I'm using RapidWeaver 5 to make my site and when I publish the site, no matter what I try, it either does nothing (just sits there for hours) or tells me "failed to create remote directory".

Hello Jmitten,

I'm not sure what settings you're using in RapidWeaver, but it may the cause of your problem. Make sure that you're publishing to the PUBLIC_HTML folder (no caps when typing out the name). Also, make sure you're using your Cpanel user name and password for the FTP credentials - make sure your're using FTP to publish. Other than that publishing using a different FTP client would be the alternate solution. However, Rapidweaver should be able to connect to the server using FTP with no issues.

If you have any further questions, please contact technical support or leave a comment at the bottom of the page.
