Publishing issues - Systems says "Cannot find files..."

    I've been trying to publish sites created since getting SiteBuilder installed. However, I
    have been experiencing difficulties. Although it looks as if I can log onto the server
    with the settings provided, the system does not upload the files. I am getting this error:

    "The site cannot be published to the specified location.
    Cannot find site files at http://domain/websites/(sitename)/. The specified site URL does not match the FTP settings."

    The settings are pretty straight forward:
    Working directory - /httpdocs/websites
    Web site URL - .../websites/(sitename)

    I have went into the Help system and found that relevant info that says "If the user
    wants to publish the site to a myFolder subdirectory, then the working directory should
    be /httpdocs/myFolder." Again, this is what I attempted in my settings. Please assist.

    If you publish into Plesk server the folder structure will be the following:

    Working directory - /httpdocs/websites
    Web site URL - http://domain.tld/websites/

    In case of simple hosting if httpdocs is FTP user's home directory by default working directory will be different: websites/ ...Please check it up.
