Publishing a Web Site - FrontPage 2003

Article ID: KB101215

  1. Open your web. Click the "Web Site" tab, then choose "Remote Web Site" from the bottom of the window.

  2. The first time you publish, you'll have to set up the Remote Web Site Properties. Click the Remote Web Site Properties button that is at the top of the Remote Web Site panel.
  3. You'll see several options for how to publish::
    • FrontPage or SharePoint Services - This is if you are publishing to a web server that supports FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Services. You will then type your web URL - for example, http://www.yourcompany.com.
    • DAV - This is if you're publishing to a server that supports Distributed Authoring and Versioning.
    • FTP - If your web site does not have FP server extensions, you will most likely be using FTP. You will then type the ftp location. It may look something like ftp://www.yourhostingservice.com/yoursitefolder.
    • File System - This is if you're going to publish to a different folder on your computer or network. You may browse to the location or manually type in the path.

    There are two other tabs - one for optimizing HTML and one for Publishing options.

    • Optimize HTML
      This tab has different options that you may select which will take out certain types of code or spacing so that the web page's file size will be slightly smaller.
    • Publishing Options
      This tab allows you to choose whether or not you want to publish all files or only changed files, and also allows you to specify if you want to also publish subwebs or not.
  4. Click "OK" to publish your web site. If you are publishing to a server, you may need to enter your username and password. If this is the first time you are publishing a web to this location, FrontPage will ask if it may create the files needed for a web. Click OK..
  5. FrontPage will begin connecting to your location. When it's ready, you'll see both your local files as well as your "remote" folder.

  6. Click the "Publish Web Site" button. FrontPage will then will begin copying the files over. You can view the status in the bottom section of the window.
    Note - If there are a number of people editing the web site, you may want to update your own local copy of the web site. You can choose to publish from "Remote to Local" or to "Synchronize" your remote and local web sites.
