Apache + Frontpage

Posted on 2000-03-22
Last Modified: 2010-04-20

I've seen that it is possible to setup the Apache server so that is support Frontpage extensions. Can anyone point me to a download site (binaries preferred) and some installation instructions? I have a certain amount of experience with 'normal' Apache, and with IIS.

Many thanks,

if you're using FreeBSD simply do:
cd /usr/ports/web/apache13-fp
make install

However, if using some other os, you can find it here:
or another version:
or another version:
or I can send you the one used in FreeBSD.
I only used the FreeBSD one and the last one, so you'll have to choose the one you like.

Of course, you'll need to download the frontpage extensions from , I don't remember the url, it says in the docs I think.

Hope that it helps
