How to create a directory listing of hyperlinks to MP3 files in a web folder

Last Modified: 2013-12-24
I want to be able to paste a number of MP3 files into a folder at my website and make a directory listing, with hyperlinks to each file, available to a browsing user.

Obviously, I can create a page and manually add each link (which is what I do now) but I wonder if there is a way to automate it.
I vaguely remember being able to do this back circa 1996 when I used to create webpages by writing  HTML line by line in a text editor.

I play in a band and, in between weekly practice, we exchange demos and cover ideas via a webpage.

I'm not sure what system they are using, but the ISP is www.meganet,net.

Is there a way to check the type of server from within Frontpage?

yea do this


make a file called test.asp
with this code in it

<%@Language = "VBScript"%>
<%
Response.write = "I am a Windows box running IIS"
%>

then make a file called test.php

and put this code in it

<?php

echo "I am a linux box running php";

?>

When I browse to the URL containnig the file test.asp it displays all of the code as follows:

<%@Language = "VBScript"%>
<%
Response.write = "I am a Windows box running IIS"
%>

When I browse to the URL containnig the file test.php it displays an error message "Page cannot be found."

personally i would just email their support and ask

"can i use
Frontpage?
ASP?
Perl?
php?"

once they have answered head over to www.hotscripts.com and select which they allow.
