FP98 Slow Publishing

Everytime I update my web pages, seems like FP updates all pages. Only update changed pages is checked in the options. It takes ~15 mins to update my pages to my web host server(Hway.net) regardless whether I've made 1 minor change to 1 page or extensive changes to all 10 pages. Anyone know how to force it to just update the changed page?

You could get an FTP utility such as WS_FTP (Ipswitch.com) and manually overwrite the page by copying a new page of the same name to the folder.

If your website is relatively large, FP makes a list of all pages on the server, then compares it with a list of all pages in your local copy. That's how it knows which pages have changes... The listing/compare operation does take a little time.

Additionally, it updates an indexing file that is maintained in the background. This file can be accessed by a search engine if you set up search capabilities on your site.

No way around it using the FP Publishing Utility. If you decide to use a 3rd party FTP, you'll find your local copy at: C:\WEBSHARE\WWWROOT\WEBSITENAME (unless you moved it to a different drive).

Reopen to other experts.
I'm aware how the listing, comparing and publishing works with FP and have timed same. Plus, I cannot use FTP with my present web host. I inquired why it takes so long to publish whether its a one word change on one page or extensive changes to all pages. If I recall the last publish attempt was minor and took about 7 minutes in the publish portion. I thought FP looked at the pages date/time stamp for need to update (evidently not). ??

It does use the date/time stamp. How many pages are there in your web altogether?

Why can't you use FTP? I've never heard of an ISP that required you to use FP Publisher...

My web has 13 pages ranging in size from 4 to 64 Kb. My web site host (Hiway out of Boca Ratan Fla) doesn't require anyone but Front Page users to use FP. Everyone else uses FTP (they don't say why).

Regardless, do you know why its so slow? I can change 1 word on one page & it will take ~7 minutes to publish to the site. If I recall correctly, when I was using FP97, it seemed faster.

tmiller1,
When I usually make any changes to my website I use FP to login to my server (kinda like an FTP client). Then any changes that are being made to a certin page are saved directly onto the server. Doing this eliminates the use of the Publishing process. But there is one small catch the new changes are not saved to your local HD. But then again who wants take the risk of loosing all that info incase of a HD failure....lol
