Hi,
some customer using Frontpage 2003 is getting this error when publishing her website.

405 Method Not Allowed
The requested method PROPFIND is not allowed for the URL /index.html. Apache/1.3.37 Server at www.******.com Port 80

Any ideas why this happens and how to solve?

Thanks,
Anton.

propfind error with Microsoft Expression Web: Can't view remote web site

I am trying to view a remote website with Microsoft Expression Web, but I am getting the following error repeatedly:

Below is the message that the server returned. For more information, contact your Internet service provider or web server administrator.

I already had frontpage extensions installed, but ran Cpanel Install Frontpage Extension anyhow:
