I am a brand new user and definitely not a Pro user. I began with iWeb, just about got the hang of it when Apple pulled the plug and I moved to Sandvox which proved to be very limited and irritating, so here I am.
I do not want to be longwinded in my first posting but I am asking, in the first instance, if someone can point me at a good detailed guide for the publishing process. I have two domains to which I publish and I have several completely discrete sites which begin with the domain prefix but are separated out by subfolders. Such that anyone breaking down the address of one site cannot find their way to the other.
I want to try to be very organised about this with the new sites produced on RW and would welcome some tips on how the hierarchy should look. For example, if I have a site which is http://www.domainA/projects/project1 I would want to have several other sites which vary only in the last part.
On that same domain host I want to have other task-specific sites which are ad hoc and might be something like www.domainA/specificjob/images which I can use for disseminating specific information to specific parties and which cannot be seen by others who do not have the full address.
I got this ‘sort of’ working with Sandvox okay but there were often errors and it required me to head over to the host using FileZilla and having the feeling that I was making as much of a mess as I was solving the problem.
I have published a first trial site and, though there was a bump in the road when uploading it seemed to resolve but when I get the notification saying “the site has been successfully uploaded” and I click on “Visit the site” I get a domain host 404 page. If I put in the chosen address into the browser I get taken to my published page. So it sort of works but I have the sense that I am not doing it quite right yet, so far as the folder structure and path is concerned.
It may be that I just need some general and very basic FTP publishing tuition :0)
