    I started building my first website last week and have a weird problem. I am using iWeb 8 and publishing the site to a folder. I am then uploading the foler to my webspace with FTP client cyberduck. I have setup cyberduck to sync with the folder and it works fine however when it is finishing synchronising I get the message

    "ftp error; cannot read file attributes /web/cgi-admin/webformmailer.php Can't check for file existence"

    If I check the site eveything appears fine and the site has updated. Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong and how I can fix it?

    could be that your web host provides that file in the cgi-bin for you to be able to create forms that get emailed.

    And possibly you don't have permission to change it. But your hosting company should provide instructions. If you are not going to use that don't worry too much.

    That's a known bug in Cyberduck. As you said, it updates fine, just gives misleading error messages. I ran into it myself (and found bug reports online), but don't generally synchronize, just manually pick a file or two that I've been working on.
