    Noob alert....

    Ok, noob alert.

    Got me some free web space.
    Got me a server at home running IIS.
    Got me a bit of web page thing going nicely on the IIS server.

    Now.... to put it on the Hosted thing (which prolly doesn't have frontpage server extensions) can I just copy the folder structure from my server across to the hosted one?



    The plan is that I can use front page and my IIS to get an idea for the site, check for bad links etc then upload the lot for public criticism later.

    If you designed your site in Frontpage and it uses server extensions, then you'll need them installed on the remote server. Otherwise, copy the structure up and if you've done your links properly it'll work without any hassle

    Ok, in IIS, the web sits in a seperate directory - so I simply copy the entire directory contents (hidden files et all) into my root directory on the ISP's directory?

    Just want to clarify as it all appears a bit too simple!
