Thanx for the quick reply Ralph. Everything you posted makes total sense, the only thing is it's not translating right in my instance. I do have a subfolder called school with a school.html file inside. I don't have any links to it from my main site, I just wanted to post the whole school site to a subfolder of my main site.
Knowing all that info, I go to my remote folder structure and it's a bit confusing because there are dulplicate files everywhere, so which folder gets read as the site? I believe it's the "public_html", I have the school folder in there as a subfolder but it still doesn't work. Any more ideas??
thanx for the help
