MS FrontPage2002® Extensions

Torna a Servizi...

Microsoft's FrontPage 2002 client software allows you to create a professional website with dynamic features including search engines, bulletin boards, e-mail forms, and more without any programming experience. The FrontPage 2002 server extensions work with the client software to "publish" the website on your account. FrontPage 2002 is the choice of a large number of web-developers because of its ease of use, functionality, and administrative control.

Since we have been a member of Microsoft's Web Presence Provider (WPP) program since April of 2001, you can be sure all of the functionality of FrontPage 2002 is offered through our service. Unlike other UNIX platform hosting providers, we offer full support for FrontPage 2002.

If you need help on how to connect to your account using FrontPage, click here. Assistance on using FrontPage 2002 on your account can be found in the troubleshooting section.

Install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions
If you wish to install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on your account, go to "FrontPage" link of your Domain Control Panel. The FrontPage 2002 server extensions will automatically be installed on your account.

Note: By installing FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, you will be able to administer your website using Microsoft FrontPage 97, 98, 2000 or FrontPage Express. There will be a number of files and directories installed into your account. There will especially be a number of directories starting with an underscore "_" installed into your public_html directory. There is no harm in installing FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, even if you never use FrontPage.

Remove FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions
If you wish to remove FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on your account, go to "FrontPage" link of your Domain Control Panel. Your FrontPage 2002 server extensions will automatically be removed from your account.

Note: By removing your FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, you will no longer be able to administer your website using FrontPage 97, 98, 2002, or FrontPage Express. However, you can always re-install the extensions directly from the control panel of your domain name. If you remove the FrontPage Server Extensions from your account, a number of files and directories pertaining to FrontPage will be deleted from your account. Removing the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions may cause portions of your website which rely on FrontPage to not function properly (FrontPage search engines, forms, etc.)! Leaving your FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions installed will not harm your website, even if you do not plan on using FrontPage for future web development.

It is important to understand that FrontPage is just an extension of your account. Just as use of FTP, Telnet, and your Doman Control Panel require a login (username) and password, so does FrontPage.

However, if you feel it very necessary to have a seperate password for Microsoft FrontPage, follow the directions below:

  1. Open FrontPage Explorer while on-line and connect to the remote server by entering your domain name (or IP address if your domain name is in the process of being setup/transferred) in the Web Server or File location box.
  2. Click List webs.
  3. Select (the other items listed are the system directories for your site) and Click OK.
  4. Enter the userid and password.
  5. Once the web is open, Select Tools | Change Password.
  6. Set a new password by completing the dialog. (CAUTION: make a record of your new password. Once it is changed, we WILL NOT have a record of your FrontPage password nor be able to change it for you.)

Below are some simple directions on how to publish your website with FrontPage 2002:

  1. Establish an active connection with your ISP (you MUST be online before beginning the publishing process).
  2. Open the web you wish to publish with FrontPage 2002 (on your local machine)
  3. Select File | Publish FrontPage Webs. A dialogue box will appear.
  4. If this is the first time publishing to this site, click "More Webs", then enter your IP address or domain name in the text field.

  5. If you are publishing to the Root Web of your site, make sure the field contains ONLY the domain name or IP address. ( or Anything following the domain name or IP address will cause the files to be published to a sub-web (or child web).

  6. Once the correct name is displayed for your location, click OK.
  7. You will be prompted for your userid and FrontPage password if you have not yet been connected to the server during this FrontPage session.

During the Publish process, you will notice in the left hand corner of your FrontPage Explorer the pages listing, copying and then the web updating on the server.

If your web is large and there is a great deal of traffic on the Internet, you may be timing out before the web is completely copied. If the above does not work for you, you can always open the web remotely (via FP Explorer) and Import the pages from the FP Explorer (File Import ...). Try to import one page at first to see if you can get it through cleanly. If that works, you can try importing several at a time until your site is copied.

Common Gateway Interface (CGI) Considerations:

Although FrontPage WebBot components cover much of the interactive programming features that users typically wish to add to their website, there are many cases where custom CGI scripts continue to be useful. For example, a company might wish to program a CGI scripts that alloss and end-user to access corporate database information via the web.

FrontPage makes it easy to invoke a custom CGI script. After an author lays out a form in the FrontPage Editor (whith, potentially, text imput fields, scrolling text boxes, checkboxes, radio buttons, drop-down pick lists, and pushbuttons), the author can specify the action to be taken by that form. One of those actions (in addition to the Discussion Bot, Registration Bot, and Save Results Bot) is to invoke a custom CGI script on the server. The author then provides the URL of the CGI script, and accompanying information.


There are several precations which need to be taken to protect the FrontPage extensions on your site:

  1. Do not use File Manager utilities in the Domain Control Panel to limit access to directories or set permissions on directories or files. This should only be done through the Tools | Permissions option in FrontPage Explorer.
  2. Do NOT use regular FTP (such as WS_FTP) to upload files to the server when FrontPage extensions are installed. This may corrupt the extensions, requiring that all files be removed to reload the extensions.
