FP Publishing difficulty

Posted on 2005-04-26

I have trouble publishing a Front Page 2002 web to a server. All my other webs publish correctly. This one displays the "connect" box correctly titled as Connect to (correct URL), HOWEVER before the user and password boxes an incorrect URL is given. (It will not accept the correct user name and password.) When I cancel, the publish destination box appears with correct publish destination (the top line of the publish page is correct too), but when I OK it the connect box appears as before with the correct URL above the key banner and the incorrect URL below. (I can ftp changes, but I would prefer to publish.) What can I do?

    - Do not ftp,  because you will corrupt the extensions
    - If you can publish other webs it means that the extensions are OK

    When you enter the user name and password for the other webs does it accept?

    Ask the admin to reset the password and username for this web. Maybe for some reason it is not accepting.

    I had this problem before,  I asked the admin to reset the password.  After that it worked.

    Also,  would you please explain more?

    Which step do you want me to expand upon? I have given all the details which I can think of. All other web publish as expected.

    Problem solved
    I essentially started over with the front page extensions.
    You said
    "Do not ftp,  because you will corrupt the extensions"
    How can ftp corrupt the extentions on the server?
    I know that it might upset some of the fp connections on my web but to corrupt the server extentions????
