vti files corrupted?
Posted on 2003-02-25
I have created a website with FrontPage 2002, and am having trouble uploading it properly to my webhost, Netfirms ~ a host that supports FrontPage extensions.
My hover buttons are not working properly once uploaded, although they preview in IE fine when working from FrontPage.Also, there are quite a few pictures on my site, and a number of these do not show up, although everything checks out fine in FrontPage.
In addition, I am getting a couple of different error messages when uploading. The first was:
502 Proxy Error
Proxy Error The proxy server received an invalid response from an
upstream server. The proxy server could not handle the request POST
/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe. Reason: Document contains no data
After contacting support, the host said the vti files were probably corrupt, removed all my files from their server and asked me to upload again.
Then I got an error message stating server connection timed out. Another try produced this error message:
500 Proxy Error
Proxy Error The proxy server could not handle the request POST
/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe. Reason: Host not found
And still, the hover buttons do not work, and some of my pictures are dropped.
Now the hosting company has reported the error to their development team and I am awaiting further instructions. I'm getting very frustrated with this process!
Has anyone ever heard of this kind of error from FrontPage 2002 before? Is Netfirms just blowing smoke at me?
