Check the permissions of the folder called photos?
You may need to chmod it as it looks like the folder itself is denying everyone access at the moment. Cry

I think I did mess around with permissions, I will take everything off it at the mo.

What's chmodHuh by the way.

By the way is there anyway I can individually password folders so people cannot access them without playing with permissions.

chmod (change the file attributes) is altering the permissions for files and folders.
I use cuteftp for my uploads (others should be similar) and once in the webspace I right click on a file or folder and then select the change attributes. This is where you supply a 3 digit number to the attribute. strting at 000 and working up to 777.
If you set it to 777 then everyone has read write and execute access to the folder.
775 will allow access to everyone but not allow the public to alter your files

In addition, your home page is constantly refreshing when using a Mozilla browser. It works fine in IE so you need to correct that problem as well.

It is probably something to do with the refresh META you have setup.

For password protecting directories, see the General: .htaccess tutorial, and make sure you know how to view hidden files in your FTP client (all files starting with . (dot) are classed as hidden).
