You may have to pull your website files from the server.

I also use FP to build my sites but I recently started FTPing them to the server. This real easy....and better than using FP to "publish" your site.

There are many free FTP programs you can download.

Using FTP instead of "publishing" from FP you will be able to pull your files from the server to you computer more easily.

pulling them would mean to 'publish' or download?

exactly...how would I do this?? :(

Hello,

 

From the sounds of it by pulling he means downloading - you can do this through your file manager depending on what type of file it is, however I would recommend using a FTP program as it would be allot easier and less time consuming on your part. There are several free FTP programs out there some better than others but I will let you decide on the right one for you rather than suggesting one that I use. There is a list of FTP programs as well as all of the documentation you will need to get introduced to using FTP programs located in the help site at:

 

http://www.totalchoicehosting.com/help/ftppage.htm

 

As far as the issue at hand - I personally use macromedia suite and have never used FrontPage - you say that you reinstalled windows and now frontpage cannot find your site.. do you mean that there was a copy of the site on your computer which you used frontpage to edit? or it cannot find the actual website on the TCH servers?

 

If it is unable to find it on your computer - this would be because you reinstalled windows more than likely - you will need to download your website's files from your account using FTP / file manager in order to have them back on your hard drive.

 

If it is the later - did you configure all of the options in frontpage? Did you make sure you did not make a typo on your username / password / website fields?

 

Also, please take note that if you use FTP this can and more than likely will mess up FrontPage unless you do an entirely new publish.

 

Just a few things that came to mind.
