File names
« on: December 21, 2011, 05:03:47 PM »
Hi
Using EW-2
I am not to savvy about file names but all of a sudden I cannot open by 2 sites either from "Recent Sites" or "Open"
When I try here is the error I get
The folder (see below) may be located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the file name contains a / or \
file:///C:/0_EW-ORACLEWIZ-2012/index.htm
or
file:///C:/01-EW-GOVFUNDS-2012/XMywebs-Old/GovFunds1/index.htm

I never had this happen before--just hit Recent sites and they pooped right up.
I was moving stuff around to day--did that do it.
Also, is there some way to delete all the files and sites that open up in the Recent Sites or Files  in the File Menu?
Thanks
Frank

I'd get the version of FPCleaner for EW 2 and use it to clean out the meta data and empty the recent sites list. The list will rebuild itself as you open sites but it sounds like you have corruption in the meta data which the FPCleaner will remove.

I am attempting to design our new web site using Expression Web 4.  The site is hosted by OLM.net.  I don't know what path to use as my destination to publish files to my site.

You need to talk to your host. Typically your site's public root will be in a folder named wwwroot, http_docs or similar but it could be anything depending on the host's set up. Usually you can find that information in your "welcome to [hosting] email" or in the FAQ on the host's site. If not, ask their tech support.
