Depending on which version of FrontPage you are using, the directions will be different but the principle is this: You can backup your website by getting the files from the server using FTP. Here's a link to a quick tutorial/guide on publishing/FTP'ing through FrontPage:


You can also do this outside of FrontPage, by using your web browser. Just point your browser to your FTP site (ftp://www.mysite.com, for example). Login with your username and password when prompted. Select the files/folders you want to backup, then choose to "copy" those files. Next, in a different window, navigate to the folder or drive on your PC where you want to back the files up to and chosee to "paste" them to that location. The transfer will begin and the files will be downloaded from the webserver straight to that folder.

Those are just two ways that you can do it. You could also use a 3rd part FTP software program such as WS FTP (http://www.ipswitch.com/Products/WS_FTP/) or CuteFTP (http://www.cuteftp.com/).

I hope that helps.

All the best,

The most important things to be backing up is your database plus anything that changes / gets added to regularly (e.g. product images).
Some time ago I found some neat software that will do ftp backups, create zip archives or just copy files around automatically. It's well worth the money http://www.hiteksoftware.com
