Hello ,

one of my client received following error attempting to install FP extensions :

=================
Frontpage 5 installer loaded ok..
Scanning httpd.conf..X....X..X...X...X....X..X...X...X...X...X...X...X...X...X...X...X...X....X..X...X...X...X...X....X..X...X...X...X...X....X..X...X...X....X..X...X....X..X....X...X...X.
Removing .htaccess files
Note: Local version of Apache must use the FrontPage Apache patch.
Starting install, port: www.123.com.

Creating web http://www.123.com.
Error: The server extensions were unable to access the file &service.lck&. Please check the file permissions.

Starting chown, port: 80, web: &/&.

Error: The FrontPage Server Extensions are not installed on 'www.123.com:80'.
Searching for domains without mail extensions...
Setting Password
=================


He is receiving the error because the domain name is still not transferred , is it correct ? In other words is not possible to install fp extensions on an ip address , is it correct or am I wrong ?

thank you

Take a closer look at this line:

&Error: The server extensions were unable to access the file &service.lck&. Please check the file permissions.&
