It is iWeb 3.0.3 i downloaded from apple site.


when i start to installing after in step on "destination select" i select to Mac harddisk and there  is a message common say :

    You downloaded an update, not the iWeb itself.


    You need a valid copy of iWeb.


    See if you still have a copy on a DVD. The latest version is iWeb 3.0.4.


    And browse this forum for other answers, including using iWeb with Mountain Lion.


    Or wait for these answers to appear.

    Do you have a backup of your hard drive from before the upgrade to Mt. Lion?  If so you can obtain iWeb from the Applications folder in the backup.


    Or you can use the disks that came with your MBP to reinstall iWeb.  The disk will look like one of these; (#4):




    Otherwise you'll need to purchase a copy of the iLife 09 or 11 disk from a 3rd party retailer like Amazon.com or eBay.com to obtain iWeb 3.  If you also want iDVD you shoud purchase the iLife 09 disk as that will let you get all iDVD themes. If you're not interested in iDVD than either version will get you iWeb 3.

    I had reinstalling from the original DVD iLife 09 from but its seems not working too. When i open there is say iWeb has damage. but the file size shown that iWeb app hasn't permanently remove from disk.

    I have not a back up from the last. I only thought will be ok as i upgrade from apps store of mac.

    iWeb is not available to purchase via the app store.  As Old Toad has already told you, if you can't install from an old CD, then you'll need to go to Amazon and purchase either an iLife 09 or iLife 11 boxed set that contains iWeb 09.


    That is your only option to buy it from Amazon.  It is not available in the app store and you CAN'T download it.

    Delete the curren iWeb application and reinstall from the iLife 09 disk via a Customize install. Then apply the latest iWeb updater, iWeb 3.0.4.

    Thank u guys,

    i had done well ...but when i work on it, some missing font as font named is "bauhaus 93"


    So, every i open the iWeb always pop up message that missing font, is very annoying.

    anyone knows how to fix that?


  • Old Toad Level 10 Level 10 (129,940 points)

    That's a font used by MS Word. Do you have Word installed on your Mac?  Open Font Book and search for bauhaus.  If it's there deactivated it and reactivate it.  Launch iWeb and try again.


    If you don't see it in Font Book and you do have Word installed download and ue Find Any File to search for "bauhaus" to see if it's somewhere else on your hard drive.  If you find it, copy it to the Desktop and double click on it to install.

    I only use OpenOffice Ms word on my Mac. Is the same?

  • Old Toad Level 10 Level 10 (129,940 points)

    No.  It's an app that can read MS Word documents and save as Word documents.  Do a search for that font with Find Any File.


    Or download the font from here, Download Bauhaus 93 - Font-DB, install it and see if that stops the warning message in iWeb.


    Here's something you can try:


    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.
