2. A new window will pop up giving you a selection of where to look for your web site (shown below). You can do one of two things to open your web. If this is the first time you have opened your web on the server you will have to type in your web site address in the Web Name or Folder Name field. If you have already opened your web site on the server you can click on Web Folders or My Network Places depending on which operating system you are using and select your web site from the list. Once you have typed in the web address or selected it from the list then click Open. Your web site will then be opened in FrontPage. Remember that any changes you make to your web when you open it on the server are saved directly to the server. Be careful not to accidentally delete or change anything that you do not have a backup copy of on your hard drive.
