Ok, so here is the problem.
When a client tries to publish with Front Page for each domain they get the error message:
“This operation requires author permission for DOMAINNAME:80”
like the user name or pass word is wrong.
We have verified that the usernames and passwords are correct.
THINGS DOMAINS HAVE IN COMMON:
1. The new AddOn domains can not be published with FrontPage but can login in with FTP.
2. This problem is server wide NEW DOMAINS which have been added to 3 different accounts and all have the same problem.
3. Any domains which were added in the last 15 - 89 days will not publish with FrontPage.
4. Domains which have been on the server for 90 days or more still publish with FrontPage.
Considering I can log in and upload with FTP but not Publish withFrontPage, it stands to reason that there something wrong with the upgraded version of Cpanel when installing FrontPage Server Extensions.
Have tried reinstalling FP extensions via the installer from http://layer1.cpanel.net
One thing we learned the hard way is that if you uninstall frontpage extensions in cpanel for the account or the server it removes the frontpage .htaccess pages. This is a big problem because we have over 400 domains on this server most using frontpage. if this action removes the frontpage .htaccess pages we would have to rebuild more than 350 .htaccess pages one by one.
Does anyone know how to protect these files so they do not get removed by a cpanel FP Reinstall or uninstall?
Thanks in Advance
