FTP Help

by Karmaeliz / February 2, 2006 8:57 AM PST

I am currently using Flash to design my webpage and when I go to copy the files to the FTP it only opens as read only. I was told it could be because I am using a Powerbook and the instead of typing in ftp://mywebsite.com I would have to use something different. Has anybody else had this problem?

You have flash files (swf) and you upload them to a FTP server, but on the site they are only read-only?

Well when I open the FTP site it is read only. I had done the website previously in Front Page. Now I'm redesigning it on a mac with the program Flash and when I open the FTP site with Safari it won't let me delete or add files saying that it is read only.

it's that way when a program, other then the one you uploaded it with, is trying to change things on the FTP server. Download the files locally, edit them, reupload them with your new program... and just keep doing that. This should also allow you then to change them online... to open them on the server. When you view the files in ftp://domain.com then they are always read only, but if you open them with a program, you should be able to overwrite that.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
