1. How do I get MS FrontPage extensions installed?
In order to use Microsoft FrontPage, you will need to tell us to install FrontPage extensions when you order your account. You will need to supply us with the username and password for your FrontPage extensions. Then, use the publish function in FrontPage to transfer your pages. The extensions can also be added at any time after the initial setup. To do this, fill out the support form at http://www.bizwebspace.com.au/support.shtml with your request. FrontPage usernames and passwords are the same as what you use for your siteadmin user.

2. How do I change my FrontPage username/password?
Fill out the support form at http://www.bizwebspace.com.au/support.shtml and give us the information you would like changed.

3. When opening or saving a FrontPage web with FP Explorer, it responds "Server TimedOut..Request could not be completed." What should I do?
This can be caused by having too many files in one directory (usually more than 250). It can also be caused by having too many web pages in the frontpage "web." These are common errors made by people new to FrontPage. The frontpage extensions begin to have difficulty with "webs" larger than 20MB, depending on how many files are there. What ends up happening is that the frontpage extensions cannot finish processing the entire "web" before the frontpage explorer times out waiting for a response. This is a problem with the design of FrontPage and isn't a problem with our server. The easiest solution is to move files into subdirectories. If it still continues to time out, you may have to split the web up into several smaller subwebs so that it doesn't have to process so much all at once. If neither of those solutions fixes your problem, please fill out the support form at http://www.bizwebspace.com.au/support.shtml , tell us what the problem is, and we'll fix it for you.

4. Can I use FTP and FrontPage on the same files?
Officially, no. If you know your way around Unix well, it can be done, but it is not recommended unless you know exactly what you're doing. There is the potential that you can destroy the FrontPage extensions on your account if you utilize FTP on a FrontPage enabled account. If you do mess up your FrontPage extensions, it usually means that we have to disable/re-enable the extensions and you have to upload your whole site again. Under extreme circumstances, it may also be required that your site be deleted and recreated altogether to get the FrontPage extensions operating properly again.

For those of you with the know how and daring, you can use FTP and FrontPage together by creating a separate directory with your FTP program that you only use FTP in and never edit with FrontPage. In general, unless you change the permissions on a file to 774 or higher, you cannot edit a file uploaded by FTP with FrontPage. The reverse is also true.
