I installed the 32-bit Debian Sarge with Frontpage extensions and ISPConfig. This is what I did.
I downloaded the fpprep.sh tool who will combine all the config files of apache2 to 1 file httpd.conf. I included the file /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf. This is, because when you run oswadm.exe without combining all config files to 1 file and select the serverconfigfile /etc/apache2/vhosts/Vhosts_ispconfig.conf you will get error messages like " ...... Vhosts_ispconfig.conf has no Port or ServerRoot directive."
I ran fp_install.sh and installed the root site on port 9090. This works! I can access the web through http://web.<domain>.nl:9090 and login on the site. When I want to enable the website www.test.nl
with frontpage through the website; when I press Submit it wants to download fpadmcgi.exe. ???
When I want to enable the website through the console, I first run the "fpprep.sh install" to combine the config files to httpd.conf. Then I run the following command:
/usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/bin/owsadm.exe -o install -u -s /etc/apache2/httpd.conf -m "www.test.nl" -u fpadmin -pw password -xu username -xg users -p 80
I get the the following error:
Note: Local version of Apache must use the FrontPage Apache patch.
Starting install, port: 80.
Creating web http://www.test.nl:80
The website is only activated administratively. When I enter the frontpage website I see www.test.nl:80
In the directory /home/www/web1/web/ there's only the directory vti_pvt
I ran fpprep.sh restore and restarted apache2. The site www.test.nl
is still not activated and I can not upload with frontpage. ?
Last but not least. ISPconfig uses the account admin for frontpage administration. I used fpadmin and I edited the config.lib.php to change the account. Also my oswadm.exe doesn't accept the variable -t apache2.0, maybe it's because I use a different version?? I don't know.
But after I enable the frontpage extensions in ISPconfig and set the fp password in de settings, the frontpage extensions are not enabled for www.test.nl
. Also in this case I ran fpprep.sh install first and after ISPconfig ran the command oswadm.exe, I ran fpprep.sh restore.
I'm just wondering how people get this mickeysoft extension to work, because I don't have a clue.... The comming days I'm still gonna try getting this to work, so if you have an idea, please let me know.
