Customer Question

Hi there Daniel,
I made a travel blog in iWeb back in 2006, and have done nothing with it since. I now have the same macbook that it was produced on, which is still going strong and iWeb is still in my application list. In my Library/application support/iWeb, I have a Domain.sites file that is 2Gb in size, so a likely candidate for all the data. But when I try to fire up iWeb it says:
Can’t open file “~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/Domain.sites2.”
I know iWeb was abandoned by Apple many yrs ago but is there any way I can access the data, print it out, move it into a different format?
Very grateful for any help you can offer
Pete

First of all close iWeb application. Then go to ~/Library/Application Support/iWeb/ and double click on Domain.sites2 file and check whether iWeb can open the file or not.

OK, so there is no Domain.sites2 file. There is Domain.sites and Domain.sites backup files

Double click on Domain.sites file and check the result.

It says it can't open the file Domain.sites2
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Weird, since there is no file called Domain.sites2

Are you using another user account on Mac other than the user account from which originally created the iWeb file ?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hmmm, good point. I'm loging in as my wife but I think iWeb was under me.

Do you mean logged into iCloud?
Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.

On your Mac also.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Hmmm, I've tried to open a new login under me and now iWeb opens but there is no file to find.
Could I copy the file onto a stick and then login under myself and try the file?
Also, I have to go to bed. Is there any chance we could pick this up tomorrow?
Expert:  Jins M. N. replied 1 year ago.

Okay,try it and let me know the result.
