[Resolved] Upload Issue

  • I use Expression Web to upload files. The last couple times I’ve uploaded to my host, I’ve also screwed up my server config file in some way, shape or form.

    Then I have to contact the host to change some syntax on there end. They won’t tell me exactly what it is they are changing.

    To explain further, my http://www.loybanks.com/blog/ folder is located on my Local Expression Web and on the Host Server. So it occurs to me that I shouldn’t be uploading one of the blog files (maybe more) each time I upload other new pages, things, pictures,etc.

    So what I’m asking here is which files should I not upload each time to the sever. The program won’t let me “don’t publish” the entire blog folder, which would be the easy way. So I need to know which files should I not upload?

    That’s it. My thanks for your help.

  • Might consider using FTP to upload files.

    After an upgrade, the only files you should be uploading with FTP would be plugins/themes. Pictures/media would normally be uploaded with the media upload feature in Write Post/Page.

    Using FileZilla

    Thanks Michael. Yes I can upload by FTP. No problem. It occurs to me that maybe I should not even leave the WordPress Package in the Expression Web folders list, but rather delete so that it wouldn’t want to upload each time I want to upgrade other Web files. What might your suggestion be here?

    With WordPress being Server Side, that way when I need to upload “a file” to WordPress I can accomplish that upload on a one-to-one FTP basis, more or less. Does this make sense? Or do you have other suggestions?

    Thanks again.

    Sounds good to me.
