    I got a bunch of folders mixed up and ended up deleting all my folders (that they let you delete...not "garbage" for example)...but now all I want to do is start from scratch and I can't seem to. My Frontpage Extensions won't install because I don't have certain folders...and Frontpage wont create them or anything like that when I try to upload....:confused:

    How can I recouperate my "html_public" and all those other folders that I deleted (But actually need now I guess)?

    Is there anyway to start from scratch or somehow to just reinstall those folders with all the necessary files?

    Thanks a lot guys/girls, in advance....I'm losing it here!
    :(

    PS. I'm talking about folders in my File Manager.

    In Cpanel > FP Extensions (for the account in question) you can remove them, then re-add them. This should re-install the dir/files required by FP -- without removing anything else.

    Thanks...I tried that before...and this is what I got when I tried to reinstall...

    Attempting to install Frontpage extenstions ......

    Frontpage 5 installer loaded ok..
    Scanning httpd.conf.Done
    touch: creating `/home/emceehel/public_html/.htaccess': No such file or directory
    chown: getting attributes of `/home/emceehel/public_html/.htaccess': No such file or directory
    Removing .htaccess files
    find: /home/emceehel/public_html: No such file or directory
    Note: Local version of Apache must use the FrontPage Apache patch.
    Starting install, port: www.emceehelp.com.

    Error: Cannot create folder "_vti_pvt".




    Frontpage extensions are currently: not installed



    So what do I do now? anyone?? :confused:

    After seeing a msg. like that, my first thought would be there is a problem with this account in the httpd.conf file. Either in the paths or possible the ownership settings.

    # /usr/local/apache/bin/httpd -t

    That command will give you a quick overview to any problems in the httpd.conf file. Fix any that are and if the account in question does not show as having a problem, check the httpd.conf file for yourself to verify.

    http://dnsreport.com/tools/dnsreport.ch?domain=emceehelp.com

    That link shows there are some problems with the account (cannot connect to mailserver) which could also be related to this problem.

    If worst comes to worst, remove the account, delete any references to it (by doing a 'locate <accountID>, then re-install. Sometimes, in order to fix something, we have to remove all previous references to it.

    Thanks a lot Rob...now one last stupid question:

    How would I go about removing my account and deleting references to it without losing my fee that I paid to get it up in the firstplace?. Will I have to pay again? How would I delete it in the firstplace? Anyone I should contact?

    Thanks again guys.
