If I create a new cpanel account without choosing a package, FrontPage Extensions are being setup for this account and I have all the vti directories & htaccess laying around at public_html.

I have "Frontpage" unchecked from both "default" & "disabled" Feature Lists from "Feature Manager"

How can I disable frontPage extensions permanently?

forgot to mention this, sorry.


apache is already compiled without frontpage

I've tried recompilining apache and upgrading "upcp" without success

On a server without frontpage compiled, creating an account without selecting a package nor configuring options manually, I am unable to reproduce this issue here.

Assuming these files are not in your cpanel3-skel directory (not sure why they would be) you might like to put in a ticket on this.
http://go.cpanel.net/bugs

If you do, please post back what cPanel Support finds out about this.

one of the servers I manage is also not creating all the vti directories. But after a closer look at the account creation report I get
Setting up Frontpage®......Done
This one also tries to install frontpage extentions but in vain. My quess is that, at some point all of my servers have compiled apache with frontpage extentions while this was not the case for this one


I don't know if I'm allowed to copy-paste the answer from support, but more or less this is normal for 11.30.6 (build 3) and it will be resolved in 11.32

Correct, WHM > Create a New Account in 11.30 automatically selects FrontPage extensions. This was changed in 11.31/11.32 to no longer auto check FrontPage for new accounts without a package selected via internal case 50064. It's easy to reproduce, simply go to WHM > Create a New Account in 11.30 and check "Select Options Manually" and you'll see it checked. This is unchecked on 11.32 in EDGE tier right now.
