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:

  1. On the File menu, click Publish Web.
  2. Click Options to expand the list of options.
  3. Specify whether you want to publish only pages that have changed, or all pages.
  4. To publish subwebs, select the Include subwebs check box.
  5. To publish using a secure connection, select the Secure connection required (SSL) check box. Your destination Web server must support SSL for this feature to work.
  6. 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.
  7. 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 server.

Tip   To publish only pages that have changed to the same location you previously published to, click Publish Publish button.
