publishing my web




I have installed IIS and enabled the server extensions, so
i am ready to publish. My web (index.asp) is in
and i am trying to publish to
However, when i specify this location to publish to i get
the message 'this folder is contained by a server-based
web. To access this web you must use the http://url for
the web server.
What does this mean, and why isn't FP letting me publish?
Thanks, Martin

You have to open the web as http://localhost/website. You should not be open the web directly via
c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ as you are bypassing the web server functionality and the FP extensions.
