    In my local info: this is what I have:

    local folder c:/myweb

    and that is all. nothing for http address:
    just http://

    But, when I try to click on sitemap, getting error message about:
    The site map cannot be map because, home page is not defined or wrong or out side of the root folder...what????

    What should I change?

    Do you have an index.html file already saved in the myweb directory? That would be the home page you need to define in the Site Map Layout...basically the root from which all links will branch. All this is in the site settings; Site/Edit Sites, choose your site from the list, and select edit. You need not put anything for the http:// address so long as your remote info access is set to none.

    You need to have a Web Server in order to run your HTML/ server side scriptings starting with http.

    It's all depends on which server side scriptings you use (if appliable) and then determine what Web Server to use..

    Like ASP, we can configure it to run web pages starting with http by using either IIS or PWS.

    Install Internet Information Server (IIS) onto your computer and then use:

    save your files into

    and the top file should be index.html or index.asp i believe.
