Publish a web using HTTP
Publish the files in the current web when you are ready to present your web
for public viewing, or when you want to update the files in your web. You can
publish using HTTP (HyperText Transfer Protocol) if the the FrontPage Server Extensions
are installed on the Web server to which you are publishing.
Before you publish your web, you can specify which pages you want to publish.
Then, when you publish your web, you have the following options:
- Publish only the files that
have changed. FrontPage compares the files on your local web to the files
on the Web server, and only those files that are newer than those on the
Web server are published. However, files that have been marked Don't
Publish will not be published.
- Publish all files, except
those that have been marked Don't Publish. The files from the
local web will overwrite all files on the destination Web server, even if
the files on the Web server are newer.
- Publish subwebs, if the
current web has subwebs. All files and folders in subwebs will be
recursively published in addition to those in the current web.
- Publish the web using a
secure (SSL) connection. For example, use this feature if your Web
server uses the HTTPS protocol to authenticate its users.

publish only pages that have changed, or all pages.

connection, select the Secure connection required (SSL) check

- In the Specify the
location to publish your web to box, type the location of a Web
server, click the arrow to select a location to which you have published
before, or click Browse to find the publishing location.
- Click Publish.
FrontPage publishes your web. If you want to verify
that your web was successfully published, click the hyperlink that is displayed
after the web has been published — your Web browser will open to the site
you just published.
If you cancel publishing in the middle of the
operation, files that have already been published remain on the destination Web
