A Nightmare: the Version Manager
Trouble in use the version manager? I can assure, sometime it WORKS!!!
Here you will find some hints about. Part of the content is the same posted on the
netobjects.npower.gen-discussion by “TheBox” the 11th November 2006 with some update.
Make sure you have the same update with nPower as the site you are working with NO9.x
Create the NOF9 file/web pages as per normal, then ensure you have filled out the "Versioning" information under Current Site Options (found under "Tools" "Options" "Current site" in top menu - then "Versioning" tab)
This is where you create a normal publish profile to your web server and the Repository path.
Check also if you have some missing assets, in that case, delete missing assets and the unused assets.
Wrong path, missing assets, FTP setting cause the following screenshots:
Then you click PUBLISH SITE icon at top as if you were just Publishing normally, check the Version Manager option and then click the Publish button
This will create a Rollback point, the /repository directory etc. automatically.
In some cases, the connection to the ftp server fail, go to “Publish setting”, click the advanced option and check the “passive mode” box in “Advanced FTP” tab and try again.
From the File menu, click on the “Version Manager, if all is running in the right way, you will be able to see the following screen shot:
Click on the “Export Connection credential” button in order to create the .NFC file for your customer
You then go into nPower and "Open from a Remote Template", point to the .NFC file and it will open that
file from your web server. You need to "Save As" to the hard disk as well at this point as you do in NOF9.
