Hi,

The only place my site exists is on the net! I lost it off of my computer.
I am so screwed right now!
It probably took me over 200 hrs to make.
(It's http://www.beatlemoney.com btw)

Is there a way for me to just download the thing back into my computer?

I've tried to read the help menu and other info on the net but can't understand what they're saying.

Any help I thank you.

Greg

Assuming you had half-a-brain and choose a webhost with a control panel, you can create a backup of your site via the web admin and simply download that file. It will most likely be a .bz2, .gz, or .zip. If you don't, then you'd just need to spend a few hours using FTP.

If you're using DW
set up a new site - under the site menu, manage site
add your site info
you'll need the user name, password and ftp info to do this

it's very simple


regards
Robert

How did you update your site? Typically people use ftp to upload changes/new files. Any ftp client will allow you to ftp to your site and copy the files back to your computer. Dreamweaver has this capability built in as well, as mentioned in one the of the previous responses to you.

Hey Greg,
Your story is starting to sound a "LITTLE FISHY"
Why dont you cantact your website admin

here's the INFO

Administrative Contact:
NICOLE SANDELL (149911) saandel@beatlemail.com
+1.9062262230
Technical Contact:
NICOLE SANDELL (149910) saandel@beatlemail.com
+1.9062262230

I'm sure SHE can help you...(IS SHE YOUR WIFE?)
Are you REALLY the owner of this website???
I think this is a battle between you and Nicole- he maybe you owe her money...

or were you looking for a couple of GUILIBLE HACKS to help you???
If you do own the site... here is the info of your hosting company

http://www.catalog.com/v2/index.html

You should not bother people with future posts... when you have the info to solve this yourself

Robert

I dont understand why you cant just download it off the FTP you uploaded it on. Im sure know the information, or its not your site.

I dont blame you, anyone who would spend 200 hours on a site that looks like that sure has no idea what he is doing. because to be honest, the layout is looks like a geocities page builder.
