View Full Version : trying to publish from FP 2003 in ftp or FP extensions

Hi All,

I'm horribly lost. First, I don't remember my settings I used to even get the Index thing to show up on my site, www.plug-into-the-system.com (http://www.plug-into-the-system.com) All I see is "Index of / " and then some go-nowhere folders.

Then, after getting exasperated with the whole thing, I ditched the publishing efforts, thinking I could figure it out later, and kept working on my site in FP 2003 for another week.

Now I'm trying any way I can to publish, first trying ftp. First I made an FTP account in cpanel - cpanel gives me my ftp username, my password, my ftp server name, and ftp server port number 21. But Frontpage uses different terms - it asks for "remote website location" and "ftp directory". It also has a checkbox for "use passive ftp". What the???? Do I have the info I need but I just don't know what to put where?

Under "remote website location" it keeps wanting me to use this: ftp://ftp.plug-into-the-system.com/ Is this the correct format?

So, getting exasperated with ftp, I try using FP Extensions. My extensions are installed according to cpanel. I use http://plug-into-the-system.com as my "Remote website location", and then when I hit OK (as in OK, dear God, please just let it work!), I get a Frontpage error message saying the extensions may not be installed.

Man, I do wish VH had some phone support!!!!! I'd pay money for that right now!!!!

Thanks in advance!!!!

First off, you don't have index file that should
go right under public_html. The index.html is all

The first requirement is you must have a VodaHost hosting account.
If you already do, then proceed to the following link to learn more on
how to use FrontPage with your hosting account.

You have to make a choice of using FP or BlueVoda.
