We found a long debate about how to change the front page password. The most opinions went for stopping the front page service then reintialize it again which may cause some problems for the scripts. We found a better way by changing the password through the front page program itself and the password changed successfully, but we need to know if this way is secure and feasible. Any opinion....!?
I have observed the following when dealing with FrontPage:
1) Shutting down and Re-Adding Frontpage to a site tends to screw up things like scripts
2) Frontpage has to be tricked about CGI scripts
3) The frontpage passwords/groups are usually stuck in the following files:
The files exist for each subweb as well.
The PWD files can be edited with any .htaccess editor. The GRP files can be edited like a normal group file.
