I am in stage of learning FP.
I am planning to set up my web site with my ISP in near future. Before I do that I would like to create my pages and test them to be sure that everything is ok.
I want to do this in Front Page no other options, I know lot of you will say why not use another app..but I am stack with this option.
I passed through several tutorials and I am still confused and can not make this work.
I am just want to create one survey page that will store data in access db. for further use.
I would like to check all procedure from entering data through asp page to posting that to database and check if they are in database before I setup my live site on my ISP.
I want to check this on my PC.
I don’t know is this is possible in my environment:
My PC is W2000 on NT4 network. On my Ps I have installed FP2002 ,IIS5,FPSE for FP2002.
On my PC when I started new web it points me in direction” C:\Documents and Settings\MyPCnetworkUseNam
e\My Documents\MyWeb”.This is place where I need probably to create my disk-based web I did that. I created my database with form and got that in fpdb in “C:\Documents and Settings\MyPCNetworkUserNa
Then I created my post.asp and connected it to that database through FP ADO options and everything looks ok my post.asp is in C:\Documents and Settings\MyNetworkUserName
Now I would like to post it then open it in my IE and enter some data in and save it to my data base.
Problem start when I want to postweb.
I have Inetpub\wwwrooot folder and I assume that is folder that IIS created for publishing webs I went in my IIS and under default web site created “MyPulishWeb” folder .
I open My Fp and my post.asp then click on publish web in my in my “Publish From” box is C:\Documents and Settings\MyNeworkUserName\
MyWeb and in To is again “C:\Document and Settings\MyNetworkUserName
\MyWeb\ “ If I change it to
I got server error “The server at http://MyPulishWeb
does not appear to have FrontPage server extensions installed.
1.The web server may not have Front Page Server Extension Installed.
2.The web server may be temporarily out of service.
3.If You are connecting through a proxy server, the proxy settings my be incorrect.
4.An error may have occurred in the web server.
I don’t know what is happening and what is wrong front page server extension is installed.
Maybe all concept of my testing on this way is wrong.
Any idea how I should go with this?
