Before you can publish an html file to your web site with FrontPage, you must either have a page already created, or create a page. To create a page with FrontPage, follow these simple steps: With FrontPage open, choose File --> New Type in "This is a simple test." From the menu bar, choose File --> Save As Name the html file. (If this file is to be your homepage, be sure to name it index.html) Once you have saved the file to your hard drive, you are ready to publish the file. Now to Publish Your Web Page From the menu bar, choose File --> Publish Web Click on the "Options" button. In box below, specify the location to publish your site: Enter the full URL for your site.( http://www.yourdomain.com ) If this is the first time you are publishing your site, select "Publish all pages" Select "Include Subwebs". (Obviously, you will have to put your real domain name instead of 'mydomain.com') Click the "Publish" button. Enter your hosting account username and password. Click "Done". If you have entered all the details correctly, FrontPage will then publish your site I installed Front Page extensions and now cgi programs won't work? Front page changes the way your site is managed on the web server. One of the draw backs is that it manages cgi programs in a non standard way and may result in the inability to run programs that are not included as part of Front Page. This includes most third party shopping carts, page counters, form mail scripts, etc... The only way to be sure cgi programs will work is to not install front page extensions on your hosting account. Additionally Some front page componants will not work even if the Front Page Extensions are installed properly on your site. I am getting an Error 500 "Internal Server Error" when trying to view my FrontPage site online. The most common cause is the use of FTP in uploading FrontPage generated webpages. This can damage the FrontPage extensions. In this case the FrontPage extensions will need to be reinstalled. This can be done in your cPanel Control Panel. If you are utilizing FrontPage to create your site, you MUST use the file upload feature in the FrontPage program to deliver these pages to the web server. If FrontPage webpages are transferred by another FTP client, FrontPage extensions will become damaged. And even though the pages may be successfully uploaded, they will not be viewable (translatable by a web browser) due to corrupted code. I'm getting error - "Root Web Busy" when I try to publish with FrontPage. FTP to your site and remove the "service.lck" file in /public_html/_vti_pvt. This usually happens when an FP session is interrupted before completion. NOTE: Just to be safe, it would be a good idea to reinstall FrontPage Extensions via your cPanel after you use FTP in your site. Most common problems while publishing site with Front Page.

Error 3 - Publishing site before domain propagation. Answer: You can't publish your site through Front Page when domain is under DNS propagation.
