How to update a web page

  intense 10:43 10 Apr 2008


I have a web page for my business and the creator of the page was updating it for me. However this process was slow and I would like to update prices etc. Could someone please help me, I have password for page etc

to the site? So we can see what it's made of? It will depend on if it is designed from a regular webdesign program or an online Content Management System- you say you have a password - does that take you straight to the webpage?

Do you use Firefox browser? If so, there is a very useful Add-on called FireFTP.

The roblem is is getting to access the server. Ive trie ftp:// instead of http:// but this didnt work, am i on the right tracks? the site in question is click here

  beynac 15:58 11 Apr 2008

You could try click here

If this doesn't work, I suggest that you contact your hosting company.

I didn't think that would turn into a "click here"!

Try ftp .skidegrees .co .uk (remove the spaces)

Hi beynac that doesn't work but it mut be something like that... anymore ideas?

it's at: ftp: //

Note that I've inserted spaces to prevent a 'click here' link forming.

Hi forum editor,
ok this is where i have got to so far. but how do you access the data from here? there seems to be nowhere to imput the username and password, and therefore access my pages, thanks

you're using an FTP program (Like WSFTP), and not simply trying to look at the site in your web browser?

yes im trying to look on a web browser, you're telling me i need a seperate app to view my pages? thanks
