    I know this sounds retarded, but I switched computers (onto one which I created a 1 page site for a friend), but I can't now find a way to load my site onto this machine in iWeb so that I can work on it.

    I have FTP'd the directory from A Small Orange, so I have all the output files, but I can't get iWeb to load it. I probably also have a backup of the machine that the work was first done on though I would rather not have to dig that out.

    Any ideas?

    You can't restore from a published site.

    You will need to copy ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain from the old computer (or backup) to the same path on the new computer.

    That's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the information on where to find the file!

    Cheers!
