Editing HTML directly on server
Posted on 2001-08-04
I have a dedicated Web server running Windows 2000 and IIS 5. I have a customer who would like to be able to directly edit their HTML pages for their web site using FrontPage. I'm of the old school, that prefers saving HTML to my local hard drive, and then using an FTP client to upload the files to the server. But this customer wants to be able to collaborate with someone else halfway across the country, and they want to be able to edit the pages "live" while connected to their site using FrontPage. I am familiar with the Publishing Wizard, but that's not what they are looking for. They don't want any copies on their own PCs, but want the originals to be on the server, and they want to be able to edit those files via FrontPage.
Can this be done? If so, can someone step me through the configuration necessary on both the server and the customer's FrontPage client?
P.S., Yes, I do have FP extensions installed on the server.
