Friend: you busy?
CTuck22: on phone
Friend: need help with damn webshop
Friend: You don't have permission to access /miniwebshop/ on this server.
You may need to create an index.html page or enable the directory browsing by creating an .htaccess file containing "Options +Indexes".
Friend: i have an index.html page already though
Friend: theres something in the page that says frame SRC="menu2.html" NAME="menu" MARGINWIDTH="O" MARGINHEIGHT="0" SCROLLING="auto", frame SRC="main.html" NAME="main" MARGINWIDTH="O" MARGINHEIGHT="0" SCROLLING="AUTO" do i need to add a line that says something about the webshop?
Friend: er am i way off...?
CTuck22: a little off
CTuck22: 2 seconds
CTuck22: ok off phone, where were we
Friend: when you go to www.*******.com/miniwebshop it says i need to create an index file
CTuck22: I see that
Friend: but i already have one so do i need to change it?
Friend: what if i change the webshop script to look for html instead of htms or something?
CTuck22: for some reason it's not seeing the index
CTuck22: make a copy of the index.html and call it index.htm
CTuck22: and have both up there
Friend: okey just a sec
Friend: still nothing
Friend: aah wait it didnt rename right
CTuck22: freaking weird
Friend: it says its called index.htm but in the file type it still sayst html file
CTuck22: that should be ok
CTuck22: what is the name of another file in that folder?
Friend: its all right in the main folder
Friend: like any random file? bbc.gif
CTuck22: not found either
CTuck22: what's the log in info again, not at my home computer
Friend: username probusta
Friend: password ********
CTuck22: I don't see an index file in miniwebshop
Friend: theres one in the main folder - do i need one in the webshop folder too?
CTuck22: which main folder, HTML?
CTuck22: that is the index for the main page
CTuck22: and you have 2 in there, index.htm.html and index.html
CTuck22: you'll need to leave that alone
Friend: index.htm.html is the one i just made
CTuck22: but miniwebshop doesn't have any of the files it needs in it's folder
Friend: im gonna delete that then since it doesnt work
CTuck22: how does this always get deleted like this, you had this problem once or twice before
Friend: damn it wont let me in now
CTuck22: I'll log out
Friend: i have no idea i never touch those files
CTuck22: someone is
Friend: that dude that was trying to redo the intranet might have done something stupid
CTuck22: maybe frontpage screws with it
Friend: yeah he pissed and moaned that he wants the new version of frontpage and thats was around when the webshop stopped working
CTuck22: that might be it, cuaqse all the files are gone, the index and the database and all the other .htm files
CTuck22: get your backup copy ready, I think you'll need it
CTuck22: or the copy on your computer
Friend: i have a few copies of it on my computer just in case of this crap
Friend: i think the most current was 7/22/04 but thats when it died
CTuck22: I would use that then, and just load everything back up there
CTuck22: hopefully it will all drop back into place and be fixed
Friend: are you suuuuure? reloading the webshop is what always made everything disappear beforte
CTuck22: well, do it one peice at a time if you're unsure
CTuck22: reloading miniwebshop through frontpage seems to screw with it, so just make sure it loads it to the webpage and not remove it from your computer
Friend: ok here i go..... :-S
CTuck22: something working is better than nothing up there
Friend: there IS an index file in the webshop folder on my hard drive
CTuck22: yep, should be a bunch of files
Friend: should i just upload those files first instead of copying the whole folder?
CTuck22: sure, good way to go and then if everything else is in place it will go back to working, maybe he only deleted those files
Friend: a bunch of the pictures are X's but its up!!!
CTuck22: you'll have to go hunt down some of the pics, they either got moved or deleted, but atleast it's something to work with
Friend: youre my hero!!!!!!
CTuck22: ok, it's a lot of the images fro mthe IMG folder, you should comapre the one you have on your hard drive to it and just upload what's not there
Friend: wo yeah theres nothing in the img folder on the ftp but theres like 33 files in my folder
