    I am using Httrack, I downloaded the website. But when i ftp the root files onto my host, there is no structure to the site. Seems like httrack puts the css in a folder that needs to be located hierarchy then the main website files(such as index page). Does anyone with experience know how to I can upload the site I downloaded along with the structure?

    Thanks

    HHTrack is good for static sites. If the site is dynamic then it can't download server side scripts.
    Is the site you downloaded static or dynamic?
    It is along time since I have used it.

    Its a static site. The issue i'm having is that when I upload it, i cannot get it to work if the index.html(or other pages) is in the root. It only works if the main index is a child of the folder that has the folder that the site was downloaded on initially. It seems to have a folder in the main folder that is responsible for css and format. If the folder is anywhere but in the parent position, the sites index.html will not show a formatted page. thx

    You are having pathing issues. You need to edit the html files and correct the paths to your CSS, JS, images and any other assets.

    If it is static then all you need to do is follow MrBlue's advice. I think there might be a bulk editing tool or try with Notepad++
