Hi – let me say first, that I have got so much interest and pleasure out of the course already. All I have done has operated just fine up to this Unit 9. The issue I am having is that although my Router shows that I have a WiFi connection to the ESP8266 and I have the two files in the data folder (index and style), when I browse to the IP address (in my case (192.168.1.97) I get this message ‘This 192.168.1.97 page can’t be found’ .
As I try to understand this problem, it would appear that the two files are not being uploaded correctly, but I am not able to move this forward myself.
Can you help please?
I’m happy that you’re enjoying the course.
The “can’t be found” error probably means that it cannot find the index.html file.
So, or 1) the files were not successfully uploaded to your board, or 2) the code is not calling the right files. If you didn’t change anything on the sketch, it is probably related to the first issue.
Double-check that the files have the correct name: index.html and style.css. If the names are different, it won’t work.
Also, check the content of your data folder. It must contain only those files. The files should not be inside a folder. Otherwise, it won’t find the files.
Additionally, double-check that the files were successfully uploaded to your board after clicking on “ESP8266 Sketch Data Upload”.
