I've been trying to research a problem in Discussions similar to my own but cannot come across a satisfactory answer.

For the past two weeks, I've experienced very slow "Publish" updating of my extensive iWeb site. In the last 24 hours, I've been unable to update the webiste at all. Here's the error message:

"Can’t create the file 'shapeimage2_link2.png.' The disk may be damaged, full, or you may not have sufficient access privileges."

Mind you, I'm well sort of my iDisk capacity, have the current version of iWeb, am running a reliable high-speed connection and have not experienced any hard disk problems that I'm aware of.

I have tried trashing the username/application support/iWeb/Domain file and letting iWeb build a new Domain file — to no avail. I've quit and rebooted — to no avail. I've run Disk Utility — to no avail.

Suggestions? I'm at wit's end!

    These types of errors have been reported fairly often. The resolution to the problem is pretty variable. The best starting point I can refer you to is probably Mark Heaton's (Apnewbie) page on iWeb publishing errors...

    Hi Randy

    I'd be pleased to find the solution to this. I started having the exact same problems and error messages today. If I find anything from another source I post it here.

    I also deleted the pages that weren't publishing and started again one at a time- they were photo pages in my case.
    Trouble is, I had saved prior to a successful publish and found myself with a corrupt Domain file and nothing new published . I'll be more careful in the future.
    It seems to be working ok again now. Very strange that we should have the same problem at the same time.

    Cheers Paul
