    Frontpage is not installed and never has been.

    So why do I get this error????????:

    Warning:
    Due to Frontpage Extensions currently being installed and enabled, password protected directories will not work. If you wish to use this feature instead of Frontpage, please disable the Frontpage extensions.

    Directory password protection relies on .htaccess files, similar to what FrontPage uses. This is why the check is run. I know you mentioned that FrontPage is not installed, but just to be sure, check for any _vti files in the public_html directory:

    Code:
    # ls -alh _vti*
    Also, examine the .htaccess file itself. Can you post the contents here?

    Hi,

    I just checked and don't have any of those files. and my htaccess just has the normal rewrites for wordpress that I use all the time. I'm going to submit a support ticket. Thank you for your help.
