Using FTP To Publish From FrontPage


D

Dick

I am helping a friend try to recover his website. It is located at
www.w7yrc.org . He had a hard drive crash and lost the site on his
computer. I gave him the instructions on publishing the site back to
his hard drive, but he keeps getting an error message that. "The
folder http://www.w7yrc.org isn't accessible. The folder may be
located on an unavailable volume or protected with a
password.........." I get the same error message when I try it.

I think the problem may be that he has been using FTP from within
FP2000 when he publishes, and that if he had been using http there
wouldn't be a problem. When I look at his files on the FTP server,
all the FP folders seem to be there. Could one of you please look at
his source code to see if you can see why we can't open the site in
FrontPage? Thanks.

Site doesn't have FP extensions so he can't Publish back to his hardrive
using http. He'll have to use ftp.

The site does have FP extensions. They were turned on for his site,
but I talked with the ISP tech support, and they turned if off so I
could start them up again in the user console. Didn't help.
According to the ISP, there are some files missing in the private
folders that should be there. I don't see any option now other than
to take what we can with an FTP download, and rebuild the navigation,
theme, etc. Wish there was a way around this.

I believe you lose the navigation when you turn off FPSE, so you'd normally
have to rebuild them anyway.
