Some weeks ago I reformatted and consequently lost my (editing) copy of my website. Using my Hostings control panel I attempted to d/load another copy. This has proved fruitless, I have used zip programmes and even resorted to a prog called Web CEO but to no avail. I was met with more or less irritation when I eventually rang my Hosting. I believe the cause is that originally I used Wxp to d/load and now am using Wme (for compatible reasons). A simple explanation would be appreciated, Im not tech minded and the frustration gets worse by the day.
with using Windows XP or ME - what you must do is imprt a copy of the site using the same software with which you first created the site. If that was FrontPage, then use FrontPage to import a copy from the server, as fourm member has said.
Once you have imported your site in FrontPage, go to 'File' and select 'publish'. This will produce a dialogue box where you can select a publishing location. Select a folder on your hard drive and follow the prompts. FrontPage will then make a local copy of the site.
Pardon me guys, im way outta my depth but whenever i had to do a format and reinstall and wanted my web site back i just put the letters ftp:// in front of the www. address, enter my password and voila, i can copy all files to a folder on my hard drive. Probaly way off the mark but my two pennneth's worth :-)
Thanks anyway Jonny, I did as the guys said but reckon I did something wrong as my website now has no borders so I have to rewrite the links. Im just hopeless at this. Im using Fronpage and got the Ed's advice wrong somewhere. Slowly getting there though, will look at your suggestion also.
