SmartFtp upload problems.

UM, just the other day i got smart ftp for my site with NOTHING on it because nothing else would work to upload. So i downloaded it and i was told delete everything out of httpdocs, so i did. When i checked my site again i had this apache thingy telling me i can now upload things! So i dragged a file called index.html into the httpdocs. I guess that means that the file should be on my site now but it isnt. Please help me because i cant get the file up!!
