Frontpage Extensions

Hi, I have a windows xp computer running iis5, with extensions installed, and several asp files that pull data from database and display them fine. I have just had to setup a new server, which is a windows 2000 server, and installed the extensions, but when i try to view the same asp files i get the message "Database Results Wizard Error
The operation failed. If this continues, please contact your server administrator."

i tested the query through frontpage on the new server, and it appears correct, what can be goind wrong, what have i missed...

Any help most appreciated..

Many Thanks
Yurov Ardyy

RE: Frontpage Extensions

Is access or whatever database you're using installed on the server?

RE: Frontpage Extensions

Hi, I found out what the issue was, i had to create a subsite, and then publish content to it, and it worked.

What i did before was just create folder and put the asp files in there.. but its working fine now.


Many Thanks
