Frontpage hangs when publishing via ftp mode
Category: File Management
I am trying to publish to ftp using Frontpage. I am comfortable with Frontpage's GUI, but I understand that Inmotion does not recommend using frontpage extentsions. I can can connect using the Frontpage ftp tool but then it just hangs. Any ideas?

As Tim previously stated, Microsoft no longer offers any support for Microsoft FrontPage. It's not that we don't recommend FrontPage Extensions, it's that we don't recommend FrontPage period, simply because the software is old and outdated.
You are however more than welcome to use FrontPage! If you decide to use FrontPage, make sure of the following two items:
1. <a class="ddtut" href="http://support.inmotionhosting.com/userguides/cpflash_x3/cpanel_x3_fp.swf">You install FrontPage extensions.</a>
2. You'll want to <strong><a class="ddtut" href="http://support.inmotionhosting.com/userguides/fp/frontp_publish_http.swf">publish over HTTP</a></strong>. Do not use FTP mode in conjunction with FrontPage Extensions, as you're bound to have some issues.

Thanks for posting your question. I'm more than happy to assist you today. FrontPage is no longer supported by Microsoft but you can still use it on our servers. You need to make sure you have installed FrontPage extensions through cPanel. If you have done this, I'd also try removing them and then re-installing them as well.
Here's a link to a video on installing FrontPage Extensions:

Also, you may want to check your publishing settings to make sure they are correct. Here's another video tutorial on publishing your website via FTP using FrontPage:
