safe publishing sequence


Mike Jacoubowsky

Here's the scoop. I've originally had a disk-based web on my local hard
drive, which I've published *to* (instead of from) as a "remote" site.
That's meant that I've been editing live, on the ISP's website, and then
publishing back to my laptop. Not a good way to do things.

So, thanks to help from Steve Easton, I've now got my site published to my
laptop, with front page extensions etc (using IIs). So the local website at
this point remains the ISP server, and the laptop is still the "remote."

So my next step is presumably to simply reverse the publishing direction?
Set the laptop as the "local" and the ISP as the "remote" and publish away?

It's automatic.
Open FrontPage, Click file open site and then enter http://localhost/webfolder name.
The IIS version will open and it will be the local web.
When your ready to publish changes, while you have your now local IIS web open, click File
Publish site and enter the address of your remote web and FP
will publish to it and it will be the Remote web in FP.

In FP, whichever web you open "first" is the local web.
