Publishing From a Server to a Local Drive
Article ID: KB101526
Did you know that you can publish from a web server to
your local computer? You can do this if your web server has FrontPage
extensions. All you have to do is open your web live off the server,
then set the "Remote Web Site" location to a folder on your computer. In
this scenario, your local file folder acts as the "remote location,"
while your web server files, open in FrontPage, act as your "local
location." FrontPage will take the files from your server and publish
them to your computer. This is useful if you want to make a backup copy
of your web site to your computer, or if changes have been made on the
server and you want to "publish them back" to your local computer.
Publishing from a server to a local drive is often done when you want to
create a backup copy of your web site, or if someone else has made changes to
the web site and you want to update your local copy.
- Open your site live off the server. (Learn
publish your site, but to a local folder on your machine (File System
option in 2003, or simply Browse to the folder). (You may create a new folder
within the dialog box.)
