    Talked to the WYSIWYG Web Builder and to hosting account GoDaddy, made the corrections. There is still a problem with publishing the website?

    I would try to manually connect to the ftp site and use "pwd" to see where you are (as ftp accounts can be started in your home directory) and "ls -l" to get a directory listing of what is in that directory.

    What do you mean connect to ftp site and use "pwd" to see where you are (as ftp accounts can be started in your home directory) and "ls -l" to get a directory listing of what is in that directory? How would I do that?

    The manual command "man" is your friend. See: man ftp

    The configuration is defined the owner of the host that is giving you ftp access (not by yourself) and this is done for security reasons). It may be that you are logging into the FTP server and being placed in the directory that is "public_html" already. This would put all of your files into the web server space. When using a web hosting service, you need to know what is provided and how that is provided. When using a tool to create your web site, you need to know how to configure it to meet the needs of your hosting.

    Code:
    ftp hostname_or_ipaddress
    user  the_username_for_the_account the_password_for_the_account
    pwd
    ls
    bye
