This article describes how to transfer a Microsoft 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 Web command (on the File menu) in FrontPage. If the FrontPage Server Extensions are installed 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 use FTP to publish your files to the destination server.
If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not found on the destination Web server, the following message appears:
The server could not complete your request. Contact your Internet service provider or Web server administrator to make sure that the server has the FrontPage Server Extensions installed. For more specific information, click Details.When you click OK, FrontPage returns you to the Publish Web dialog box.
