publishing web site

I'm having a hell of a time publishing my first VS 2005 web site. All it
tells me is publish failed. Is there any place that gives me a hint on why
it failed? I'm typing in the website address in the 'Target Location' box.

Thanks.

Are you using the publish command from visual studio?

If so - then the only time, this should fail is if your application
doesnt compile....

Can you give us more details as to the steps you are following?

Building the project succeeds fine.

When I try to Publish the project it fails. The location of the files is on
a remote server and I want to publish to this same spot on the remote
server. The target location I use is an http address that matches the file
location

This fails -
File Location: \\Ip here\testarea$\ProjectName
Web Publish Location: http://Ip here/ProjectName

This works -
File Location: \\Ip here\testarea$\ProjectName
Web Publish Location: \\Ip here\testarea$\ProjectNameWebArea

Can I not publish to an http:// address?

Also, do you HAVE to have Front Page server extensions installed on the
webserver? You shouldn't have to but it didn't work without them.

Thanks for any insight that anyone can provide.

re:

Sure you can. You don't need FPSE to publish web sites with VS 2005.

However, if you've setup the web site on the dev server as *requiring* FPSE,
then FPSE security, trinkets, etc. will be required by the production server when
you attempt to publish the site using FPSE.

Does your ISP *require* FPSE ?

If that not the case, I'd try *removing* the FPSE from both the dev server
*and* the production server...and trying the whole shebang again.
