Going Live

Upload Issues

FileZilla setting to fix FTP upload Too Many connections errors

Carefully Uploaded more of the 11ty build directory contents

There were a few issues I had to resolve

  1. Server host is case sensitive and local system is not
  2. Some images were missing. Was an easy fix just upload those images.
  3. Forgot to create a few index files I link to from other sites, I have 3500 photos on flickr of AHS related events, reunions etc., each photo has links back to web files like https://ameshigh.org/letters/letters.html so for example, I created a file index.njk in the letters folder with my normal front matter + the following HTML to redirect to the new eleventy style index file. I wanted to start using 11ty style navigation so that is why I did the redirect.


<meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="2;url=http://www.ameshigh.org/letters/" />

<!-- Need this 6 sec redirect from http://www.ameshigh.org/reunion.html to http://www.ameshigh.org/reunion/ in home directory root because there are 8000 links to this file from all the Flickr photos. Ed H 3/22/2022 during end of pandemic -->
