Apache on Solaris 2.5.1

Hello...I'm going to make this question worth as much as possible everyday and if someone can answer it now for me I'll for sure award you 100 points when I get them....I just really need this question answered...I'm running Apache and when I run a web component generated by Frontpage (this is more of a global config I think) I get "Method not supported" "Post to ~adamo/shtml.exe/index.html not supported"  anyone know how to get this working?  This is the best group I could find for this problem (I know it doesn't fit right in)  thanks...Adam

Well, actually '~adamo/shtml.exe/index.html' seems an invalid path.

Could you tell what you're trying to do? What is 'shtml.exe'?

Frontpage generates loads of HTML code specifically designed for its Windows NT IIS product.  That's what's happened here - you've tried to use a 'wizard' or whatever they call them (I avoid MS products whenever possible, and use vi for editing, so...) and since you are running Solaris and Apache, you can't use those features.

Hi...sorry that wasn't enough info....I'm installing the Frontpage server extensions (shtml.exe processes most of the cgis generated by frontage)...the path it executes is just like  another machine running the Enterprise server which works fine with the frontpage extensions....I just can't get past it in Apache....thanks..Adam

How does the <FORM> tag look like? What options are there (ACTION, METHOD)?

With apache POST has to be to a cgi executable, it would appear to be so in your case though you may not have told apache that .exe files can be executed as cgi executables. There have also been some problems associated with parsing post commands,
Apache 1.2 should have been released by the time you read this, I would suggest that you install it.
