What about the things that they don't explain :)

Actually copying a web project is not a very though process.

1. Make sure that you have FrontPage Server Extensions properly
installed on the server you want to copy your project to.

2. From visual studio .net IDE choose
-> copy project
-> destination project folder: http://www.example.com/ (where you want
to copy the proj)
-> web access method FrontPage
-> copy only files needed to run this application.

3. Click OK. Enter your credentials.

4. Start staring at the progress bar (that's what we developers do
most of the time, isn't it :) )


Do you recevie some sort of error message?
