"Error while uploading" "Cannot create catalog"
« on: December 20, 2007, 06:21:27 AM »

I had uploaded my website a 2 months ago, which was only a few pages, as a test to get familiar with FTP and was successful. However, 2 months has passed and my website is complete and when I went to upoad the final product I received the error message "Error while uploading and cannot create catalog". I entered the same information for uploading when I origianlly uploaded but still received error.

I tried to look for more info in the forums but could not find much. I checked my page titles for any "/" but did not find any.

Do all my files go to public_html?

Any help would be grateful.

Yes, everything you want to upload and show up under your domain name should be put into your public_html folder.  If you are able to login - don't think this would be a user name/password issue either.  If your using the CoffeeCup software suit to upload and work on your site, I found this thread here that might be some help:

I read the thread on the CC forum and it sounds like I first need to start with uploading with a different FTP. Can you recommend a free one or is it better to buy it. Last night I created a few pages and sent them using the FTP offered with VSD and it worked fine but I still received the same error message when sending my original work.

I am also running  ver5.7. which I just downloaded from Lunarpages a few months ago. Do they offer another version? Another comment on the CC forum was to uninstall then reinstall a higher version. Would my website still work the same if I install a higher version? Sorry I am very green to website design and function.

Thanks for any help.
