Apache 1.2.4 & Frontpage Extensions & Linux

Posted on 1997-11-20

I have install fp ext on my apache web server.  The installation seemed to go okay.

When I try to create a web using Frontpage Explorer (FP 97) I get a POST error.  However, the site appears to be created, i.e. all of the directories (_vti_*) are created on my linux machine, but I can't edit the site.

The interesting part is...  if I fiddle with the fp ext install/unintall program...  recal. links, etc... I'm not exactly sure of the order of events, but eventually I can get it to allow me to edit the site again.  Yet, I still can't add a new site without going back and fiddling with the fp admin program.

I think it may have something to do with disk/file rights.

MY QUESTION:  What are all of the filenames (and/or directories) that are modified when a new site is created?

To me it seems that the rights are not set correctly on a file/dir that is modified only during creating a new site, since once I can edit previously created sites (after "fiddle").

All files in the WWW area are owned by the server user (a user dedicated to the server). When you install the frontpage extensions, did you make sure you did that as the server user? If you did it like root, then there is a permissions/owner problem and I suggest you reinstall as the server user or changes owner of all files and dirs. If you installed as your own user the problem is the same. The reason you cant update and change things is beacuse the serve rdoesnt own all its files.
