Hi Ubiquitous - welcome to WMW.
your ftp problem sounds like it might be a path issue. Different webservers have mildly different ways that they map for public html files. If you give me a little more info about the paths I'd be happy to look into it for you.

The site is located at www.four-principles.com (184.108.40.206)
Once at the server's directory, the public files seem to be located in the directory: www.
One thing I also noticed are duplicate file names (for exp. intro.htm)in another directory called: _vti_cnf, but these identically name files were of a smaller size.

Did you specify which directory you were uploading to in your ftp program? I dealt with one server with the directory sturctured like so:
nifty ascii diagram [mivox.com]
So, if you ftp'd without specifying your upload directory, it would upload all the files to /domain_root/users/username/www/ (when you wanted it going to domain_root/www/) and you'd have to type in www.domain.com/username/ to reach the front page. I checked www.domain.com/ about five times (like you did) and never found the site I uploaded.
When I finally specified /www as the upload directory, I could access the site through www.domain.com like normal.

I have inherited a few sites lately the have the same "vti" directories.
Anyone know what these are about? For the most part they are empty (as far as I can see).
Looking for raw log file.

No, it just happened to me on my own leased server on a domain I host for my daughter. As it turns out, the server guys had set her directories up as a ~user and put some sort of unix voodoo on them. I was seeing everything as usual, directory setups etc., but the path that the ftp used ended up being something like adm/home/something/username/www rather than /html/www/domainname.
