recommend that you do not install FrontPage. Microsoft® discontinued support for FrontPage extensions on Linux servers in 2006. Exercise caution if you install FrontPage extensions, as they have been known to cause security issues.
Why are my index pages in FrontPage being created with a strange name ?
A: FrontPage looks in httpd.conf for the DirectoryIndex line. If you, for example, try to make the line easier to read such as:
DirectoryIndex index.htm index.html index.shtml index.php default.htm default.shtml default.php Then FrontPage will use the forward slash ( / ) rather than the actual index pages.
To fix, remove the slashes and put all index files on one line and restart Apache.
Client has problem uploading and publishing with MS Frontpage?
There are far too many reasons for this to even try to document, however;
if the client is using Windows XP and FP 2002, the following might help.
Have the customer add this registery setting under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE/Microsoft/Shared Tools/Web Server Extentions
- Right click Web Server Extentions.
- Make new DWORD value.
- Change name of new DWORD to wecctlflags.
- Edit the value of wecctlflags to 2.
FrontPage may not detect the proxy settings of Internet Explorer 5.0 and later.
How can I enable Frontpage on port 443 with SSL?
Run the following:
- /usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/bin/owsadm.exe -o install -p 443 -m domain.com -t apache-fp -xuser username -xgroup groupname -servconf "/usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf"
I get strange errors like sd(8,10) write failure, user limit block reached - when adding FP extensions, adding accounts, maybe others?
That says that the client is probably over their quota. Run the following script to see how much space the user is taking up compared to what is available:
How do I reinstall Front Page Extensions for the entire server? (updated - FP 5.2)
Update the extensions with:
- rpm -Uvh http://httpupdate.cpanel.net/fp/frontpage-5.2-0.i386.rpm
