Publishing your pages

You now just need to publish the files that are on your computer to the webserver. To do so follow the next couple of steps.

    Make sure Site - ACME widgets.... is highlighted. It usually is by default.

    A message should briefy appear telling you your PC is connecting to the LoHost webserver that will host the ACME widgets web site.



  3. Click the blue arrow facing up (Put Files). You will be asked if you wish to upload your entire site. Click Yes.
