index.html garbled text

#1 Post by odh1 » 2013-10-23 03:16

Hello Everyone,

I have just got passed over a job and I had to change sometings in the index, however,
when I download the index.html, the contents is always garbled, like this:


"00 ¨%F ¨î% ˆ –6 h@(0` €%@@@@@@@@@@@@+@@@2@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@3@@@.@@@ @@@@@@@@@@@@N@@@p@@@|@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@@~@@¸±ÿµ¡–ÿ·¢—ÿº¦›ÿ™ƒw㽧›ÿîçâÿîçâÿßÓËÿÙÌÃÿåÛÕÿÕÊÃÿ¯›ÿ¬—‹ÿ¯™Žÿ”|qã™}qÛ½¨œÿÔĺÿÙËÃÿÞÑÉÿÝÑÉÿÛÍÅÿѺÿ°›‘ÿ¤Ž‚ÿuiã°šAž…zÛË»³ÿèßÚÿèßÚÿâ×ÐÿÙÊÂÿÒÁ·ÿ¼¨ÿŒsg㙀uP—€v㻫¤þ¨”‹ù”}rðšƒxã”|pÔ‰pe’øà€à"

I have checked and tried several times that I transferred in Binary, shouldnt be a problem with the transfer, because my contact.html is working fine in dreamweaver. Its just the index page.

Can any one enlighten me?

Maybe a different editor will work?

I tried TextWrangler too, the text itself is garbled from the minute it is in my local space

If this is the result of a binary data type transfer, then either the file on the server is corrupt, or some third-party program is actively sabotaging the transferred data.

Could it be corrupt if the website is live and working?
There is no fault on the index page, or any other pages.

Could it be a permission problem?

Not a permissions problem. Unlikely that the file on the server is corrupt if the webserver serves the proper version, assuming ofc they both access the same file.

so we can assume that if the webpage is working, it is not a corruption?
If so, what is the cause then? Ive checked all my programmes on my desktop that can edit codes, doesnt seem to have any difference. the file itself really contains the garbled texts

do i need to try a diff ftp?

Could you try with a different client and check if you still get a scrambled file?

How can the corrupt html file work the website?
That's the 60,000$ question. And you do have no other way than FTP to get the file?
