Yes it it is... it took me a while to find that one... thats the trouble with not using linux all the time... its takes time to learn where to look for things.... I know that you sort of said that installing frontpage was not the best idea... but I have gone for it anyway... the trouble I have now is that the setup script exits.... I am running the one that camw with the frontpage.tar... after it asks me what install to use (install 3) it tells me that my apache version is to new press "Y" to continue, after pressing "Y" it ends the install.... the one thing I need to try is to run the scripts from the command line instead of just double clicking on it and see if there is an error... I will post whatever I can come up with.

Thanks

I dont mean to sound un-appreciative I think the work you have done on ISPConfig has been grade A.... but to have an option in there to enable FrontPage and then not fully explain or offer documented help guides like the perfect-setup guides on how to get it working is a little strange to say the least... how ever trying to get it working my self is teaching me a lot about how to use Linux ect.....

As I said you do a great job with everything, perhaps something for you to think about doing in the future ( A short manual/guide on these small add-ons)

Thanks

Maybe you not fully understand frontpage for linux. This package has been made available by microsoft but it does not really integrates itself into linux. If you use frontpage with FTP in the same website it will mess up your permissions. ISPConfig supports frontpage because some poeple needed it, but this does not mean that we have to provide howtos for that. You are free to write a howto on that topic when you finished your installation.

I've installed frontpage on a debian box some time ago and it took me about a day or more to get it working. Mabe the better solution might be to remove the frontpage support from ISPConfig at all.

Maybe remove it as you say.... it gets a little confusing when you offer an option in your software but as you say frontpage is not really a linux thing... I totaly agree... all I am trying to do is offer my customers as many options as I can.... if it turns out that frontpage is too unreliable on my hosting server then it will be taken off..... And if I do manage to get it working I will put a guide on the forum....

I cant stress enough that I wasn't having a go at you falko or the software... as I said you do a great job....... it just fustrating why software just doesn't integrate with each other.

Thanks for all your help on everythin.

Cool

Frontpage is a mess, and if you ask me it should be forbidden. I hate it, and I don't feel like writing a howto for these damn special MS solutions that the world hasn't been waiting for...

However, it's in ISPConfig because there are people who insist on using it. They can do so if they know how to install Frontpage on Linux, but we cannot support them because this setup is a mess even for Till and me... I hope you understand my point... I think MS did this Frontpage-for-Linux thing not really whole-heartedly...

To be honest after reading the last few posts and having yet another look on the web for any hints and how to do it... I feel that it may not be the best option for me to try..... I think its probably best to not install frontpage. Lets face it I no nothing compared to you two and if you have probelms what will I get..... and I really dont want to install my system again... I have jsut got it to a point where everything works.....

Thanks
