    What we now have to do is allow all the Internet Service Providers around the world realise where your domain should be pointing to. I.e. if someone in Australia says i want to visit your site, their ISP needs to know your on Escouts. That takes 24 - 48 hours (as i believe you pointed out above)

    However sometimes you will be able to access it much sooner.

    There are ways to get around it using the ip address, for viewing and for FTP, but it will be easier just to wait and give it a try tomorrow.

    You should now be logged into your site via FTP
    Yes!! Done this!!

    Unzip the CMScout zip file that you downloaded from the CMScout website. Unzip it somewhere on your own computer (In My Documents is normally a good place)

    You should then have a folder called CMScout2.00, open this. You will see lots of files and folders, select them all, press ctrl+c (Or edit->copy if you prefer that method).

    Then goto the public_html folder on your server, I believe you know how to do this know

    Paste all the CMScout files there (Ctrl+v or edit->paste). Windows will then upload all the files for you, it will take some time as there are almost a thousand files (Go have a cup of coffee).

    thanks jedi. I tried to do this and nothing happened, so I thought i'd have to strip naked and chant something at full moon as well. I shall try again!

    I feel so.......needy!!

    I forgot this step. Once you've worked with computers for as long as some of us had, chanting to the full moon becomes so ingrained in who you are that you forget that you are doing it.
