Frontpage works fine for editing websites on the server, but when I go to Tools -> Server -> Administration within Frontpage, I then enter the user/pass and get the following error:

Server Error: Unknown web server type " ". On Windows platforms, Microsoft Internet Information Server is supported. On UNIX platforms, Apache with the Microsoft FrontPage patch is supported.

I use Centos 3.3
CPanel 10.0.0.R7
Frontpage 2002

Please help.
Thanks.

I have ran both scripts. setupfp5 gave me this error :

/usr/local/apache/htdocs/public_html does not exist or is not a directory!

not sure if that will cause any major problems or not. I will have to check with my customer and see if the problem still exsists.

Thanks,
Mike

Hello Mike,

Is there any other apache folder (like apache2) in /usr/local/ directory?
If yes move the directory to apache2.off and run the scripts again.
It should solve your issue ;)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
mv /usr/local/apache2 /usr/local/apache2.off
/scripts/setupfp5
/scripts/initfpsuexec
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Let me know the status?.

Those 2 commands run successfully, but I still get the same error:

Server Error: Unknown web server type " ". On Windows platforms, Microsoft Internet Information Server is supported. On UNIX platforms, Apache with the Microsoft FrontPage patch is supported.

No, I only have one apache directory, just no public_html at the end of the tree.

If I attempt to reinstall the RPM I get a failed dependancy error. I am going to run a upcp and see if that will help any, I am running a slightly older release build

I have tried reinstalling frontpage and all other scripts but am still getting error while accessing the administration section via frontpage :

Server Error: Unknown web server type " ". On Windows platforms, Microsoft Internet Information Server is supported. On UNIX platforms, Apache with the Microsoft FrontPage patch is supported.

Has anyone found a solution yet.

Thanks

This is an extremely old post you replied to. FrontPage and Extensions have been discontinued and no longer supported by Microsoft, so you are probably better moving on to supported editors using FTP or WebDav
