After many years of using Front Page 2000, I am now getting the error message "The Server Unexpectedly Closed the Connection" whenever I try to upload my website.
I CAN upload it using an FTP program outside of FrontPage, and all seems to work well.
Any ideas?

Is it possible that you mistyped a password, and Front Page now has the wrong one?

I teach frontpage, and I can tell you from years of experience to definitely use the FTP program.  I've wiped entire sites using the frontpage upload before.  Publish to your local drive (file system) and upload from there.

If you are using FTP, this can sometimes corrupt your FPSE.  You might need to repair them.  Don't remove them.

Thanks all.  Corey, I am going to give your suggestion a try, refreshing the FP Server Extentions, but will give it a go in January, after the Holiday rush (we do a lot of eCommerce & Sales right around now directly off of our website (www.zofiadesign.com) and don't want to do something that might knock us down for a day or two)
