I have Front Page 2003 which I have not used for a very long

This answer was rated:

I have Front Page 2003 which I have not used for a very long time. When I click on "View" the "Remote Website" choice is greyed out.

NewITZone :

Hi, Welcome to JustAnswer. This is Mahbub Shahin can assist you


 

NewITZone :

You cannot View a remote website unless you have opened a local website.


 

Customer:

Well, it's been so long since I have used this. I do have an FTP program running, so how should I copy the remote website that I have accessed with FTP to my local PC?

NewITZone :

At first log on to your site. then select all download to your hard disc.
you can use www.net2ftp.com to download the site.


 

NewITZone :

If you site address is www.justanswer.com as example. Please


put ftp.justanswer.com into the FTP server field.

NewITZone :

Put user name and password-->logon.


 

Customer:

OK, that is what I will try to do. If I understand you correctly, I should then have the entire remote website on my local PC. I can then open the local site with Front Page. But then how do I open the remote website? Or, should I make the changes in the local website and then transfer the files back to the remote website? Or, do I use "Publish Website" which I have forgotten how to do?

Customer:

???

NewITZone :

After complete the downloading process, create a new web database, locate the local server directory into the downloaded folder. Now configure the web server address.


 

Customer:

I apologize, but I am unclear as to what you are instructing me. What is meant by "create a new web database"? What is meant by "locate the local server directory into the download folder" and finally what do I do to "configure the web server address"?

NewITZone :

Ok. Do you already make site on frontpage?


 

Customer:

Yes, years ago.

NewITZone :

If you create a site on front page you have to configure the local server address (local HDD location). And also web server address (web site address) to remote website.


 

Customer:

The site needs to have updated information, and I am lost. For example, I need to change the contact information if the web site user wants to contact the artists.

NewITZone :

Okay


. I understand.

NewITZone :

At first download the site using FTP software into your HDD


 

NewITZone :

Now edit the contact address.


 

Customer:

Thank you for understanding. I am currently downloading the site to my HDD.

NewITZone :

I can send you a video tutorial. It will make this think easy.


 

Customer:

That would be wonderful. I have tried to find some basic tutorials on the MS website, but was unable.

NewITZone :

After complete your editing process upload it .


 

Customer:

I do know it is relatively simple once you remember what to do, but I am completely forgetting how to do it. Later on, I will want to add some jpeg fotos to the website as well.

NewITZone :

This is the link for the tutorial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55xjc_BolU0


 

NewITZone :

Ok.


 

NewITZone :

It is easy to edit web site.


 

Customer:

Yes, let me try all this in a short while. Does the tutorial also discuss adding pages to the current website and adding jpegs?

NewITZone :

No I can send you another.


 

NewITZone :

That will show you how to edit and add images.


 

Customer:

OK, you have been a great help. Thank you and wish me luck!!!

NewITZone :

I know you can do this.


 

NewITZone :

It is really a easy job.


 

Customer:

Finally, if I need more tutorials, how can I find them?

NewITZone :

You can search it through google.


 

Customer:

OK. Have you sent the second tutorial yet?

NewITZone :

Or If you want to edit the site in future tell me I will do for you.


 

NewITZone :

Please hold on. I am sending you the easiest one.


 

Customer:

How do I do that? That would be wonderful.

NewITZone :

Please tell me your website address.


 

NewITZone :

Customer:

NewITZone :

NewITZone :

What about the phone number ? Is it totally change?


 

Customer:

I just looked at the website in real time. It appears that you made all the changes?

NewITZone :

This tutorial will show you how to insert images http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hhk3IgHF8IQ


 

Customer:

By the way, I transferred all the files from the remote (live) site to my HDD. Then when I tried to open the local website using FP, it was unable to because there was a file named "public html" I deleted that file and FP was able to open the local site. However, the file for the contact information was missing. I will try, once again, to use ftp to transfer all the remore site files to my HDD

NewITZone :

Please download again.


 

Customer:

OK, I am going to try all this on my own at this time. If I need to get back to you, how do I do that?
