How to Start the Personal Web Server

With FrontPage, this is a one time process per web site.  This must be started before you can use the publish button.  If you are an expert with an FTP program, you may chose to publish your web site the traditional way using FTP software.  If you would rather NOT use FTP to publish pages, then these steps must be followed in order to use the built-in publishing wizard.

  1. To use the publishing button or wizard in FrontPage, you need to start up the personal web server.
    This is found outside of FrontPage; it is a service that needs to be started.
  2. To start up the personal web server, follow these steps.
    1. Minimize FrontPage
    2. Click START, then SETTINGS, then CONTROL PANEL.
    3. Double Click the PERSONAL WEB SERVER icon.wpe2.jpg (1920 bytes)
