SUMMARY

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.

MORE INFORMATION

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 (on the 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

  1. In FrontPage Explorer, open the Web you want to publish.
  2. On the File menu, click Publish FrontPage Web.
  3. In the Publish dialog box, click to clear the Changed Pages Only check box and then click More Webs.
  4. Type the path of the destination Web server.
FrontPage will first attempt 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, FrontPage will start the Web Publishing Wizard to connect with the Web server.

The wizard will ask for the FTP server name and directory path. The FTP server name is the domain name of the web server to which you are publishing (for example, ftp.server.com). The directory path is the folder on the server where your Web content is stored (for example, /www). The wizard will also request a user name and password for access to the FTP server.

NOTE: To determine what the FTP server name and directory path is for your destination server, or for more information about the user name and password for the FTP server, consult your Internet Service Provider.

For more information about the Publish FrontPage Web command, click the Index tab in FrontPage Help, type the following text
publishing, FrontPage Webs
and then double-click the selected text to go to the "To publish the current FrontPage Web" topic.
