    Hello,

    I have NOT got frontpage compiled with apache and I have it removed from my default feature list, however when creating a new package the _vti_bin (etc.) files are still being placed in the users home directory.

    Also, under /usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/ there are all of my sites listed. I wish to have frontpage completely disabled but it seems there's no way?

    Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Just remove the directory /usr/local/frontpage from the server.

    It will display an error like the following

    it's because the attributes are set on that file. Remove the attributes with the command:

    then remove the directory once again

    BTW, the skeleton directory of cPanel is /root/cpanel3-skel/ from where you can remove the _vti_ directories so they won't be added to the newly created accounts.

    I did check the cpanel3-skel directory and there were no files under public_html.

    I've removed that directory as you mentioned and created a test account and all worked without and unwanted files/folders.

    Thank's a lot for your help.
