    FP is not working via cpanel nor whm:

    cpanel:

    When I try to publish, I receive an error saying that the FrontPage Server extensions are not installed. I checked in Cpanel, and they were showed as installed, but it was still not working. So, I uninstalled the FrontPage Server Extensions. Now, it will not let me reinstall them...it says "Error: You have to be a machine admin to perform this operation."

    whm:

    Error: You have to be a machine admin to perform this operation.
    Setting Password
    Frontpage passthough auth enabled!

    (uninstall)

    Starting uninstall, port: 80.

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

    Removing .htaccess files....Done
    Removing old frontpage files...Done


    Any fix?


    It may have been my fault when I ran this command this morning:

    find /scripts -perm 755 -exec chmod 750 {} \;

    How would I correct that?

    Do /scripts/upcp --force, then try to re-install again. Why would you run that command?

    Make sure you become familiar with the MANY exploits in the wild for frontpage extensions

    Frontpage hasnt been updated by Microsoft for 8 months or so - Its EOL End of Life - It has a BUNCH of BIG holes

    I learned the hard way

    FP stopped working for half of my customers that use it about 6 months ago after a windows update. FP is EOL a while back and the exploits make it very dangerous. I have not removed FP from the server becuase some customers still use it and it works for them. I plan to end FP support very soon. MS is coming out with a replacement, MS Expression Web and it is due to release on the same date as Vista. It is not server dependent and I will probably telling my customers to swith over to Expression Web.
