How can you tell if a server is Windows or Unix? Been having trouble upload a site to a customer supplied hosting package. The "host" is not available, looks like a one-man operation that keeps going to voicemail all day, so I can't call their tech support.
Dreamweaver was able to successfully connect even though I left the "Host Directory" blank. But when try to upload anything, it tells me "Acess Denied" and "May be a permission problem." On the remote sever, there's nothing except "/" an I can't even make a folder (same message as above). I've uploaded countless websites before, (mostly on a Unix server), and never run into this before. Any thoughts on this?
Thanks! I gave that a try, first with the actual domain name but it didn't work. Then I tried with the IP address and it brough up this:
HTTP/1.1 200 OK Server: Microsoft-IIS/5.0 Date: Sat, 18 Mar 2006 07:09:32 GMT X-Powered-By: ASP.NET Connection: keep-alive Connection: Keep-Alive Content-Length: 1270 Content-Type: text/html Set-Cookie: ASPSESSIONIDCQDQARDQ=NOOFKOEDNCHDMNDPCKLMPGHB; path=/ Cache-control: private
Sooo... looks like it's on a Windows server. Are there any special considerations? Normally I upload to a Unix server and enter public_html/ as the destination folder, or if I leave it blank, that often gets entered automatically. Not this time! Darned permission errors. Still can't reach the hosting company to ask.
