Uploading FP site with FTP

I have made a site using FrontPage 98. I want to know what will happen if I will upload this site:

1. Via FTP,
2. Loading this site on a UNIX server which does not have FP extention installed,
3. What would happen if I load this site on a NT server which doesn't have FP extention installed?

Thanks

If the server does not have the FP extensions installed it is hard to tell what will happen.  FP builds a lot of cross references into a site that must be preserved for the site to work.  One of the reasons I don't use it.

You can load the site 2 ways...

1. Via manual FTP. You would export each html page into a directory, then FTP the directory or changed files.

2. You can use the Publish function in FP. Even if the server doesn't have FP Extensions, you can do this. You just need to specify the server / password / path to upload to the first time.

I would suggest #2 since it's a bit easier and will upload any changed documents on subsequent Publishes. If you run into problems, #1 will always work.

Thanks, but I want to know if the server doesn't have Frontpage Extenstion will the site still look the same way?

Ok that true that I can also load the site via FTP but will it make any difference (if I don't use FP to upload the site)?

Pls help me.

The site will look exactly the same, regardless of whether the server has FP extensions or not. The only thing you can't do if the server doesn't have FP extensions, is use some of the FP components.

The run-time components require the extensions which the server interprets and processes before sending the client the actual HTML.

The run-time components which require FP on the server are:
Confirmation Field
Default Form Handler
Discussion
Hit Counter
Registration
Search

A full list of the components and details on them can be found at: http://www.sitecrafters.com/support/fp98/webbots.htm

If you use FP or ftp to get the site on the server it will still look the same. I would try FP publish first. If for some reason that doesn't work, then use ftp.

One thing I would like to tell you if the server contains FP extention and you upload site with FTP then it will corrupt the server extention and your server administrator have to install it again.

So be careful about this. I come to know this fact when I searching the things concern to FP extentions.
