    Unhappy Frontpage 2003 problem

    I just started a job where my predecessor had set up an intranet website with general useful company information and also a link to a private website that only administrators could access with their credentials to see passwords and such.

    The server hosting it died so I hosted a backup of the website on a new server and I have encountered a problem.

    The web server hosts the site in a folder called "wwwroot" just fine, but the link to the private website "wwwroot2" doesn't work in a browser even though the link works in Frontpage 2003 in preview mode.

    Any ideas on how I can fix this?

    Is it possible for you to post a link to the first site, the one in wwwroot? Would it also be possible for you to post a link to the 'private' website? I don't need access to that private website, being able to just get to a page that asks for a user/pass is plenty sufficient. Where are these websites hosted? Don't name any other webhosts, but are they hosted here or not? I don't think they are, but I and the other members here would be glad to help you out. Note that some suggestions may not work for you due the file structure differences between this webhost's computers and the one(s) that host your website(s).

    Welcome to the Forums here!

    Thanks for the reply, snowmaker. Unfortunately I cannot post a link to the site because it is only available inside our intranet, hosted on an ancient Server 2003 machine. Maybe the problem is that I only published the wwwroot folder and not wwwroot2? Do you know if this is the problem how to publish two websites in IIS for Server 2003? I'm still confused as to why the link to the private wwwroot2 site works in preview mode, but not in a browser?

    I don't think I will be available to help you much, but can you at least post the source code of the first site? Feel free to star out any private information on that site, I just need to see the link to the second site. As a shot in the dark, I would guess that link is to the copy of the private website that resides on your local machine, not to the copy that is on your network. As far as helping you with IIS or Server 2003, I'm afraid I have nothing to say, I am not familiar at all with those.

    Here is the top frame on the page. The 2nd to last line above </p> with
    Code:
    <a target="_top" href="../wwwroot2/index.htm">
    is the link to the private site. It looks valid to me. Go up one directory, go into wwwroot2 and open index.htm.

    Code:
    <html>
    
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Language" content="en-us">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">

    Try using an absolute path to wwwroot2.

    Your post above got caught into the 'newuser post moderation queue'. I'm not exactly sure why that post got snagged into it, but your other posts didn't (but should have).

    You know what bud, with the differences between the file structures of a Windows server and the *nix servers used here, I really couldn't tell you how to do it. I'm sure that another user here might be able to help you more, but since this forum isn't too active, more replies might take awhile.

    Sorry I wasn't able to help you.
