Thanks for your quick response.
I've run through the questioned you asked below.
Do you mean to the root folder, such as /public_html/ ? I'm assuming (if that's the name of the root folder) that you can't upload to there?
Yes, the folders i listed above are all contained at the root level, so would imagine that when i upload the site it would need to be uploaded at the root level as opposed to one of these folder (see original post for .
forwarding currently set up on the domain.
The person who had originally set up the site had the domain and hosting set up with one company but then uploaded the site to a different server. So currently the domain is pointed towards a different address. I don't know why this was done.
What file, if any, are you trying to open? Or what are you trying to do when you get this error?
The two example error messages are what i received when trying to upload a file. This can be image, html page etc. The same error message occurs.
Just don't understand why I can upload any files to the root level of the folder. Also i can't create any folders at the root level.
Also i have uploaded sites before, and not had a problem.
Hope that helps,
