Updated: August 22, 2005
Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 with SP1
You can upgrade Web sites to FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions from Microsoft from any previous version of FrontPage Server Extensions. During the upgrade process, changes are made to your Web site metadata and background structure, and some content is added to your Web site to enable it to work with FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.
After you have installed FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, you can upgrade your extended Web sites from the command-line, or by using Microsoft® SharePoint™ Administrator. To upgrade an extended Web site from the command-line, use the upgrade command.
In the Run dialog box, type cmd, and then click OK.
At the command prompt, change to the FrontPage Extensions directory by typing:
cd %CommonProgramFiles%\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\50\bin.
Then, at the command prompt, type:
cwsadm -o upgrade -p Port -m WebSiteURL
where Port is the optional port number of the site to be upgraded (defaults to port 80), and WebSiteURL is the URL for the Web site you are upgrading.
On the server, open Administrative Tools, and then click Microsoft SharePoint Administrator.
In the list of extended Web sites, next to the extended Web site you want to upgrade, click Upgrade.
In the Administrator user name box, type the user name for the administrator of the extended Web site.
