    I am assuming that frontpage extensions are not installed with ISPConfig??

    Is it simply a case of installing the extension on the server from files downloaded and then everything integrates and works.

    Thanks

    Yes.

    Yes and No. It will integrate automatically in ISPConfig but the installation of frontpage extensions and geting them to work properly is not easy. Also be aware the usage of FTP and Frontpage in the same website may cause proböems with file permissions.

    I am using FC3 + ISPConfig.

    When I install fp50.linux.tar.gz frontpage extension,the following error message appears:

    Platform is linux.
    Uncompressing/Untarring file /root/fp50.linux.tar.gz into /usr/local...

    Upgrading/Installing the extensions

    Which version of Apache will you be using? (1.3 or 2.0) 2.0

    Where is the current apache control file (apachectl) located: []/root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl
    Currently running Apache/usage: /root/ispconfig/httpd/bin/apachectl (start|stop| restart|fullstatus|status|graceful|configtest|help)
    Checking for previous versions of FrontPage Server Extensions to upgrade...
    You have no previous versions of FrontPage Server Extensions installed.
    There are no settings to migrate!

    Does anyone know how to rebuild Apache with mod_so module? Or should I just skip the error message and run frontpage extension without fail?

    You're trying to integrate Frontpage into the ISPConfig Apache. This is totally wrong! :eek: You have to integrate it into your main Apache!

    I had tried to integrate it into my main Apache in /usr/sbin/apachectl,but the error message was the same as I posted above.

    I don't know how to rebuilt my Apache with mo_so module.

    Yes,I did. But the fp50.linux.tar.z file downloaded from microsoft seems to support Red Hat Linux 6.0,7.0 only. I am using Red Hat FC3 and having the above problem as posted above during the installation of frontpage extension according to microsoft's script.

    Is your installation note still valid for frontpage 2002 + Red Hat FC3 environment?

    It should be, maybe with little modifications, but I haven't tried to set up Frontpage for years now, because it's a mess, and if there's any possibility I recommend to not use it... You have an FTP server on your system, that's all you need. :)

    I had once installed Frontpage 2002 first and then installed ISPConfig, at that time I was able to publish web from Frontpage to ISPConfig site. But, as you said, it was a mess, because all the webpages were located in root directory of the user instead of default /web. This happens when I use FTP server to upload webpages too. I have to change the directory to /web every time before uploading.

    How can I chage the default directory of FTP to /web of each user?

    If you use Proftpd, you can put
    Code:
    DefaultRoot ~/web
    instead of
    Code:
    DefaultRoot ~
    into /etc/proftpd.conf and restart Proftpd.

    I put DefaultRoot ~/web into both /etc/proftpd.conf and /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf, and restart proftpd. But the default ftp directory of each user is still the same as the following:
    ./
    ./web
    ./tmp

    Are you sure you replaced all occurrences of
    Code:
    DefaultRoot ~
    ?

    I found another line in proftpd.conf:

    DefaultRoot ~ !adm


    Should I change it to:

    DefaultRoot ~/web !adm

    Yes, do it. BTW, you need only one of these lines so you can delete the other ones.

    If I delete "DefaultRoot ~/web !adm" from /etc/proftpd.conf and remain the last line "DefaultRoot ~/web" in /etc/proftpd.conf. Will /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf be changed to "DefaultRoot ~/web" automatically or should I chage it manually too?

    /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf should be included in /etc/proftpd.conf so you don't need it in /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf.

    I know /etc/proftpd_ispconfig.conf is included in /etc/proftpd.conf. But there is also a line "DefaultRoot ~" in proftpd_ispconfig.conf. Should I delete the line or just change it to "DefaultRoot ~/web"?

    Comment it out and restart Proftpd.
