Important Notes

  • On the Windows platform, the security features of FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions require the NTFS file system. Windows 2000 includes a conversion utility (Convert.exe) that you can use to convert an existing file allocation table (FAT) volume to NTFS, without losing data. If you try to install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions to a disk drive that is formatted with FAT, your default virtual server may not be extended. Also, any sites that you create on that virtual server will not be secure.
  • You must have administrative rights on the server. If you are working remotely, you must have administrative rights on the remote server, and you must have a copy of Owsrmadm on the local computer.

Step 1 - Download and Install the Server Extensions

  1. Open your Internet browser and browse to the following Microsoft Web site:
  2. Click fpse02_x86_ENG.exe.
  3. When you are prompted with the choices Run this program from its current location and Save this program to disk, click Save this program to disk.
  4. You will be prompted to save to a location on your computer's hard disk. Click Browse and browse to a location of your choice. Note where you save the file.
  5. Open the folder in which you saved the server extensions download.
  6. Double-click fpse02_x86_ENG.exe.
  7. Click through the Setup Wizard to install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, using the defaults in all steps.

Step 2 - Extend the Server by Using the Command-Line Tools

  1. Click Start, point to Run. In the Open box, type cmd, and then click OK.
  2. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    cd "C:\program files\common files\Microsoft shared\web server extensions\50\bin"
    where C:\ is the drive that contains the FrontPage Server Extensions. (If the FrontPage Server Extensions are on a different drive, replace C:\ with that drive letter.)
  3. Type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    owsadm.exe -o install -p 80 -u username -sp publish
    where "80" is the port number for your virtual server and "username" is your Windows user name.

    Your web server's Default Web Site is initially configured to be on port "80", but if you have changed that setting or you are installing the server extensions on a different virtual server, you will need to substitute that port number for 80, or use an instance number, such as /LM/W3SVC/1, /LM/W3SVC/3, and so on.

    If your user name is a domain account, use the following syntax when you type your user name:
  4. Type EXIT and then press ENTER to close the command prompt.
