    I must be missing something really obvious in my configuration.

    I normally use wsftp, but for some odd reason, it shows a file was transfered successfully, but I can't access it in a browser. I also cannot access it in ftp manager in control panel. I'm guessing it may be set as a hidden file or restricted access in some way or another. Is there a way to set ftp manager such that I can view a files status even if it is hidden. I'm guessing its a problem with wsftp, but its hard to ask them a question if I can't identify the problem.

    For now my workaround has been ftp manager, but imho, its not as friendly as wsftp.

    Thanks
    Ron

    Go on, have a guess
    Hi Ron,

    wsFtp has got to be the worst FTP client I've ever used ;) I'd suggest that you try something like Filezilla which is free and simple to use:
    http://filezilla.sourceforge.net/

    Remember that when you FTP files to your website that you do need to upload them into your public_html/ directory for them to be seen - that is your web root.

    I downloaded WSFTP pro, to see if a version change might make a difference. I agree it is the worst piece of junk ever. My 5 year old version was loads better.

    I did find the problem, my hosting provider changed their server's IP address, but are still keeping the old one alive. As such, I was ftping to a server with no relation to the DNS entrys. Once I switched to the proper IP address, everything works great.

    Thanks for the pointer on filezilla. It sure seems to be a lot cleaner, and more intuitive the wsftp pto.
