after successfully activated my account in free web hosting area, they gave me my address, is it the one to use as an URL to my website?

On the Osprey uploading facility (the addressis in the submission document available on myUnisa -> Resources folder), you upload the text file containing your code and your URL for our purposes - i.e. so we know where your real site is, and have access to your code (which should also be available on your real site). Of course you will not see it once you have exploded the file - it is not a web site - it is a submission site, and you get a confirmation that it was successfully uploaded.

Your FWHA site is the URL you need to include because we will use that URL to go and mark your portfolio.

But you have done this in ICT2613???

If you use the correct address as in the submission document, you must see it. I cannot post the address here because funny things may happen if other people have access to it.

thanks Mac

I can see funny things if I click the link like its showing documents for ICT2613, even though they are not loaded at the new site I created. I created this one because it didn't have my name in it so the link we are required to create doesn't open if my account doesn't have the name while the link has the name. I think I have mixed things up hear but I don't know where and how,

Remove your sites URL's....
the reason you have your name in your site is so somebody with your student number cannot guess your website and steal your code,
you take the guess work out of it by supplying them with your website...

(Then I have to admit I am guilty of looking at your site, as I have no clue what you are trying to say or ask and hoped i would help ...)
firstly it seems you are on the wrong forum....this is the third year subject 3612, it seems you are busy with 2613 the 2nd year subject.
either way I still have no clue what you are asking, and all I can deduct is I too can see "funny things" and that you do need help.

what is it that you are trying to do...?
where exactly are you strugling? (please be specific)

are you happy with your offline files?
if so are they uploading to your site correctly and are you happy with them there?
are you strugling with the ospray submition or is the prob else where?

I am happy with the code it displays well as intended in the local browser. I am struggling with 2 things
1. I can't manage to upload the file .txt in the uploading facility as explained in additional resources in myunisa, as I am using windows 7, I tried the first method maping the network drive but failed then I tried the second one which is any client and I get error messages like unable to transfer one or more file(s).
2. In my web hosting account, I have only the 8 pages required this year(4 php & 4 txt) but it only picks up last year's pages.

what do you suggest with regards to URL should I keep my account in a normal form (studentnumber.hostingarea) or I need also to add my name in the URL or this only applies to uploading purposes only? thanks

I am more confused than ever. The upload document (to Osprey) says nothing about mapping - ot os a URL to a site with an upload button.?

Its obvious I can't do it. you speaking of upload button in this link but i can't find it maybe I'm troubled with my computer.
If possible can I submit with other means please, my pages are available.

The upload facility appears to not like Firefox.
Working in IE though...
