Web Server - uploading Frontpage web - will there be problems??

hiya All,

New to this Web site stuff.

Will be installing Fedora's latest O/S (including Apache) - onto a spare PC

Then... Gulp... setting up a Web server.


Designing a Web site using WINDOWS FRONT PAGE 2002:
* Simply easiest/quickiest way to knock up a basic site.
* There won't be any MS ACCESS links etc.
* I hope to use MySQL backend simple database etc. instead


Will there be problems getting this "WINDOWS FRONT PAGE 2002" web site to work properly on an apache Web server?

I really just want to knock up the Basic layout, then maybe stick in the PHP/PERL Tags myself etc. (Once I learn what I'm doing! Smilie )


Please advise
Martin


PS:
Great site - very intuitive for a UNIX newbie! Smilie

I'm not an expert user on frontpage but I'm not really sure microsoft products work really well with apache or unix/ linux products in general. And as for using php/ perl tags, these are not tag-based languages. Coldfusion is. Maybe it is better to set this up on a Windows platform with IIS/ SQL server or access or even MySQL for windows.

The most common layouts for webservers with scripting or programming languages are:

1/ apache/ php/ perl/ mysql on linux or unix
2/ apache/ tomcat/ j2ee/ oracle (or whatever database) on linux or unix
3/ IIS/ ASP/ SQL server on windows
4/ IIS/ Coldfusion/ SQL server on windows

I think frontpage would fall under number 3.

Should work, though

If you're simply using Frontpage to generate the content, I wouldn't think Apache would have any trouble rendering it, as long as you tell Apache where the content is, and all of the internal links resolve properly.

Just my $0.02

Lots of people use Apache with MS Front Page extentions.

See this Google search.....

Apache+fp

Ah, yes, I'd forgotten about apache+fp.

Thanks for the input guys!

...Do I need to pay for these FP extensions - as MS proprietory stuff?....

... wheres the best place to get them?


Is postnuke a better option altogether?

Thanks for the replies - appreciated! Smilie
