    Default FrontPage Extensions

    Microsoft FrontPage extensions allow editing/managing a web site with Microsoft FrontPage, even on a Linux/Apache web server.

    These extensions are notoriously fragile though, and will often stop working properly for a variety of reasons.

    Fortunately the problems are usually easy to fix by "reinstalling" the extensions.

    Plesk:
    * Log in to Plesk at https://any_of_your_ips:8443/
    * Click Domains
    * Click the domain of the site exhibiting the problem
    * Click "Setup"
    * Uncheck the boxes labeled "FrontPage support" and "FrontPage over SSL support"
    * Click "OK"
    * Click "Setup" again
    * Check the boxes labeled "FrontPage support" and/or "FrontPage over SSL support"
    * Click "OK"

    If the site continues to refuse to cooperate with Microsoft FrontPage or forms continue to fail, please contact support with the URL of the page exhibiting the problem, and any additional information needed to replicate the problem.

    If reinstalling the extensions does not fix a problem relating to Microsoft FrontPage extensions, often a full reinstall will help.

    To do so requires deleting all the files under your web document root though, so ensure you have made a backup of your site first!

    Follow the usual steps to uninstall FrontPage extensions from your site using your control panel, do not reinstall just yet.

    Next, remove all the files under your web document root. Ensure you also remove any hidden files (like .htaccess).

    Then reinstall FrontPage extensions and upload your site using Microsoft FrontPage.

    I'd just like to also mention that FP Extensions are also notoriously known for having many security holes.

    It should also be noted that Microsoft has decided that Frontpage has reached the end of its' life. As a result MS is no longer supporting Frontpage, which will increase the problems as time goes on and make that much harder to find solutions.
