I am using Front Page 2003.Going the "remote website properties" -using FTP and entering "users.freepages.rootsweb.com" and "genealogy_html" - I get an error that the folder is not located.
In using CoreFTP I uploaded the data to the website and it worked fine. I would like to be able to do this in Front Page. What do I need to do?

From the RootsWeb help desk http://helpdesk.rootsweb.com/

FTP to the WWW server (users.rootsweb.com) is again experiencing problems. We apologize for the inconvenience.

This problem has been going on for awhile. In the meantime you can use RootsWeb's file manager http://www.rootsweb.com/fileman/file_manager.cgi

If you are trying to publish to the freepages server, I just tried it using fp2003 and it worked fine. If you do not have the passive ftp checked check it and see if that makes any difference. On my way out so back on later. If it is one of the other servers, let me know. ~pat

I tried it with checking the passive box and it still did not work.

OK< silly question, have you actually created a website or do you just have a folder on the hard drive? Have you followed the steps outlined here http://www.genealogy-web-creations.com/publishing-a-website.... The steps outline publishing to a site not located on Rootsweb but the steps would be the same.

Yes, my screen looks like that.
Yes, I have had the website for quite a while. I had some computer repair work done, new motherboard etc; and somehow my frontpage program had disappeared. I reinstalled the program and now can't connect to the website.
