    Frontpage 2002 Server Extensions (Linux)

    Here is my scenerio. I have a webserver that is hosting virtual sites using Redhat 9.0. I want to load frontpage server extensions to the already existing virtual sites without affecting the sites.

    Here is what I have done so far.

    Downloaded the FP 2002 and the installation script from

    Opened the file /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and set AllowOverride to "All" in place of "None"

    change the user apache and Group -1 in the httpd.conf file to the User name and Group I wish to use

    Set the rights of /var/log/httpd to 755 (chmod 755 /var/log/httpd)
    Open the file /var/www/error/ HTTP_UNAUTHORIZED.html.var and added the text below.

    Content-language: en
    Content-type: application/x-httpd-cgi
    <!--#set var="TITLE" value="Authentication required!" -->
    <!--#include virtual="include/top.html" -->

    This server could not verify that you are authorized to access the URL "<!--#echo encoding="url" var="REDIRECT_URL" -->". You either supplied the wrong credentials (e.g., bad password), or your browser doesn't understand how to supply the credentials required.

    <!--#include virtual="include/spacer.html" -->

    In case you are allowed to request the document, please check your user-id and password and try again.

    <!--#include virtual="include/bottom.html" -->

    Ran the script from the untared tarball

    Gave Usernames when prompted in scripts.

    I now have a directory with files and subfolders under /usr/local/frontpage

    I was now wondering if i could use the owsadm.exe under the /usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/bin directory to add the frontpage extensions to each virtual site.

    Also, my virtual sites are located under /var/www/html/ directory.



    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Ok, just incase anyone else was wondering, I think I might have figured it out.

    ./owsadm.exe o install p 80 m s /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf u fpuser pw password xu webuser xg webgroup

    ./owsadm.exe o install p 80 m s /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf u fpuser pw password xu webuser xg webgroup

    I believe you would have to do this for every domain.

    If this is incorrect, please correct me.
