Oh the never ending FTP nightmare!
I've just started having problems updating content in iWeb.
I had switched to a new host after the demise of MobileMe and a couple of "Publish site updates" had been successful.
A few nights ago, I got the error message "Problem with FTP upload, try later etc"
I'm a reasonably good problem solver to a certain degree, checked all info such as passwords, ports, etc were all correct
After several failures, but a successful iWeb FTP test connection I delved deeper.
I've deleted the plist file from my library, repaired permissions.
Still getting the error message. Making matters worse, iweb seems hellbent on reuploading my whole site ...just to fail (Normally takes just over an hour)
Delving further, I'd read that it might be because some of my image names are jarring with the software, I made changes to all jpeg file names to get rid of spaces, long number strings etc.
Then, I happened to idly check my uploaded web pages and lo! It appears that they have actually updated...even though iWeb says that FTP failed.
A friend has tried helping by suggesting spending some cash on some new FTP software by Rage, but why should I? I want to be able to just use iWeb as I always have.
my url is www.hiab-x.com if anyone can spot a problem there that might be causing this frustration, feel free to hop on and tell me.
It seems iWeb software based and I'd really just like to get to the bottom of how to fix this. Apple may have abandoned the program but for the many of us who still like using it, I'd feel very bitter is this (Not unique to me) problem doesn't get resolved with an update of sorts.
Yes, I have the last published version.
If anyone knows a workaround that doesn't involve a third party developer and a new ftp client , I'd be very pleased to hear from you.
