Problem posting a page

I am having a problem that I've never experienced before and I am hoping someone out there might be able to help me.  I recently transferred a website from one web hosting provider to another.  I posted the website and the website comes up with no problem.  So far so good.  I then discovered that when I tried to go in the Members Area of the website I was getting a page not found.  It turns out the web hosting company has an admin directory and my website has an admin directory.  When my webpage referenced admin/login.asp it was being directed to the webhosting admin directory and not the admin directory within my web.  Therefore I decided to change my admin directory to admins.  I published the change under FP and when I tried the website the change was not there.  If I reference it in my address bar of my browser it works fine.  I used Procomm Plus to FTP to the site and to retrieve the file that is there and the change I made is in fact sitting there.  However when I go to the website via IE, the change is not there.  I am so confused as to what to do.  I did discover a postinfo.html file that said the following:

Comment: This page is created in the root directory of your FrontPage web when FrontPage is installed. It contains information that allows users to edit pages in your web using the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard or programs which use the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard such as FrontPad using the same username and password they would use if they were authoring with Microsoft FrontPage. If you do not want to allow users to edit files on this web using tools other than Microsoft FrontPage, you can delete this file.

Web Publishing Information
The HTML comments in this page contain the configurationinformation that allows users to edit pages in your web using the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard or programs which use the Microsoft Web Publishing Wizard such as FrontPad using the same username and password they would use if they were authoring with Microsoft FrontPage. Please refer to the Microsoft's Internet SDK for more information on the Web Publishing Wizard APIs.

I renamed the file and still have no luck.  Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

When you said that you used Procomm Plus to FTP.  Did you mean that you used FTP to upload a Frontpage Website? If yes,  FTP corrupts Frontpage Server Extensions.  You should:

- Uninstall Frontpage Extensions
- Re-install Frontpage Extensions
- Open your local website using Frontpage and use File > Publish

It should work

I did not use Procomm Plus to FTP.  I used it to download the file from the website to my PC so I could check if my changes were there and they were.

If you have access to your control panel on your website,   try to uninstall and reinstall the extensions.

I uninstalled and reinstalled Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions again and this time it worked.
