Web Site Problems

Hi

Yesterday I moved my web site from another ISP to +N, (having queried in this forum about setting the +N counter). So, after cutting and pasting the counter code-line I wanted and renaming the entry page to index.html, I "upped" it. - all went well.

I'd set up a domain, made a new directory on my htdocs, pointed the domain at it, all the stuff I think the advice said to do.

Last evening, after a long day, I accessed the site on +N several times to "prove" it and it all worked just fine - so I put a re-direction page onto my old ISP.

This morning (28Aug2003) I recd couple of mails from others who, after trying the re-direct, received . . .
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Not Found
The requested URL /canberra/ was not found on this server.

Apache/1.3.26 Server at www.bywat.co.uk Port 80
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
. . . as I did when I tried.

My site is http://www.bywat.co.uk/canberra/

Getting a bit embarrassed here as I've now mail-shot hundreds of people with the new url so they can update their links to my site. Cry

Is there something broken in the +N website empire? Have I done something inappropriate? Could a "guru" have a look and give advice? :?

Thanks in advance.

You could stick a redirect page at http://www.bywat.co.uk/canberra/index.html to stop people getting the page not found error.

That would only work if there was a file called index in the canberra folder. But try the link you posted . It gets File not found. So there is no index file in that folder.

Now that's an idea wiggey, thanks, may just try that. Would prefer having the name "canberra" in the url somehow (for obvious reasons) as I tried to get it as a domain name,

Sooooo. . . .I see yet another multi-mail coming up. Shockedops:

there are alot of sites which will do a redirect for free so you could get kick me to Canberra very easy and they would redirect to you +net page.
