Hi

I'm new to this site an I'm not to sure if I've posted this in the right place but I'll give it a go!!

Basically I've taken over a website from a chap in Holland. He is unable to find a way to give me access to his site so insted he's emailed me all of the file associated with it. HTML files, *.Gif files, numerous files containing graphics for the home page etc and files containing icons and links.
My question is, how do I put it all together to re-create the site??
I've tried playing about with a number of website building programs but I just end up banging my head against a brick wall!
I know a bit about computers but this is the 1st time I've encountered website design and building.

Any help would be much appreciated!!

Your first step should be just to try and launch the html file in a browser - if it displays fine, you're good to go.

If it doesn't - you're going to have to decompile the html page to figure out which directories are being referenced and where to place all the images/styles etc. This can be done by finding the relative url in the img tag.

example:
HTML Code: [ Select ]
<img src="images/top.gif">
 
  1. <img src="images/top.gif">
  2.  


In this example you would need to place the images in a folder called "images".

Then all you've got to do is upload everything (keeping file structures in tact) to your webhost :)
