Well, I'm teaching myself website design. I'm redesigning a site for my family's racing team. i have someone to host it bt whenever I publish the site using FP, everything goes well. But, when I go to the site, it says that I am unautorized to view the page. I am really stumped, probably becasue I am learning as I go along.

Please someone help me out. The site is www.flippins.com

Thanks! :tazz:

In order to use frontpage to edit your site, you must have frontpage extentions installed.

The server hosting the site is where the FP extensions need to be.

Sounds like you have friend hosting the site off a local machine. He/She needs to install the Server Extensions from the CD.

You do not have to install any extensions on your own machine.

You may also check to see if you have set up permissions for this site. Looks like you may have a page set up to be viewed only if you have logged into the web site using a user name and password. Then, you just never created the form for getting the username and password and/or the database to hold such information.

Check the security settings for the index page. Search Security Settings in FP help.

When using frontpage, it is easiest to use a server with the extensions enabled. However, if that isn't possible, consider using a seperate FTP client to upload the files, as this is an easier way to verifiy that the files have reached the site. Also make sure that you have a page named inex.html or index.htm and that your friend has his server set up to recognize these as default pages. I know that the default installation of Apache will not recognize index.htm, which is what FP uses as its default home page.

Let us know how this goes....
