showing something if there is a index.html or index.php file inside it.

Also note that the file names are case sensitive in Linux. "mitsu.htm" and "Mitsu.htm" or hence 2 different files.

Alrighty, here's the deal.
I've fixed most things by reloading pictures. For some reason Firezilla missed a bunch of stuff.
That for that tip on the working page.

One last thing
http://www.compacthaven.frih.net/Cars2/index1.htm
This is now my homepage.
Isn't my homepage supposed to be http://www.compacthaven.frih.net/? What can I do to make this my home page, or have it redirect to the home page?

You need to rename the index1.htm page to index.html.

I just tried it with both index.htm and index.html and I can't get either to work at the location
compacthaven.frih.net/(nothing)
Should I not have my files in the Cars2 folder?

You could move all your files up one directory, so /Cars2/index.htm becomes /index.htm.

Or, just make it redirect. Create a file called index.php and put this text in it:
Code:

<?php
 header("Location: http://www.compacthaven.frih.net/Cars2/index.htm");
 die();
?>


Then, whenever someone goes to http://www.compacthaven.frih.net/, it will redirect to http://www.compacthaven.frih.net/Cars2/index.htm, which is just what you want.

You need to put something (including an index.html file) in the public_html directory for compacthaven.frih.net to give some output. If you put them into the Cars2 folder then compacthaven.frih.net/Cars2/ will show that.
