I’ve had some success with our problem. It seems that I accidentally put some pdfs into the Resources (Assets) portion of the site that were located on our server. Normally this wouldn’t bother Rapidweaver, but a recent Apple security update seems to have removed some of our ‘shortcut’ server user names.
These shortcut usernames are a legacy part of Users & Groups behaviour on the OS Server.
Because my particular RW site has been around for some years, once these usernames were removed, the server kept sending a ‘don’t know this user’ kind of message which said a particular mount point was unavailable - every time it tried to locate a pdf file. Does this make sense?
In short, by deleting whole folders full of pdfs from the site’s Resources, I was able to gain control over the site file once more.
After copying the pdfs to the local hard drive and reinstating the pdfs, I was able to re-link them to their places within the site.
Tedious, but apparently necessary. Blew a good deal of the weekend.
The site file has behaved itself since and I can edit pages and upload them fine.
So, not Rapidweaver’s fault really. Poor organisation on my part left the door open for this trap.
Maybe this will give you a clue to your problem.
