    Are you saying that you do not have FTP access to your site? If that is a true statement then you need to find another host.
    Please do not PM for support issues: a private solution doesn't benefit the community.

    Be careful with unsolicited advice via email or PM - Make sure the person you are talking to is a reliable source.

    you should have access to ALL of these files using FTP

    You shouldnt have to PURCHASE ZC from anyone

    if they dont actually give you ftp access to your files RUNNNNNNNNNNNNN

    If you installed ZC using something like Fantastico or your host installed it for you, go to the downloads section of this site and download it to your local drive. Unzip it there using something like WinZip and you'll be able to see the directory/file structure and create your own custom template which you can then FTP to your site.

    Mary, Dragonhorse is saying he doesn't have FTP access...

    I can't see how one can administer zen cart properly without it

    I'm not sure that's what he/she is saying. Some people expect to have access to the folders through the admin which isn't true and then they claim they have no access to anything to edit it.

    If it's truly the case that the host doesn't give FTP access to the users, then it's time to change hosts.

    I took a look at it... BlueVoda is a WYSIWYG website editor, which requires hosting on the Voda servers to publish (i.e., once you have built your site, you can never move to another host.) It doesn't say anything about ZC in the promo; I suppose once you are in the host site they offer it.
    I just wonder how this is supposed to work within ZC...

    This seems to get worse by the day...

    Sounds like a general alert to "avoid" is in order!

    They offer ZC, osC & Cube Cart, with osC preinstalled on the cPanel. Oh boy! : ()
    And I wonder who actually owns the "free" domain name?
    They *do* have a link to FTP tutorials, though, so FTP access must be possible.
