Microsoft's Web Publishing Wizard
Microsoft provides, free of
charge, a tool to publish your FrontPage web,
Office 97 WebPages or Publisher 97 WebPages to
any server. They call this Webpost or the Web
Publishing Wizard. It's a handy and convenient
tool to use. Here's how to get started:
Step 1. Locate the
Web Publishing Wizard. Start >> Accessories
>> Internet Tools.
Step 2. The Wizard
begins with an Introductory page, select next and
you are asked for a file or directory to publish
to the WWW. For this example lets drag an html
file onto the desktop and call it
"a.htm" In the dialog box enter "C:\WINDOWS\Desktop\a.htm" (or browse
for it), then press next.
Step 3. On the next
page press "New" Enter a descriptive
name for this connection and select <Other
Internet Provider> Press next.
Step 4. The next
pane requires an address. My username is sabercat
so I will enter "http://www.netrunner.net/~sabercat". Replace
sabercat with your username and DO NOT use the
Capital P that you use to login with.
Step 5. If you wish
the wizard to automatically dialin when you call
it select "Use dial up networking" on
the next pane. If you plan on only using it when
you are already connected to NetRunner, choose
Use Local Area Network.
Step 6. The wizard
will "Verify" the address then complain
to you. Ignore this and press next or OK until
you reach the page which asks for a protocol.
Select FTP - File Transfer Protocol. Then press
Step 7. Now the
wizard needs your username and password to our
system. THIS IS IMPORTANT. Enter your username
WITHOUT THE CAPITAL P!!!!!! Enter your password
also and press next.
Step 8. On the next
page enter ftp.netrunner.net.
Step 9. On this
pane you must enter the subfolder where your web
files are kept. This is public_html.
Also enter the URL for your website which is (in
my case) http://www.netrunner.net/~sabercat (replace
sabercat with YOUR username).
Step 10. Provide
that you followed instructions... the wizard will
reverify the connection and report that it is
ready to publish. If it complains, go back and
re-read the above and follow the instructions
uploading an image or page is as easy as right
clicking on the item and selecting Send To
>> Web Publishing Wizard.
