View Full Version : how do I unpublish

06-26-2008, 03:37 PM
I have ben farting around and published two pages that are useless. I have worked out why I cannot create a link through the menu. I have published all my pages with the same names. The work I have done on my second page is saved in the same file as my index. So how do I ubpublish the second two pages and save them and publish them under different name?

Please help as I am a complete novice.

Well... what I would do is go to the FTPO manager and delete all files.

1- Open BV
2- Go to tools
3- FTP Manager
4- Connect
5- Delete the undesired HTML pages
6- Publish your pages again

Hey everybody,
Correct publishing starts with careful naming and saving on your own computer first! Create an "index" page and save it on your computer as "index" (notice that I put nothing else on that name, just index...all small letters).

Once you have the "index" page ready to publish; use the "publish" tool on the menu bar of BV. (Don't use FTP to publish your pages!)

Now you can create your second page. name it "secondpage", (or whatever you want to name it, BUT get in the habit of using only small letters AND no spaces or underlines!)

When you are publishing your first domain; be sure to publish in this folder: public_html. Later on if you addon a second domain; you would publish to: public_html/seconddomain (notice no .com after the /seconddomain, that's because you are telling BV to publish to a folder name. BV will add the .html or .php as required for you)

FTP is a program you start by clicking the "tools" menu on BV and selecting FTP. You then have to "connect" once the FTP program loads in.
It's you the user's way of managing the files on VodaHost's computer(server).

If you are going to start over completely, make sure to only delete the files that have (.html; .php; .gif, .png; .jpg) that are inside the public_html folder! If you aren't sure about a file....don't delete it! VodaHost has given us plenty of space on the server so it won't hurt to have a little "junk" left on the server!!

Hope this helps!
