Help. Newbie Questions about ASP Site Redesign
Hello, and thank you in advance for any help you may be able to offer me. I have a membership website for fantasy baseball. A partner of mine designed the site and has since left. The site works fine, but the design is really outdated. I want to redesign the site but have no experience with ASP. I have access to all the files and the database on the server, and would like to move the site to a new server as well. I am an experienced Access/VBA programmer but, like I said, know next to nothing about ASP. So...
1.) How can I tell if the site was written in ASP or ASP.Net? And does it really make a difference?
2.) Is there a WYSIWYG editor or something I could use to redesign the visual aspects of the site while leaving the "includes pages" (i think that's right), code and calls (links) to the database in tact?
3.) If I want to move the site to another server, can I just FTP the database and files to the new server (assuming of course it is a Windows server)?
4.) Do you have any general advice on how to best implement the design changes while not screwing up the code that makes the site work? Also, what are the easiest to use or learn apps (if available) for redesigning the pages n the site?
5.) Best way to move the site? Any special permissions or anything I need to be concerned with?
Thank you so very much for taking the time to review this post. Any advice you could give is greatly appreciated.
