The first step in publishing files is to set the publishing destination. There are several ways to manage your publishing destination.
For more information, see Publishing sites.
If you stop the publishing process in progress, files that have already been published will remain on the publishing destination.
By default, all files are marked for publishing. By using Publishing view in Microsoft Expression Web, you can choose which files will be published and which will be excluded from publishing.
In Publishing view, click Add a publishing destination.
In the Connection Settings dialog box, type the Name of the site.
Select a Connection Type:
FrontPage Server Extensions
In the Location box, type the Internet address, including the protocol, of the publishing destination that you want to publish folders and files to (for example, ftp://www.example.com). Type the directory for the web root.
For all connection types except File System, type the User name and Password of an account that has permission to publish to the location.
For FTP, SFTP, and FTPS connections, set the number of simultaneous connections. This setting can significantly reduce publishing time.
Check with your hosting provider before configuring this setting. Many providers limit the number of simultaneous connections. If you exceed that number, publishing speed may be reduced.
For FTP, SFTP, and FTPS connections, choose whether to Use Passive FTP. Some network configurations will work only with passive FTP mode turned on; others will work only with passive FTP mode turned off. Most network configurations will support both modes. The passive FTP mode is considered more secure.
