When, in Sept. 2003, I used a program (WS_FTP…the exe is ws_ftple.exe) to upload my html code to my website (for which my ISP provides me space), I had no problem. This exe is free from http://www.freedownloadscenter.com/B...-ws_ftple.html
This program also allows me to download the code from my website so that I can change it or add to it.
Well, I would like to download the code now because Google (on whose search engine I want to be listed again) now indicates that my site url contains an illegal character.
The address of my site is http://www.metrocast.net/~wumply/exper-1.html. Well, back in Sept. 2003 Google did not object to my url at all; now I am wondering if Google has decided the ~ is the illegal character. Could it be anything else?
Anyway I thought to use the WS_FTP (a 690 kb program) to download my html code, so that I could remove the ~ and then re-upload the corrected code.
But when I try this I quickly get to a page as in the attachment to this post, but unfortunately the 2 folders named ‘mail’ and ‘public.html’ (on the ‘remote’ side of the screen) are missing. (Memory tells me that I clicked on the ‘public.html’ folder in the process of uploading.) The attachment is from this site: http://nersp.nerdc.ufl.edu/~dicke/ftp/ftp.htm which is a "how to use WS_FTPLE" site.
My problem is this. When I am at the screen in the attachment what are the steps I must take to get my html file at my site to download to my computer so I can remove the ~ character and re-upload? The "how to" site assumes I know that or can figure it out.
