Microsoft FrontPage: Installation

bullet Install Frontpage 2003
To install the Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions on your Virtual Private Server, run the following command from your server's SSH or Telnet command prompt:
% vinstall frontpage

NOTE: You do not need to remove previous versions of the FrontPage extensions to install the FrontPage 2003 Extensions. Older versions will be upgraded to the new version.

The Microsoft FrontPage 2003 Extensions are compatible with FrontPage 2003, 2002, 2000, and 98 Client Programs.

If you have Virtual Subhosts configured on your Virtual Server, you will need to make sure they are in the usr/local/etc/httpd/vhosts directory before you can successfully install the FrontPage Server Extensions.

You may use the vhostmv command to help you move your virtual subhosts if necessary.

% vhostmv

This command will move all your virtual subhost home directories, and attempt to rewrite the <VirtualHost> and access configurations in the web server configuration files. Use caution!!! Backup your files before using the vhostmv command!!! It has been tested with as many different virtual subhosting configurations as we can think of, but perhaps not your particular configuration!

If you are only moving some subhosts, or if you want to manually move your virtual subhosts to the ~/www/vhosts directory, and your VPS was setup prior to July 1, 1999, it is likely that a <Directory> directive will need to be created at the bottom of your ~/www/conf/httpd.conf file (or at the bottom of your ~/www/conf/access.conf file if you have three separate web server configuration files). The <Directory> direct ive you may need to add is as follows:

<Directory /usr/local/etc/httpd/vhosts>
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks Includes
AllowOverride All
order allow,deny
allow from all
