Reupload Site And Form Question

Recommended Posts


I just rebuilt my site using site spinner. When I am ready to publish it to the web do I need to empty a file or delete something to get rid of my old web site that I built using microsoft office before I publish the new site?


Also I have a form and I need to know do you have a "mailto" script, and what the location of it is? Or maybe I should word it what do I enter as the path to the Form script in the 'URL (Action)' field?


Thank you for your support,

The simplest thing to do would be to clean out everything in the public_html folder before publishing your new site.


If you are using "mailto" to collect information from a form it's usually coded something like this:


><form action="mailto:youremail.com" method="post" enctype="text/plain">


Check out this sample from W3Schools.

The easiest way would be to ask the helpdesk to clean out everything inside the public_html directory. Note: you need to tell you do not want to have email cleaned etc only the public_html.


Otherwise if you want to control what is being deleted from the public_html you could yourself by using either cpanels file manager or do it through a ftp program.


No matter which way you choose, make sure you have a fresh backup of whats stored in your account (see "Select Partial Backup" in the the backup wizard in cpanel).
