Index & FTP

  Bob The Nob© 19:11 11 Oct 2006

You know when you access an FTP server VIA the web, you get an index page that shows all of the folders in that directory and then it shows files etc. I would like to use that it a certain folder, but my webhost just directs me to a 404 page.

How can I get an automatically updating list of folder contents?

Sorry, I'm being a bit slow. What is that gives you the 404? Trying to access one of the folders in the list?

If you are using the EI way of uploading then you should have the site saved in a folder on your computer. So, after opening the ftp site and on the same screen just look at the left side of the screen where it says "my documents". Click on that and navigate to where you got the site stored. When you open that folder highlight all the folders inside it and right click and choose copy. Then using the forward arrow button go back to the ftp site and right click and use paste. The site will upload. It will ask if you want to overwite any or all the files allready there. you can delete all the folders on the ftp site first as long as you got them all on the computer.

No, I want it so its a webpage that show the contents of the folders. so web access see all the files.

How do you know that he files are there if you can't see the index page?

But I don't know how to do it, I'm afraid.

I think your use of the word "index" was confusing people. By index, you mean the contents of the directory, like this: click here.

Can anyone help, now?
