This article describes how to transfer a FrontPage Web from a localWeb server or disk to an Internet or intranet server.

You can also use this information to transfer any Web from one Webserver to another.
There are many ways to get your Web content to the Internet, fromusing simple File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to using the FrontPageServer Extensions to posting directly to a Web server by using theHyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP).

All methods for getting FrontPage Web content to the Internet start withthe Publish FrontPage Web command (on the File menu) in FrontPage Explorer.If you installed the FrontPage Server Extensions on the destination Webserver, FrontPage can communicate directly with the extensions on thatserver. If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not installed on thedestination server, or if you are not sure if they are installed, you caninstall the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard from the FrontPage compact discand 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 ServerExtensions on the destination Web server. If the server extensions areproperly installed on the destination server, this is all you need todo. If the FrontPage Server Extensions are not found on thedestination Web server, FrontPage will start the Web PublishingWizard to connect with the Web server.

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

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