Chapter 18. Publishing to the Internet > Posting Your Presentation on a Server

Posting Your Presentation on a Server

After the Save As HTML Wizard creates a set of Web pages and graphics (or animation file) from your PowerPoint presentation, your next task is to post the presentation on a Web server where it can be accessed from the Internet. Basically, this step is nothing more than copying files from one location (your hard disk) to another (the Web server). However, you'll need to know the name of the Web server and the directory where your Web presentation is to be stored; and you'll need a user ID and password to gain access to the server. Usually, you'll need to get this information from the system administrator in charge of maintaining the Web server.

Also, in most cases, you'll need to use FTP instead of normal file copy commands to transfer files over the Internet. An FTP utility program, such as WS_FTP, will handle the task quite nicely. If you prefer a semi-automated approach, the Web Publishing Wizard can help some by prompting you for the necessary information about the Web server and handling the FTP file transfer.
