Hi, Thanks a lot for posting your query here. Mike is offline now and I am Jins here to assist you.

Did you performed any mac upgrade ? Anyway Try the following:

1 - move the domain file to the Desktop.
2 - launch iWeb, create a new test site and save. Quit iWeb.
3 - move the new domain file to the trash. Move the old domain file back to the original location.
4 - go to your User/Library/Caches folder and delete the iWeb folder.
5 - reboot.
6 - launch iWeb;

See if that will let you open the original domain.sites2 file.

Regards
Jins

Hi Jins,


 


Done that now and the same message comes up. Iweb open perfektly after moving my old domain.sites2 file out..


 


but after moving it back and deleting caches it came up with the same error

Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.
Okay, then please try the following.

Try the following:

  1. delete the iWeb and preference files, com.apple.iWeb.plist and com.apple.iWeb.plist.lockfile, that resides in your Home/Library/Preferences folder.
  2. launch iWeb and try again.

Regards

Jins

deleted the com.apple.iWeb.plist file but could not find the com.apple.iWeb.plist.lockfile file in there.



Still the same error


Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.
Okay, then please give read and write access to user everyone on that old domain file. Check this tutorial to see how to set file permission.

After setting permission try to launch iWeb again.

Jins

still the same ;-/

Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.
It seems, the domain file is corrupted. Please try the following.

Quit iWeb

In the Finder, right click the corrupted domain file
-> Show Package Contents
-> find all the .plist files (3 mostly) then drag and drop them to desktop
Then open this domain file with iWeb.
If it works, you will have to publish the entire site again.

regards
Jins

Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.
If it also do not helps, the only thing you can try is running Disk Utility to repair permissions. Disk Utility is in Finder/Go/Utilities. If repair permission also do not helps, try safeboot your mac. Then check iweb from there. If it also do not helps, there is sad news for you. You can't deal with that domain file any more.

iWeb stores all your website data in the file domain.sites2. If you lose your domain file or it gets corrupted you’ve lost your site. Remember you can export your website files to a folder but you CANNOT import them back into iWeb.

Regards
Jins

cant find the Utility for repair.

Expert:  Mike replied 1 year ago.
You can do it this way:

Restart the computer while holding the Command and R keys to boot to Recovery HD partition, when it boots select the Disk Utility and Continue. Then select Macintosh HD on the left and first Verify Disk on the right and if that is OK Repair Permissions. If Verify Disk is not OK try to Repair Disk.

  • Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents.
