This article describes how to transfer a FrontPage Web from a local Web server or disk to an Internet or intranet server.
You can also use this information to transfer any Web from one Web server to another.
There are many ways to get your Web content to the Internet, from using simple File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to using the FrontPage Server Extensions to posting directly to a Web server by using the HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP).
All methods for getting FrontPage Web content to the Internet start with the Publish FrontPage Web command (File menu) in FrontPage Explorer. If you installed the FrontPage Server Extensions on the destination Web server, FrontPage can communicate directly with the extensions on that server. If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not installed on the destination server, or if you are not sure if they are installed, you can install the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard from the FrontPage compact disc and then publish your files to the destination server.
Publishing Your FrontPage Web to an Internet Web Server
ADDITIONAL INFORMATIONFrontPage first attempts to communicate with the FrontPage Server Extensions on the destination Web server. If the server extensions are properly installed on the destination server, this is all you need to do. If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not found on the destination Web server, and if you installed the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard, FrontPage automatically starts the wizard and uses it to connect with the Web server.
The first time you start the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard you may be prompted for the protocol, the name of the Web server on which you want to post your content, and other connection information. To obtain the correct values, contact your Internet Service Provider or intranet webmaster.
The Web Publishing Wizard also asks you what files you want to post. To properly post your Web, FrontPage passes the Web Publishing Wizard a list of files. The files are stored in an "upload" folder in a temporary folder where FrontPage is installed. Do not edit this if you want to properly post your Web. Once configured successfully, all subsequent posts to the specified Web server occur automatically.
