When you try to access an existing Web site, you may receive the following error messages:
Unable to open http://<servername>/<page>. The site reports that the item you requested could not be found.
404 Not Found. The requested URL /page was not found on the server.
This error message occurs because FrontPage cannot find the page. This problem occurs when any of the following situations are true:
To work around this problem, use the appropriate method for your situation.
Method 1: If You Typed the Address IncorrectlyEnsure that you typed the Uniform Resource Locator (URL) correctly. If it is incorrect, retype the URL correctly and try again.
Method 2: If the Proxy Server Is InvalidFrontPage allows you to specify a proxy server. To verify that the server is correct, follow these steps:
Method 3: If You Are Using Browse-time FrontPage ComponentsThe browse-time FrontPage components require the FrontPage Server Extensions to function. If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not installed on the Web server, the Web server administrator must run the Microsoft Management Console and install the appropriate server extensions to the Web server that you are using.
Method 4: If the Web Folder Was DeletedIf you deleted the folder that contains all of your Web pages, FrontPage still maintains pointers to that information in another file.
Method 5: If the Web Content Was MovedIf you moved your content from its original location, move it to its original location, start the Microsoft Management Console, uninstall the server extensions, and then move the content where you want it and reinstall the FrontPage Server Extensions.
