Cannot Complete Upload

I’m trying to upload my site. The process I use is to upload my site to my local drive and then to publish with Transmit. This has always worked for me in the past. Today, after applying the 5.6.4 Freeway Pro update, the process fails.

I get the error “Mounting Macintosh HD: Cannot complete upload because file not found. {-43:326:1496]”

I’ve read some other reports on this error, so I tried to rebuild resources. No problem there.

I noticed that if I do a Save As… Freeway Pro tells me my files are in Documents>Nami Site, but they are actually in Documents>Web Sites>Nami Sites. Could this be part of the problem.

Help. The charity I do this site for is expecting changes, and I’m stuck.

Ah, got it. Previously the upload folder could be nested within the site folder. Apparently that isn’t allowed any longer. When I created a new upload folder outside of that location, everything worked.

All it took was desperately trying everything I could think of. heh

The Site Folder - like the Resources Folder - is managed by FW and you mess with it at your peril.

In other words - don’t unless you really know what you are doing.

Any particular reason you dont use FW’s own, 1 step upload process?

I don’t see how I’m really messing with it. I used the Upload to specify where I wanted the folder to be and it allowed it. It doesn’t allow it now, so maybe it was problematic and that is why it doesn’t allow it now. But from my frame of reference as a user I was simply putting the folders in logical relationship. Is this messing with it? I didn’t intend it to be, and didn’t think it was.

Previously I didn’t use the Upload FTP process built into Freeway because it would never connect correctly to our server. Since I was already being confronted with the fact that things had changed, I tried it for the first time in a few months and it does now work. I will be using that process in the future since it cuts out many extra steps for me when it works.

The way to look at this is that after you have created/designated the Site Folder in FW’s Document Set Up section that is where your interaction with the Site Folder should end.

FW’s internal file management takes over from that point and it keeps track of what files are where. If you introduce files that FW is not aware of that way lies pain!

So to reiterate - the contents of the Site Folder are best left to FW, unless you really know what you are doing.

Ok, I can deal with that now that I know. I just didn’t know before. May I suggest that the program be changed to not allow a user to create an upload folder in that location? Especially now that it causes the upload to fail, that would seem like a good addition to the way the program works.

Thanks for your help, and thanks for making a great product.

Probably not a good idea because an experienced FW user may want to add files/folders in there to expand functionality.

It might be better if there was a BIG warning on the tin!

Ah, I see. Yes, anything to warn the clueless (i.e. people like me). =)
