My son-in-law had a similar experience at work today. Organizational website was down. He checks the server and sees that index.html is empty. So he calls the off-site (American) contractor who handles it.|
Contractor: Looks good to me
SIL: what are you looking at it with?
SIL:could you try it in your browser?
Contractor: Okay. Could you send me the link?
SIL: What? Do you mean the URL? You don't know the URL of the website you're maintaining?
Contractor: What's a URL?
SIL: So, when you have DreamWeaver upload it, what are you using for a host name?
Contractor: What's a hostname?
Finally after literally walking her click-by-click through doing an FTP upload with filezilla, he got the website working again.
