I have a client whose website I have managed for 10 years but now they want to do it themselves. What is the easiest way to transfer the site (as in code) to them. The page was created with FrontPage and I am not sure what they will use, but I need to start somewhere.

Thanks in advance!

Hi

just copy everything in the var/www/html directory plus if you are using a database copy var/lib/mysql.
They can then use this to transfer all the files they need. Not sure how to go about email accounts though.
cheers

If they wish to now maintain the site themselves then why don't you simply supply them with the username password combination for the account and let them log in and grab the files to their computer. That way it gets them used to setup.
