    File permission problem

    I'm helping my brother make a website, but Powweb doesn't let you upload rss, aac, and other neccesary files. Is there a workaround?

    (I would ask elswhere but powweb seems popular here)

    Hmm... rss and aac... I worked as a web developer (it was Java, PHP, and Perl though) and never used those extensions... sure they are needed? (I have no idea what they are and am going to look).

    EDIT: *Hits head* duh... rss feed and aac as in music... anyway. Perhaps MP3 or OGG or another audio format. Can you rename files once they are upload? I know that is just a hack/patch and wont really fix things.. but is worth a shot if you don't need to upload thigns like that often.

    I tried the rename but it didn't work. I was thinking maybe a php script could change the extension (like have a song link named song.txt and but have it download as song.aac).

    The only supported media format is wmv

    Do you have permission on the site to change the extensions with PHP? If so it should be relatively simple to do what you suggested. I mean, can you upload personalised php scripts

    Powweb allows you to upload anything your heart desires, so I'm a tad confused as to what the issue you're having is. If you use ftp there are no limitations to what you can upload (assuming you have enough space).
