Learn about iWeb: Error on some web servers after publishing

TS2167 I am running OS X 10.8.2 and IWeb 3.0.4 (601) and everytime I try to publish my website I get an unexpected error and it does not publish my changes. My website is pretty simple, mostly made up of iPhoto albums in different categories.

    Where are you publishing to?  Can you publish successfully to a folder on your hard drive? Have you read this webpage: Publish iWeb site using FTP. It may have a clue to where the problem is.

     

    A quick troubleshooting fix is

    Try the following:

     

    1 - delete the iWeb preference file, com.apple.iWeb.plist, that resides in your

         User/Home/Library/ Preferences folder.

     

    2 - delete iWeb's cache file, Cache.db, that is located in your

    User/Home/Library/Caches/com.apple.iWeb folder (Snow Leopard and Earlier).

    3 - launch iWeb and try again.

     

    NOTE:  In Lion and Mountain Lion the Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.

     

    However, when you delete the preference file you probably will have to use the app described below to select and open your domain file with iWeb:

     

    In Lion and Mountain Lion the Home/Library folder is now invisible. To make it permanently visible enter the following in the Terminal application window: chflags nohidden ~/Library and hit the Enter button - 10.7: Un-hide the User Library folder.

     

    To open your domain file in Lion or Mountain Lion or to switch between multiple domain files Cyclosaurus has provided us with the following script that you can make into an Applescript application with Script Editor. Open Script Editor, copy and paste the script below into Script Editor's window and save as an application.

    do shell script "/usr/bin/defaults write com.apple.iWeb iWebDefaultsDocumentPath -boolean no"

    delay 1

    tell application "iWeb" to activate

     

    You can download an already compiled version with this link: iWeb Switch Domain.

     

    Just launch the application, find and select the domain file in your Home/Library/Application Support/iWeb folder that you want to open and it will open with iWeb. It modifies the iWeb preference file each time it's launched so one can switch between domain files.


    WARNING: iWeb Switch Domain will overwrite an existing Domain.sites2 file if you select to create a new domain in the same folder.  So rename your domain files once they've been created to something other than the default name.
