How Do I Download My Website from my server To My Hard Drive? I use Frontpage 98.

Please give specific, step by step instructions. If you get at all technical, my brain will lock!

Many Thanks,
June Roldan

Fetching your web site ;-)

If you have FTP permissions this is pretty simple.
Just log in to your site with your favorite FTP program, Create a folder on your harddrive and call it "MySite" (or something), Next, click on the main folder that holds your entire site, don't open the www folder or what ever your site folder is called and click the arrow to send it to your "MySite" folder on your hard drive.

You should get a popup alert asking you if you want to "copy the directory structure" or something similar, click "Yes" and sit back and relax. When it gets finished you will have your site copied to your hard drive.

If you can't get to it using FTP, re-post and we'll do it different.

Open your browser and go to your webpage. Click "File", "Save As". The "Save Web Page" box will appear. Click the down arrow and select a location to save it. Give the file name a name you want to save it as. Save it as "Web page, complete(*.htm,*.html)".

Hopefully, that will do the trick.

What's an FTP program? Stands for File Transport Protocol ... it's just a way to copy your files from your computer to a server computer. For a good look at how this works, see the tutorial page of http://www.newbieclubhosting.com or visit this page: http://newbieclubhosting.com/ftphowto.htm
