    Hi,
    I am using FP2000 and I have PWS on my PC. How can you find how much space will my site take when I publish to the web?

    Thanks

    Well, it all depends on what your plans are for your site, how large you expect it to be, if you will be using any files outside of graphic and html files on your site and what you want to spend for hosting.

    Hi,
    Sorry my question was not clear.
    After I publish my site on PWS. Is there a way that we can tell from the published files how much space I need.

    Thanks

    erraps...use WIndows Explorer to browse to the folder that contains your website, let's call it "erraps". Click on "erraps" in the left hand side of Explorer and press ALT+ENTER (or right click and select properties). This will tell you how much large your site is.

    Thanks. I use to use Netobjects before. With Netobjects there is a folder "Local publish" I was not sure with FP2000.

    I think I just heard about what you are talking about. I don't use frontpage myself, but a friend of mine was complaining that they couldn't find the file either they were working on, or wanted to link to or something. Frontpage does something screwy with all the files. I know frontpage is easy and quick, but I'll tell you what I told him. Don't use it. He switched to a simple HTML editor ( http://arachnoid.com - arachnophilia), and hasn't had a question since. Takes a bit more figuring out, but his pages are starting to look better.

    However, FP still the most common HTML editors around! (in public usage, not particular webmasters)

    With FrontPage and PWS all the files on PWS are usually stored in a folder called webshare. Let's say your web is called erraps - your site should be in c:\webshare\wwwroot\erraps - presuming webshare is on your c:\ drive.

    Getting the properties on the erraps folder will tell you how big the site is. You can get the properties by right clicking on it and choosing 'Properties' from the pop-up menu.

    In your folder, along with all your web files there are a load of _vti... directories - i've found it best to leave these alone and DON'T delete them.

    One more newbe question.
    What is ODBC Database Support for 3 DNS mean?
    What's the difference between Access 2000 Databases Support and ODBC Database Support?
    If I have one Access Databases with multiple Tables do I need multiple ODBC connections?

    Thanks

    1. ODBC support for 3 DNS means you can have three DNS entries in the Registry.

    2. If you use ODBC to utilize your Access Database, there is no difference. If you use OLE DB and ADO to access the database this means they have installed the provider for Access 2000 which is faster and less resource intensive than ODBC or the provider for Access 95/97

    3. You only need one DSN per database whether it has 1 or 100 tables.

    SInce your mentioning DSN's I am going to guess your on an NT server and planning on utilizing ASP to generate dynamic pages. If that is the case, I recommend that you visit ASP 101 for beginner's lessons on how to do this. Using ODBC and DSN's are the least efficient means of accessing a database. By reading through the tutorials and articles at ASP 101 you can discover more efficient ways of doing this.
