trouble uploading

just upgraded to version 6 - but immediately encountered a problem. Tried to upload a site that only minutes before had uploaded in 5.5. Just got a warning saying ‘Cannot complete upload because a file or folder not found [550"markkelsallphotography.co.uk_MFHDc.]’

I contacted my host and he says the correct path ends in ‘MFHDc#x5’ - so nothing after the hashtag in the warning.

Any answers??

thanks

That’s deeply suspicious. Why on earth would there be any punctuation character besides a hyphen or an underscore in a filesystem path? In a URL, the # character indicates the “anchor” or “hash”, and thus must be the last segment of the URL. Having that character appear earlier in the path is a recipe for disaster. Did you name this folder or did your hosting company? I’ve been doing work with Unix servers since 1994, and this is the first time I have ever seen such a character in a path.

The host supplied me with the directory name: markkelsallphotography.co.uk_MFHDc#x5wwwroot

I have had no problems with this in version 5 - only has come to light when trying to upload the same site in version 6.

Not knowing anything about naming procedures, could this be an issue with FW6? Am I best just trying to get the host to rename the directory.

cheers
