Hi. I am new to website building and am having a problem. Im in the webshell, have my site up such as it is, but Im trying to upload a file to the page and havent a clue how to do it. Its a .rar file, not an image or html file. Any hints? I have the file itself downloaded to the webshell but have no idea how to get it on the page. I think Im missing something somewhere....Doh! Thanks

I quote:
"The .rar extension is associated with both the bat.rahiworm Trojan horse virus and W32.HLLO.Rozak virus."
From: http://expertanswercenter.techtarget.com/eac/knowledgebaseAnswer/0,295199,sid63_gci980646,00.html


".Rar files are similar to .zip files in that they are containers used to hold one or more compressed files. The .rar format is not as widely known as .zip, but it is used for a number of tasks, including compressing very large files, such as music and video.

"Experts say .rar files carrying viruses have been sailing past commercial anti-virus products and finding their way into the mailboxes of users, who are often unfamiliar with the file format. Administrators who have seen .rar-packed malware say that none of the messages have been stopped by their anti-virus defenses."

Angelfire doesn't allow RAR files, you are correct. 98% of RARs found in the wild are not legal. It's a common file type used by abusers, virus distributors, etc.
