    I recently had to use my webspace to create a new website and deleted at
    that moment the old website.
    Now I would like to put the old site again on the web, parralel with the new
    site.
    The problem is that i am only allowed one alias with skynet belgium :
    The new site is www.users.skynet.be/xxx
    and the old site was :
    www.users.skynet.be/yyy

    Which means that I would have to create

    www.users.skynet.be/xxx/yyy
    to put the old site in the new webspace.

    That would involve changing all the links in all documents.

    Can I avoid this in any way ? Or can this be done automatically by some
    specialised software

    I have a "Teleport" copy of my old website and also a directory where all
    the the files of the old website are gathered.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    That's why you always make sure you have *relative* links in your web site.
    If this is the case, then you dont need to do anything.

    If it's not the case, then inside DreamWeaver you can do a search and
    replace on all your files looking for incorrect paths and change them... you
    can make them relative at the same time to avoid this newbie mistake in the
    future :)

    Or get your own domain in the first place. ;-)

    You can also do this in any text editor if you don't have
    Dreamweaver... (which I myself use also ;) ) Even notepad
    can do this for you. Just use 'Find and Replace'.

    I just felt I had to mention that since the OP didn't say
    they were using DW.

    Thanks for all the reactions.
    I indeed used Find and Replace in Word
    and the job is done .... but other jobs are not done as this was very time
    consuming.
    I tried to download Dreamweaver but not one of the download sites
    initialised the downloading proces. I have no idea why.
    Thks once more for the kind help.
