    Are you trying to install the FP Extensions through the Control Panel/WHM Manager or from the command line (using /scripts/setupfp5)? What does the VirtualHost entry look like for this domain in the httpd.conf file?

    This was a client trying to add FP to his sub-domain. He is doing this via cpanel.

    I have a similar problem. Customer is able to install FrontPage extensions just fine on his main account. When customer tries to use cPanel to install FrontPage extensions on his Add-on Domain, he gets:

    Starting install, port: 80, web: "addonnet".

    Error: Configuration file "": value "FrontPageRoot" not found.
    Setting Password
    Error: Configuration file "": value "FrontPageRoot" not found.
    Bad file descriptor

    Starting userroles, port: 80, web: "addonnet".

    Error: Configuration file "": value "FrontPageRoot" not found.
    Bad file descriptor


    Adding the user addonnet with their ftp password!
    Frontpage passthough auth enabled!



    (I replaced the real username of his add-on domain with the word addonnet)

    Any ideas would be appreciated. No matches for this here on the forums, so am going to start googling.

    No luck googling.

    I removed the add-on domain, then added it back. Still didn't work.

    Then I reinstalled FP extensions for the customer's main account. Then attempted to install FP extensions on their add-on domain and IT WORKED.

    Why, I don't know.

    Welcome to the wide world of using microsucks software on linux/unix!!!

    FP extensions on linux has always been flaky at best and really do not look for it to get any better.

    Easiest way I have found to fix a troublesome fp install that defys all attempts to fix by uninstalling and reinstalling is to delete all <path to web root>/_vti* directories

    delete all .htaccess files

    delete the <domainname>.cnf file in /usr/local/frontpage

    and then reinstall

    If you really want to have fun try configuring unix services for windows.

    Its worse than FP about being flaky

    Attempted to use it to setup a NFS server on a win2k3 Box, Ended up going with a 3rd party NFS server.

    Now before I get flamed for using NFS on windows I had a old promise sx6000 raid card that does not support linux very well but works damn good for a low disk io archive server and hate to throw away hardware :D
