Hello yomi,

It seems that you are asking two questions here
Quote
please how do i attach a pdf file to a webpage?
You can include a PDF in a webpage by linking to it but you must have uploaded the file to the internet either to your own host or to any other host or to a free uploading site. When you upload it like that it now has a direct link which you can include in your webpage. Like this link below to one of the library books which we already uploaded somewhere before: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Is that what you mean?

Your second question:

Quote
i just design a website for some one and it appear the ftp is not connecting to the server.. inshort its taking long. I used dreamweaver to design the site and  i want to upload the whole webpage to the server but its not working

Are you sure the ftp details are correct? Have you uploaded a site like this via ftp before? Is it that your usual method is not working or you are not sure how to go about doing it?

Are you using an external ftp client or using the in-built dreamweaver upload facility?

If you are not using the in-built one then what are you using? Could you explain the process that you have taken?

We normally use Filezilla whenever we need to do ftp upload. Cpanel also allows you to upload a zip file and then extract it on the server. We sometimes use that too when we need to upload lots of files at once. Filezilla is a free ftp client. If you are able to isolate your actual website files, you can also try using Filezilla instead of dreamweaver's in-built. You can get filezilla here: You are not allowed to view links.

Thank u boss for the reply. I actually used dreamweavr cs5 inbuild ftp. This is my first time of doing file upload. No file upload at all. After defining the site, i tested it on d host server and it connectd. But the problem is never upload. It got to a time the host server refuse to even open on my browser. I have filezilla on my sytem, bt it ask me for two things server address and administrator password. I tried what i know but it refuse to connect. Now boss, which is the admin password and server address? Is it the ftp loggin password, in d email d owner gave to me i only saw an ip address and nameserver1 down to server 4. Filezilla is not connectin.. I also saw in the email Homeroot:/home, is where i will automatically upload the files or public_html?

I think the problem is with the connection.

You are to upload the files to public_html

The server address is the address of the ftp server and supposed to be something like ftp.yourdomain.com  and there is supposed to be an ftp user name and password. all these info should have been given from the hosting company and is usually in their welcome email. I'll send you a private message now.

When you open filezilla, near the top you will see spaces for host, username, password and port and then a button that says quickconnect. Is this in your version? If it isnt try getting the latest version

Enter ftp.yourdomain.com for host, that is if your domain name is You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login, enter ftp.yomisite.com

Enter ftp username and ftp password for username and password

Leave port blank

Click quickconnect

You need to figure out the direct link to the pdf

Where did you upload it to? if it is public_html then you should be able to get the link by typing You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

For example if the file name of the pdf file is getmoneynow.pdf and you upload it o your home directory (public_html) then the direct link should be You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

Try it and when you are able to get the direct link, add it to the page just like you would add any normal llink.

To test it, visit the site in the browser and click on the link

Isaac Newton said "if i have by any means gone ahead, it is because i have stood on the shoulders of giant" You have taught me what i have imagined for years. I am greatful mr Tonny, the upload was successful,pdf attached successful what is left is just a touch of perfection. You made me remember what Bill Gate said, 'There are two type of Business that will remain in the future, those who are out of business and those who are still in business using the internet' thanks for that expensive information. God bless Ng44.

Prince Nuel, when you do it once you will discover that it is not really complex at all. What is being done here is uploading files to a web host. FTP is just the name of the process that is commonly used for this type of uploading. It stands for file transfer protocol.

Don't worry as you progress you will definitely learn these things. They are all well covered in this new masters in online business course.

Have you read the study guide yet? Don't stop reading, just keep going on and getting familiar with all the concepts. In lesson 3 just practice and understand the concepts. Practice with any niche you like. Read the study guide and use it to mark your progress .

But if you cant wait to learn everything before digging in, There are some materials in the library that talk more about ways of finding a niche (check Online Gelt 101 for further ideas on how to find niches. Also take a look at our top niche list for Nigeria: You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

I strongly advice to download and read the prospectus to understand how you are to proceed

I will suggest u use filezilla, incase u dnt have it you can download it hear You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login
you will upload your file with this protocol. ftp.fostechassociates.com to public_html.
You should be having your username and password sent to your via email from your host? If you do, and you have downloaded filezilla, open it, you will see four field.
Use this for your server: ftp.fostechassociates.com
ftp username: check ur email for that and the password. Leave the port blank then hit the connect botton. Once it connect, locate your public_html folder at the right hand side, double click twice. And beging your uploading.

Hello Lateef Nicholas, I just took a look at your site. I think the problem is that you uploaded into the wrong directory. Just as yomiprof said in his post, for most hosts, you usually need to upload to public_html  folder for the site to show up in the proper place when the domain name is visited.
