I'm using the "Generate Static HTML" feature in the administration section & it works fine on my localhost however when I uploaded my site to the actual live server, I get an error when I try to generate my pages. The error reads:
"Unable Write to directory"

I know this is a general error so it's a little tough to pinpoint my problem but are there any known issues with this feature that you guys know of that may be causing this?

Thanks in advance.

the directory that you're creating the static pages in needs to have its access rights changed to be writable; depending on your host, this may be something that you can do (if they've given you a control panel) or it may be something they might only be able to do themselves.
My advice would be to email your host, let them know which directory it is, and ask them to make it writable by your asps.
