I found a forum responder who said just use a windows Ftp protocol to update your website : www.example.com/~name
What are the steps? when I ftp'ed that site I used to be asked for my name and Password , then I accessed my files at that site. It don't work now . What do I do?

Well the way I did it before was to put this address right in the address space of U-soft internet explorer:
ftp://www.example.com/ or maybe without the www . The response from the edcentral server was Name? , then Password that I normaly used at that college server. Then I dragged the file from my PC and put the new web html into the file I called it my.index. Now the server doesn't even ask for my name let alone let me login. What I never got straight was use of some ftp utilities offered as freeware.
Mainly because they never worked like the simple drag and drop approach.

Birdman's suggestion didn't work?

Hi tomada
Maybe the simple answer would be to upload your files to the server via a ftp program cute, smartftp ect.
As Birdman said servers require the ftp.example.com/~name & password how ever this was set up at the time this should not change.
login = example.com/ftp.example.com

Password= #*$!

Check with your host/server and directory to upload or or try using the above
