    Ok, so I've gotten into cpanel, read the manuel and pretty much understand it, but I'm having all sorts of problems.

    My boss wants me to redo our website. Ok, no problem, so I'm using Microsoft publisher. How on earth do I get the website I've designed onto our actual website? I mean it seems like it should be simple enough; upload the site html and images to cpanel. Yea, it's not working right.

    I've tried deleting the old website files, but cpanel won't let me. I click on them, click delete, cpanel tells me they've been deleted, but they're still there. What am I doing wrong?

    Good grief someone please help me, I know I'm not this computer illiterate...

    have you tried login via FTP to check out if the files are there?

    Since you are using the M$ Publisher, you may direct publish it to your web root without going through the Cpanel. Login using your FP login username and password.

    It seems that your are creating a whole new site . if you need to reset the account , delete the public_html folder from cpanel . Then create a whole new public_html folder and publish the new site using ms publisher

    hostname: your domainname
    hostdir: public_html

    or if you have webpages on your local machine , then upload it to public_html using ftp client

    FTP (File Transfer Protocol) is the standard way of transferring files on the Internet. You can use an FTP program to upload your existing web site to your web space. FTP is built into many programs including Frontpage, Dreamweaver and Windows Explorer. You can also download any FTP program from the Internet to transfer your files.

    FTP Programs:

    Core FTP Lite (windows, free): http://www.coreftp.com
    WS FTP (windows): http://www.wsftp.com
    Smart FTP (windows): http://www.smartftp.com
    Cute FTP (windows and mac): http://www.cuteftp.com
    Captain FTP (mac): http://www.captainftp.com

    This is not a good idea. A user's public_html directory needs specific ownership and permissions. An end user won't be able to set the ownership correctly.
