Frontpage Sharepoint newbie?

I have 2003 server and would like to begin my first SharePoint project using Frontpage 2003.

Q. Does the sharepoint portal cost?

Q. Do I need to install anything on the 2003 server? (I noticed it has a SharePoint Administration web)

Sharepoint Portal Server does have costs invovled. If you are just using the sharepoint internally, then go with the Windows Sharepoint services 3.0 (free download from microsoft)

You do have to choose to install sharepoint (whatever flavor). That sharepoint administration web link you see may mean you already have sharepoint installed. You can look in IIS manager and see if you have a default website configured (sharepoint uses the default website by default.)

All you are required other than the server operating system is SQL Server Desktop Engine (MSDE) which will be installed on setup & .net framework which is required to be installed before setup.

So the Sharepoint Portal Server is also called WSS?

Morning,

No they are 2 different applications. WSS has less features than Portal Server but depending on your needs may still be the right option for yourself.

Please take a look at the following product comparison guide.

I've read in some posts that installing sharepoint can cause problems in IIS, any experience with this?
