Expression Web / FrontPage / FrontPage Server Extensions

Important notice regarding Microsoft FrontPage and FrontPage Server Extensions

Network Tallahassee no longer supports Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE), sometimes used by Microsoft FrontPage. Both were discontinued by Microsoft in 2006.
The only web server we have that still has FPSE installed is being decommissioned. The few remaining FPSE-based websites on that server will be moved to a substantially newer web server without FPSE.

If you continue to use Microsoft FrontPage, you will need to make sure FrontPage is configured to use FTP (File Transfer Protocol) instead of HTTP to "publish" to the web server.
NOTE: This is completely unrelated to VIEWING the website in a normal web browser (Edge, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, etc.); that is still done using HTTP or HTTPS like any other website.

  1. From within FrontPage, click File then Publish Site...
  2. In the Remote Web site location section, it should read ftp://ftp.example.com (replacing "example.com" with your domain name).
    Leave FTP directory blank.
    Select Use Passive FTP. This is sometimes necessary with firewalls.
    Click OK.
  3. If you are prompted for an FTP username and password, enter the same username and password you were already using and click OK.
  4. See also: How to publish a Web to an unextended server by using FTP in Expression Web, in SharePoint Designer 2007, and in FrontPage

If you have any forms in your FPSE-based website, they MUST be "fixed" so they are processed using ASP or ASP.NET instead of FPSE. FrontPage 2003 may be able do this natively (see: Using ASP.NET with FrontPage 2003).
If you have one or more simple "email" forms, see the ASP (Active Server Pages) section here: http://support.nettally.com/domainhosting/mail.asp
So long as these forms are not overly complicated, Network Tallahassee will try to make the necessary modifications to the files on the server to accomodate the change. If we run into problems, we will let you know.
You will need to download these updated files to your own computer so your local copy of the website matches what's on the web server. In the future, you will need to make sure you edit these updated files rather than the outdated ones to prevent the updated files on the web server from being overwritten with outdated code, breaking your form(s).

Expression Web information / documentation:

If you will be using Expression Web to create/maintain your site, you do not need a separate FTP program to upload the files. You can use Expression Web to "publish" your site using any of the following URLs:

ftp://ftp.example.com
http://example.com (only when FrontPage Server Extensions are installed)
http://www.example.com (only when FrontPage Server Extensions are installed)

Microsoft FrontPage

FrontPage timeline

FrontPage information / documentation

Microsoft FrontPage was replaced by Microsoft Expression Web. FrontPage 2003 is a stand-alone product; previous versions were available as stand-alone products and were also part of previous versions of Microsoft Office.

If you are using FrontPage to create/maintain your site, you do not need a separate FTP program to upload the files. You can use FrontPage to "publish" your site using any of the following URLs:

ftp://ftp.example.com
http://example.com (only when FrontPage Server Extensions are installed)
http://www.example.com (only when FrontPage Server Extensions are installed)

FrontPage Server Extensions

Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions (FPSE) are no longer added to existing or new sites we host and will not be added to newer/replacement web servers. If your web site currently incorporates FPSE, we strongly encourage you to migrate away from it. Even if you're using FrontPage to author your web site, FPSE are not necessarily needed. See the following:

If FrontPage Server Extensions are installed on your site, you can go to either of the following sites to configure several FPSE settings and fix various problems (fix permissions, "recalculate" the web, etc.):
