Installing the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions
To install the Microsoft FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions on your Virtual Server, connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and complete the following steps.

  1. If you have the Microsoft FrontPage98 Server Extensions already installed, you must remove them before installing the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions. Use the fp98uninstall command.

    % fp98uninstall

  2. If you have Virtual Subhosts configured on your Virtual Server, you will need to move them to the ~/www/vhosts directory before you can successfully install the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions.

    You may use the vhostmv command to help you move your virtual subhosts.

    % vhostmv

    This command will move your virtual subhost home directories, and attempt to rewrite the <VirtualHost> and access configurations in the web server configuration files. Use caution!!! Backup your files before using the vhostmv command!!! It has been tested with as many different virtual subhosting configurations as we can think of, but perhaps not your particular configuration!

    If you choose to manually move your virtual subhosts to the ~/www/vhosts directory, and your Virtual Server was setup prior to July 1, 1999, it is likely that a <Directory> directive will need to be created at the bottom of your ~/www/conf/httpd.conf file (or at the bottom of your ~/www/conf/access.conf file if you have three separate web server configuration files). The <Directory> directive you may need to add is as follows:

    <Directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/vhosts>
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes
    AllowOverride All
    order allow,deny
    allow from all

  3. Use the fp2kinstall command to install the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions. You will be prompted to answer a few questions before the server extensions and FrontPage Apache Module will be installed.

    % fp2kinstall

    NOTE: Do not use Ctrl-C to prematurely stop the installation. Doing so may create errors in your web server configuration file. You should allow the installation to fully run its course and close properly.

Removing the Server Extensions
To remove the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions from your Virtual Server, use the fp2kuninstall command.

% fp2kuninstall
