When you browse to an ASP page that was created with the FrontPage 2000 Database Results Region, you may receive the following error message:
The Include file '../_fpclass/fpdblib.inc' cannot contain '..' to indicate the parent directory.
Many Web hosting companies turn off (disable) parent pathing on the Internet Information Server site in order to address security concerns. When parent pathing is turned off, '../' cannot be used in an include directive to navigate to the parent folder.

FrontPage uses include files for database connectivity on Database Results Region pages. If the Database Results Region page is saved in a folder other than the root folder of the web, FrontPage writes the path to the Fpdblib.inc file as '../_fpclass/fpdblib.inc'. If parent pathing is turned off for the site, this directive fails.
It is recommended that ASP files that are created with the FrontPage 2000 Database Results Region always be saved in the root folder of the web. In all cases, this prevents FrontPage from using '../' to navigate to the parent directory.
