Server timing out when publishing large sites.

There are a number of reasons why FrontPage hangs, but the biggest reason is related to the amount of data in your WWW directory, both in file size and in the number of files/directories. The more files/directories and size of data, the longer it will take FrontPage to log in. Large amounts of data or a large number of files or directories can cause FrontPage to severely hang and even timeout. If there are connectivity problems between your ISP and our servers, then this can also lead to FrontPage hanging or even timing out. When you experience this problem, we recommend creating a number of smaller subwebs (or child webs) to break your web site up so it does not take FrontPage as long to run through its configuration or recalculate links.
