Unix Frontpage extensions
FrontPage extensions allow you to use the publication feature and
dynamic page elements available in Microsoft's FrontPage software.
You should only install the server extensions if you intend to use
Microsoft's FrontPage software to create and upload your web site.
If you install FrontPage extensions you will not be able to upload
your files and manage your site using FTP.
Installing FrontPage Extensions
Frontpage Extensions are pre-instaleld on certain UNIX accounts.
If you do not currently have Frontpage extensions installed you
should upgrade your account to one which has this feature.

In the event that your FrontPage extensions become corrupted and
you can no longer use FrontPage to manage your site correctly, you

Notes On UNIX FrontPage Extensions
FrontPage 2000 extensions are installed on our UNIX servers, we
are aware that this is not the latest version of the server extensions,
however the 2002 extensions are not compatible with our server operating
system. Please note therefore that some of the newer features included
in the FrontPage XP client software will not work and that due to
the shared environment, the subwebs, usage analysis and user management
features are disabled. Note also that you cannot use FrontPage extensions
when you have password protected directories on your account. You
must remove password protection from all directories before installing
