How do I Create a New Web in Microsoft FrontPage?

From the Start menu, point to Programs, and then click Microsoft FrontPage. The FrontPage Explorer starts. In the "Getting Started With Microsoft FrontPage" dialog box, click to select one of the three options under the "Create A New FrontPage Web" section. Click OK. If you selected the "From a Wizard or Template" option, the New FrontPage Web dialog box appears. In the Template Or Wizard list, select the template or wizard you want to use, and then click OK. The Web Template dialog box appears. In the "Web Server or File Location" box, type or select the web server (http://www.yourdomain.com) or directory you want to use.

If you installed a local Web server and the FrontPage Server Extensions successfully, the Web name already appears in this box. Select the default and go to step 4. If you did not install a Web server locally and you are not working with a remote Web server, type the drive and directory where you want to store the Web, and then click OK. In the "Name of New FrontPage Web" box, type the name you want. The web name should be one word and should not include spaces. If the Name and Password Required dialog box appears, type your name and password in the appropriate boxes, and then click OK. The FrontPage Explorer builds the new web. The web address is displayed in the title bar.

HTTP 404 Error When Using Web Publishing Wizard

When you use the Publish FrontPage Web command in FrontPage, you may receive the following error when you post to a Web server that doesn't have FrontPage Server Extensions installed:
The server may not have the FrontPage Server Extensions installed, or the server may be miss configured, or you may have specified an invalid proxy server, or the web you are accessing may have been deleted. HTTP error 404.
While the Web Publishing Wizard can create subdirectories when you post files to an established directory on a destination server, it cannot create the Web directory it is posting to. The Web Publishing Wizard is designed only to post files to an existing directory. To avoid this error message, select the "Add to an existing FrontPage Web" check box, and verify that the directory listed in the "Destination FrontPage Web" box exists on the destination server.

Home Page File Names
