<root> Web not displayed on FP98 Startup

I can't publish to my service provider. I keep getting the endless prompt for user name and password when I try. One of the cures, according do MS article Q168818 is to go to the root web and then alter permissions. No matter how often I re-install FP98, the <root> web never appears in the "open existing web" panel, so the "permissions" option is greyed out, so I can't alter any permissions, so I can't publish. I've been trying for 4 weeks to publish this web, and I'm time constrained. I don't know if this is a hard problem, but to me it's worth the whole 200 points in one hit.

I've never come across Experts Exchange before, but if it turns out to be the answer to my prayers, then I'll do whatever I can to help anyone else out when possible. I just think it's a wonderful idea. God knows, as a professor friend of mine put it when I first started learning programming "No-one is born knowing knowing how to build array structures."  I've always remembered that.

Obviously you cannot access the root web because it will be the one of your service provide, unless you have a port/web server to yourself. In both cases, the only thing you can do is get in touch with the service provider and make them check your permissions. Moreover, they should check that everyone may access the web and they should also make sure that you have administrative rights to all the parts of the server that you should have rights to, namely your web and all subdirectories.

If you do have your own server (or web service), then I suggest getting in touch first and then getting back to me. To solve this problem, the next thing I need to know is what OS (NT or UNIX) the server is running on and what you use to access it.

thanx

I'm running the personal web server on my stand-alone machine. According to MS,the <root web> should always show up as a web to open, since it's always on my personal web server. If it doesn't (and it doesn't!) then I can't change any permissions, so I can't publish. My service provider has already published a test web into my space just to show me it was working. SSo, I'm afraid I still don't have an answer as to what I should do to make it appear.
