Support » Installing WordPress » Upload Issue

  • Resolved loybanks


    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 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.
