How to Edit a Web Site on a 64-bit Windows Server 2003 Using Expression Web
Can’t edit a Web site on a 64-bit Windows Server 2003 using Microsoft Expression Web (EW)? Microsoft has replaced FrontPage with EW. Many administrators who were running FrontPage server extensions on 32-bit Windows Server 2003 and have now switched to 64-bit Windows Server 2003 are running into a problem when they try to setup their Web sites and edit it in FrontPage. Microsoft no longer supports FrontPage server extensions on a 64-bit Windows Server 2003 so you can’t use FrontPage to edit Web sites on a 64-bit Windows Server.
Well, here are 3 basic steps that you need to take to edit a Web site using EW on a 64-bit Windows Server 2003.
1. In IIS 6.0, go to the Properties of the Web site and make sure that on the Directory Security tab both Anonymous users and Integrated Authentication is selected.
2. On the Home Directory tab, check the boxes for Read, Write, and Directory Browsing. This is required for WebDAV.
3. In IIS Manager, under Web Service Extensions, enable WebDAV extension.
You should now be able to edit your site with an account that has appropriate permissions.
