    Hi everyone,

    I feel stupid I continualy have this problem when moving from one location to another with managing my websites.

    I never remeber the Dream weaver logon information.

    I know my site ftp address and passwords but never remeber the format for the ftp host.

    I am simply getting error log on messages no matter what I try.

    I am certain its very simple.

    Is there any one out there tha:(t dosent assume its glaringly obvious and can just tell me what info should go in the ftp host box.

    Many thanks

    bewildered jet lagged of china.

    Derek

    FTP host: domain.com
    Login: is your cpanel account name, not user@domain.com.

    The FTP hostname is: ftp.yourDomain.com where yourDomain.com is your domain.

    If it requires a full URL, it would likely be ftp://ftp.yourDomain.com and it should prompt you for a password.

    Most programs (especially web browsers) no longer support ftp://user:password@yourDomain.com but if all else fails, it's worth a shot.

    My post above is what Dreamweaver would use.
