1) can you give us a url?
2) can you create copies of the files in question and add a .txt extension, and then put them to the server - so that we can read the ASP code?
Above is the test link to the index page with the missing navigation bar. How do I access the server?
Because ASP is executed on the server, we can not see the ASP code in your pages so it's difficult to say what is wrong. My suggestion is to copy the SAMPLE_01_index.asp to a page called SAMPLE_01_index.txt. Then upload it to the server and give us the url to that text file. Then we will be able to read the code.
>How do I access the server?
I'm not sure what you are asking here. You must be accessing the server now to publish, right? Can you clarify this?

I'll start you out - you're on an Apache server running on some kind of
Unix OS. In general, Apache doesn't run ASP. Either switch to PHP,
or switch to an IIS server.
 As with so many things, there is a possibility - the software
formerly known as ChiliSoft:
There are (or at least were) also some open source projects attempting to
run ASP pages on Apache/*nix. However, I've never heard good reports
about trying this particular combination.

In addition to the other replies, I see the following to instructions
in your source code:
<!-- #include file="resources/module.asp" -->
The fact that those two instructions are appearing in your source code
means that the server is not parsing the file for the includes. As Joe
mentions, typical Unix/Linux Apache servers do not execute ASP without
a third party application running on the server. Even with a third
party application, the include instructions may not be executed
because the include directive is not a part of the ASP server
technology. When using ASP on a Windows server, the server will parse
those instructions before executing the ASP code.
Good to know. Thanks for the insight. I'll see what options we have for converting. Appreciate it!
