Uploading with FrontPage 2000

1. It is possible to use FrontPage 2000 to publish a website on the UNIX webspace provided by Madasafish. However, the UNIX webspace server does not have access to the FrontPage extensions required by the FrontPage 2000 'Web Bot' components and if they are used in the construction of your website, they will prevent it from working correctly. In the example below a new 'Personal Web' has been created in FrontPage 2000 and demonstrates how to publish to your webspace for the first time.

2. Open FrontPage 2000 and open the FrontPage web that you have developed.

3. Select File and then Publish Web.

In the Publish Web window enter ftp://www.users.madasafish.com/, replacing any information currently held there, then click on Publish.

6. After the file transfer is complete you are then able to view the files via a web browser. Simply enter the URL of your webspace, e.g. http://www.users.madasafish.com/~username/.

Problems with uploading 'Dynamic' components.

  1. When uploading to the free webspace server, which doesn't include FrontPage extensions, certain 'Dynamic' components that may have been used in the design of the web page will not work. FrontPage 2000 detects this and will display the following warning:
  2. "The following pages in your Web contain dynamic FrontPage components, such as a Search Form or a FrontPage form handler. They will not work because the server you are publishing to does not have the FrontPage Server extensions installed."
  3. The pages that contain the invalid components are listed and you should make a note of the pages containing the 'Dynamic' components then click Cancel, which will terminate the upload operation.
  4. From within FrontPage Editor edit the pages listed and remove the 'Dynamic' components that are causing the failure. You will then be able to restart the upload procedure by returning to Step 2.
