Opened a ticket online with the support group and got a responce back that "The issue on your server connection has been resolved you should be able to connect using your Dreamweaver program or the Control Panel." So I decided to fix a booboo I found, but could not. 550 error again.
Ok no more email, its time to play dirty and use the "Live Chat" feature! (Brew-HA_HA!! [evil supervillan laugh]) So next I got to sit through about half an hour of being told I'm up real soon.
Thank you for contacting Globat Support. A support agent will assist you shortly. You are number 1 in the queue. Your wait time will be approximately 3 minute(s) and 47 secondsSo who do I get on the Live Chat? My buddy "james" who had recently emailed telling me that he was able to upload to my account and that it worked just fine on his end. So now the fun starts... how to convince the already convinced that there really is something goofed up.
james: I saw your ticketGreat. He thinks its working. Hmm... I'll believe it when I see it. I'll find out where he uploaded and what he uploaded. If I can find it, which I doubt, then the problem is possibly on my end where no changes were made (thus the problem probably isn't on my end).
james: I just tried and we are able to uplosd to it
Inabeanpod: to the httpdocs directory?
Inabeanpod: which file did you upload?Huh? Now why would he upload a file over the top of one of mine? That don't make no sence! This is not good. I can see file 1.html. Maybe he really did upload it. *Half-dim lightbulb pops on* I fire up http://inabeanpod.com/1.html in my favorite web browser and what do you know, its not his. It's mine! There's no way in the world that he would upload the exact same file that I already had there. *Lightbulb pops on* He tried to upload a file and he sees mine. Get him to upload a file, not named the same as one of mine, like 11.html, and see how he reacts when it doesn't go (Brew-Ha-Ha!! [evil supervillain laugh]).
james: I uploaded a 1.html file there before
Inabeanpod: Can you upload a file called 11.http?Sometime later...
james: Do you mean .html?
Inabeanpod: oops, yeah
james: I'll upload pne please wait
james: Now it doesn't workSweet! Progress! Victory is nearly at hand!
james: I'll forward your support ticket to our system admins
james: I just escalated your ticket to our system adminsAll's well that ends well... especially if they get my account corrected and let me upload files agian! The directories under the one set as read only seemed ok, lets hope they don't get goofed up now as this gets corrected :)
james: It seems that it's still on read only
Inabeanpod: ok. will I keep the same ticket number?
Inabeanpod: Cool beans. Thanks for you help James.
james: You are welcome and have a good day!
