Hello :)

The method to resolve both of those issues is included in the description you posted. It describes how to remove the "test" database, and how to disable Frontpage. Both issues are considered potential security concerns.

Thank you.

Disabling Frontpage will prevent users with Frontpage extensions installed on their account from uploading their website via Frontpage. This should not be too much of an issue because Frontpage has been end-of-life for several years. You can delete the database via phpMyAdmin or via SSH with this command:

mysql -e 'drop database test'

Thank you.

You may want to check and see if any of your accounts still utilize FrontPage for their websites. We will not be able to answer that question for you.

Thank you.
