    Dear colleagues,

    I have had for a long time the problem with srm.config. This file either was deleted or erased during virus scan. Due to this problem the Hotlink protection is disabled which allows many spams to fill in my Inbox, Frontpage extensions are disabled too, which make my activities going slow.

    These are the notices coming out while trying to reainstall extensions:

    Attempting to install FrontPage extensions...

    Error: The server extensions were unable to access the file "srm.conf". Please check the file permissions.
    Setting Password
    Frontpage passthough auth enabled!

    FrontPage extensions are currently: not installed

    Or Hotlink Protection:

    Apache detected an error in the Rewrite config.

    fopen: Permission denied
    httpd: could not open document config file /usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf

    . Please try again.

    Can anyone tell me how to reinstall srm.config. I have this file in desktop but i do not understand the location where to install it (/usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf).

    I am having the same issue /usr/local/apache/conf/srm.conf .
    I am logged in as root.
    It's not writable.
    I am unable to delete it with rm -rf srm.conf.
    The user:group and file permissions all have question marks.

    ls -l
    ?---------  ? ?    ?        ?            ? srm.conf
    Same for:
    ?---------  ? ?    ?        ?            ? access.conf
    Thanks -Jason
