FrontPage Server Bombs
Posted on 1998-05-08
What do I tell my ISP tech support people to do to fix a problem I am having? The problem lies with a threaded web discussion I created with FrontPage 98, using the wizard. I made no changes before testing it. It works fine on my PC. It does not work on my ISP's server.
My ISP says they support FrontPage 98 server extensions. The guys says he created a threaded discussion using the same facility in FrontPage, and runs it on the same server. He says he is looking into it.
The way I loaded the discussion onto the server was to copy the discussion directory from C:\Frontpage Webs\content\discussion\*.* with all the subdirectories to the server, using FTP. I can read the html portions of the site with my browser. The problem comes when I try to post a comment (or "article") to the discussion. When I do that, I get a server error (HTTP/1.1 500 Server Error). I assume this is because my source code is not seeing the server extensions.
This seems like a simple question, if you happen to be a FrontPage server administrator. I am sure my ISP will figure it out. I just want to give them an answer if I have one, so I can get on with my work.
