Installing FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions

In order to use Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Extensions in conjunction with your Virtual Server, you must do the following:
  1. Purchase the Microsoft FrontPage client software and install it on your own PC. Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Extensions are compatible with
    FrontPage 2002, 2000, and 98 Client Programs.

  2. Connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and type the following command.
    % vinstall frontpage           
    You will be prompted to answer a few questions before the server extensions will be installed.

    You do not need to remove previous versions of the
    FrontPage extensions to install the FrontPage 2002 Extensions. Older versions will be upgraded to the new version.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If you have Virtual Subhosts configured on your Virtual Server, you will need to move them to the ~/usr/local/etc/httpd/vhosts directory before you can successfully install and use the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.
You may use the vhostmv command to help you move your virtual subhosts:
% vhostmv
This command will move your virtual subhost home directories, and attempt to rewrite the <VirtualHost> and access configurations in the web server configuration files.

Backup your files before using the vhostmv command!!!

This has been tested with as many different virtual subhosting configurations as we can think of, but perhaps not your particular configuration!
If you choose to manually move your virtual subhosts to the ~/www/vhosts directory, you will need to create access controls for the ~/www/vhosts directory in you web server configuration file (~/www/conf/httpd.conf).

Removing FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions
To remove the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions from your Virtual Server, use the vuninstall command.
%  vuninstall frontpage
