Installing FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions for Windows

 Cc767983.spacer(en-us,TechNet.10).gif Cc767983.spacer(en-us,TechNet.10).gif

FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions are available as part of Windows Server 2003, Standard or Enterprise Edition.

Note   On the Microsoft Windows platform, the security features of FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions require the NTFS file system. Windows 2000 and the Windows Server 2003 family include 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 formatted with FAT, your default virtual server might not be extended. Also, any sites you create on that virtual server will not be secure.

To install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions for Windows Server 2003 

  1. Click Start, point to Control Panel, and then point to Add or Remove Programs.

  2. Click Add/Remove Windows Components.

  3. In the Windows Component wizard, select Web Application Server, and then click Details.

  4. Select Internet Information Services (IIS), and then click Details.

  5. Select FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, and then click OK twice to close the Details dialog boxes.

  6. Complete the steps in the wizard to update or install the Web Application Server component with Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.

Once installed, the Microsoft FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions will run the next time you restart your server with Internet Information Services enabled.

By default, the Windows Server 2003 platform sets Internet Explorer to High security for the Internet zone and Medium security for trusted zones. You must add each of your Web sites based on FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions and the administration virtual server for FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions to the trusted zone for Internet Explorer before they can work correctly.

To enable FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions for Windows Server 2003 

  1. Open Internet Explorer.

  2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options.

  3. On the Security tab, select Trusted Sites, and then click Sites.

  4. In the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL for your server computer (for example, http://server_name), and then click Add.

  5. If you are using the HTTPS protocol to access your administration pages or a site, in the Add this Web site to the zone box, type the URL for your server computer including the https:// protocol (for example, https://server_name), and then click Add.

  6. Click OK to close the Trusted Sites dialog box.

  7. Under Security level for this zone, click Custom Level.

  8. In the Security Settings dialog box, in the Settings section, under User Authentication, select Automatic logon with current username and password, and then click OK.

Extending a server with FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions

 Cc767983.spacer(en-us,TechNet.10).gif Cc767983.spacer(en-us,TechNet.10).gif

After you set up FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on your server, you must extend the server.

You can extend the server one of three ways:

  • By using HTML Administration pages.

  • By using the install operation with the command-line tools.

  • By running the command-line installation in unattended mode.

If you want to extend the server from the command line and perform other actions in a batch process, you can use unattended Setup and configuration. For more information, see Running Unattended Setup.

Using HTML Administration Pages to Extend a Server

Using HTML Administration pages gives you the most flexibility in choosing which options you want enabled when you extend your server.

To extend a server by using HTML Administration pages on Windows 

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Microsoft SharePoint Administrator to open the Server Administration page.

    Note: You can also open the Server Administration page by typing the URL to the page (http://server_name:port/fpadmdll.dll or http://localhost:port/fpadmdll.dll). For more information, see HTML Administration.

  2. In the list of virtual servers, next to the virtual server you want to extend, click Extend.

  3. In the Administrator box, type the user name for the administrator of the virtual server.

  4. Click Submit.

On UNIX, only those virtual servers that appear in the administration port's configuration file show up in the list of virtual servers. So, to extend one of those virtual servers, you can use the Extend link next to the virtual server in the list. If you want to extend a virtual server that is not in the list, you can use the Extend a virtual server link on the Server Administration page instead.

To extend a server by using HTML Administration pages on UNIX 

  1. Open the Server Administration page.

  2. Click Extend a virtual server, or in the list of virtual servers, next to the virtual server you want to extend, click Extend.

  3. In the Server Configuration File Path box, type the full path to the configuration file for the server.

  4. In the Port box, type the port for the virtual server.

  5. In the Host name box, type the host name.

  6. In the Administrator user name box, type the user name for the administrator of the virtual server.

  7. In the Administrator Account Password box, type the password for the administrator account.

  8. In the UNIX User Account Username box, type the user name for the account that owns the content on the file system.

  9. In the UNIX Group Account Name box, type the name of the group that owns the content on the file system.

  10. Click Submit.

Using the command line to extend a server

You can extend a server by using the command-line tools, owsadm or owsrmadm. To do so, use the install operation, which takes the following parameters.

Parameter

Short Form

Description

Port

-p

The port number. On Internet Information Server (IIS) 4.0 or later, this value can be an instance number, such as /LM/W3SVC/1. If missing, this parameter defaults to port 80.

Username

-u

If your server is part of a domain, the domain name and your user name. For example, MyDomain\MyUserName.

Siteprovision

-sp

Windows only. Specifies the type of site to provision. To install FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions from the SharePoint Team Services Setup program, use the PUBLISH value. If you are using the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions download to install the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, you do not need to specify the siteprovision parameter.

If any of these parameters are missing, default parameters are used instead. Note that if you are installing from the SharePoint Team Services Setup program, the default siteprovision parameter is SHAREPTHP (install SharePoint Team Services and create a SharePoint team Web site). In this situation, if you want to install only FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions, you must specify the PUBLISH value.

The following example shows the syntax for the install operation on Windows:

owsadm.exe –o install –p <port> -u <username> -sp publish

On UNIX, you do not need to use the siteprovision parameter with the install operation. You do, however, need to include the xuser and servconf parameters, and optionally, the xgroup parameter. The following example shows the syntax for the install operation on UNIX:

owsadm.exe –o install –p <port> -u <username> -servconf <path to server configuration file>
  -xuser <UNIX user account name> -xgroup <UNIX group account name>

Note   For a complete list of the parameters required for the install operation and their descriptions, see Command-line Operations.

You can temporarily or permanently remove FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions on a particular server. To temporarily remove the extensions so you can clean or restore your site, use the Uninstall command. In this mode, much of the data about your site is preserved, so you can extend the virtual server again and return to your original configuration.

All of the data about your site (excluding actual site content) is deleted when you perform a full uninstall, so be sure that is what you want before you use the Full Uninstall option.
