Killed my website

Hi Guys,

Thanks in advance for looking at this thread. I have owned a 987mb website for a couple of years now and not bothered with it too much, just a quick update. Last night I decided to upload a new and improved version using FileZilla, and it just seemed to merge the 2 versions and was a mess. So I then used FileZilla to delete all the content showing on the website in the html_public folder and re-uploaded the website. Now when I view the site all I get is this "Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /
on this server.
Additionally, a 404 Not Found
error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request." The website is - http://www.paul-thompson-photography.co.cc/ What have I done wrong.

404 is usually not bad. Your files are there somewhere the server just can't find them when your domain shows up in a browser. You can try to sort it out via ftp or maybe try your hosts online dashboard. For now try to get at least an index page in the root directory.

Many thanks Kev

I'm sorry but I should have said that I am a noob when it comes to this stuff. Can you explain it step by step, thanks
All the files seem to where they should be but they are not showing on the website

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?
