Hello Poka,

Unfortunately it is not possible to upload a file into the server or root directory of your site. Please submit a support request to the entity that has requested you to upload a file into the root directory to see if there is another option available, most will have one. If you would like to forward me their answer to you I can let you know if any other options they give you are possible.

You can however upload your HTML files to your file manager and add them to your page from there. You will however need Yola Silver for that.

You can also add a SWF file to your page - Here's how to do that:

1) Upload your .swf file. You can do this by clicking on the File Manager button.
2) Drag and drop a HTML Widget onto your site, where you would like to see your flash presentation, and paste the following HTML inside it:

<object width="200" height="400">
<param name="movie"value="resources/myswffile.swf">
/<embed src="resources/myswffile.swf" width="200"height="400"/>
</object>

3) Then substitute "myswffile.swf" in the code above - in both places, with the name of the file you uploaded, and you should see the flash movie appear when you close the HTML editor. You'll need to play around with the width and height values in the text above, to suit your movie's needs.
4) Remember to include any folder names in the file path if your file is stored in a folder in the File Manager. For example: "resources/Flash folder/myswffile.swf"

I hope this helps.
