I've been asked to refresh a really old website (made I think around 2000 with Frontpage) with a new version.
So, after developing it locally, I jumped on the client's FTP and saw an unfamiliar folder structure: it's the damned Frontpage!
Here's a screenshot of the folder structure:
And there's a bunch of html files, omitted to save space.
I have no experience on Frontpage (luckily I guess), but my question is simple:
- Is it safe to delete everything in the root of the host and upload my new website?
- If anything goes wrong, will I be able to simple re-upload the old website and restore everything as it was before? I've read that uploading Frontpage websites via ftp is discouraged.
The website is hosted on a Linux server and has no database, it's a plain simple web hosting
