Troubleshooting

When you create the first web of a new FrontPage installation, the program defaults to creating a disk-based web in the C:\My Documents\My Webs folder. This occurs even when the host machine has a Web server installed on it. If you have installed a server and want a server-based Web, you must give FrontPage the full URL of this web at creation time: http://MyPC/NewWeb, for example. You'll get a disk-based Web if you don't specify and the Web name can be construed by FrontPage as a path name on the host computer.

There is a further possibility for trouble. If you have a Web server installed, there will be what is called a root Web on your machine. This Web will likely use the name of the host machine (which was given to the machine when the operating system was installed). An example of such a root Web name is http://MyPc, where MyPc is the machine's name. If you try to create a server-based Web on this machine and supply an URL such as http://test, you'll get an error message saying you can't create a root Web at that location. To troubleshoot this and to create the Web named test, you must use the URL http://MyPc/test.
