Hello all...

I set up this as to protect against FollowSymLink type hacks...

<Directory "/home">
Options +All -FollowSymLinks +IncludesNOEXEC -Indexes +MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
AllowOverride All Options=ExecCGI,Includes,IncludesNOEXEC,Indexes,MultiViews,SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
</Directory>

I am having customers now who still use FrontPage running into problems. Anyone know what this could be? Does FrontPage require FollowSymLink? It does not seem to work with Options +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch in the .htaccess.

Thanks for any ideas :)

It appears a ticket was already submitted about this matter.

As the ticket basically mentioned, FrontPage does require FollowSymLinks to be enabled, and it will not work with SymLinksIfOwnerMatch in the .htaccess file.
