Command-line Properties

Archived content. No warranty is made as to technical accuracy. Content may contain URLs that were valid when originally published, but now link to sites or pages that no longer exist.

This topic lists the configuration properties you can set on the command line with Owsadm.exe and Owsrmadm.exe. The description for each property includes a definition of the property and the differences, if any, between the use of the property on Microsoft Windows and UNIX platforms. The table for each property includes columns with the default value for the property, whether the property is available on Windows or UNIX, and the levels at which the property is available (global, virtual server, or subweb).

Note   Any subweb property can be changed by using the SetProperty operation by specifying the name of the setting as it appears in the _vti_pvt\service.cnf file, with the "vti_" prefix and with the -web parameter. For example, to set the RequireSSL property for a subweb, you would specify vti_RequireSSL, and include the -web parameter.

For more information about using the command-line tools, see Command-line Administration. For more information about using the command-line tools to set configuration properties, see Setting Configuration Properties.

AllowExecutableScripts

When AllowExecutableScripts is set to a non-zero value, Microsoft FrontPage will set the executable bit on files within executable directories. When directories are marked as executable, all files within the directory will also be marked as executable. If authors are permitted to upload into executable directories (that is, the NoExecutableCgiUpload variable is set to 0), then when AllowExecutableScripts is set to a non-zero value, authors will be able to execute newly uploaded CGI scripts and ISAPI extensions. If NoExecutableCgiUpload is set to 0 and AllowExecutableScripts is set to 0, authors will be able to upload and use ASP and IDC files, but not CGI or ISAPI files.

CacheMaxImage

By default, SharePoint Team Services and FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions set the HEIGHT and WIDTH attributes in all IMG tags in pages saved to a Web site. This improves the appearance of pages when a site visitor downloads them over a slow connection. This property sets the maximum number of images whose HEIGHT and WIDTH attributes the server extensions will cache while recalculating hyperlinks or saving a page. If you set this variable globally or per-virtual server, and Web sites on your server frequently contain more than 16 images, you should increase this number. If you set this variable on an individual subweb, do not set it higher than the number of image files in the Web site.

ImageMapFormat

Sets the URL format used by the server-side image map processor that runs on FrontPage-generated image maps. Note that FrontPage 2000 generates client-side image maps, and most browsers support client-side image maps, so this setting is only useful with earlier versions of FrontPage. Valid parameters are NCSA, CERN, Netscape, none, or "". If you specify none, FrontPage will not generate HTML to support server-side image map processing. The empty string "" specifies to generate default FrontPage image maps.

ListLockLatency

The call from the FrontPage client to the server extensions to list documents can be very long running, if, for example, the call is for a list of the entire contents of a large Web site. By default, ListLockLatency is set so that this transaction releases and reacquires its lock on the Web site every five seconds. This is only a rough number; the locks are released whenever a new directory is encountered during the list transaction. A directory containing 100,000 files, for example, could take many tens of seconds to list, and the lock will not be released until the entire directory is listed. Control the lock-release interval (in seconds) by setting ListLockLatency. The value of the variable is the maximum number of seconds between lock releases. A value of 0 means that the lock should be released every time a new subdirectory is encountered.

ListSystemDSNs

When FrontPage 2000 server extensions are installed on a Web server, users of the FrontPage client can list all system DSNs on the server by clicking Web Settings on the Tools menu and going to the Database tab. This can create a security hole, because it exposes a list of resources on your server. When ListSystemDSNs is set to 0, FrontPage users cannot view the list of system DSNs on the Web server. When ListSystemDSNs is set to a non-zero value, system DSNs are listed.

If you are using local accounts only, set this value to 1 to bypass the check for a domain account and automatically create local machine accounts. Note that setting this value to 1 means that you cannot use domain accounts at all. So, even if a particular domain account is valid, any attempt to add that domain account to the list of users will fail.

MailCharSet

Can be used to override the character-set attribute of the content-type header. Can be set to any character set value, not just the values listed on the Change Configuration Settings administration page.

The default settings for character sets vary depending on the feature sending the e-mail. For subscription notifications, the default character set matches the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Web Server\ServerLanguage registry entry. This registry entry is set when SharePoint Team Services and FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions is installed, and matches the language that is installed.

For usage analysis notifications, document library rules notifications, and invitations, the default character set is the same as the character set for the current FrontPage Web site. You can change this setting in FrontPage, by using the Web Setting command (Tools menu). In the Web Setting dialog box, click the Language tab, and then select a character set in the Default page encoding box.

NoAbsoluteFileResults

(This is an obsolete variable provided for backward compatibility; use NoSaveResultsToAbsoluteFile instead.) When set to a non-zero value, NoAbsoluteFileResults forces the default (Save Results), Registration, and Discussion form handlers to write only to a file within the author's Web site content area. It prevents these form handlers from writing to an absolute file path. Although the default value of NoAbsoluteFileResults is 0 it is set to 1 during FrontPage Setup.

NoClientImageMaps

When NoClientImageMaps is set to 1, it prevents FrontPage from generating HTML that supports client-side image-map processing. To configure FrontPage to generate client-side and server-side image maps, leave this variable set to its default value of 0 and select a server-side image-map format (see ImageMapFormat).

NoExecutableCgiUpload

When NoExecutableCgiUpload is set to a non-zero value, new CGI scripts cannot be run. On a UNIX server, when this key is set to a non-zero value, the server extensions will not set the execute bit on any CGI scripts that an author uploads to a Web site using FrontPage. On a Windows server, when this key is set to a non-zero value, the server extensions will not allow the file to be uploaded. The user receives an error message saying that the file can't be put in the specified directory. A Web Presence Provider can manually set the execute permission after inspecting the CGI script. When NoExecutableCgiUpload is set to 0, the server extensions automatically set the execute bit on CGI scripts uploaded to an author's cgi-bin directory (UNIX), and automatically allow scripts to be uploaded to executable directories (Windows). NoExecutableCgiUpload also controls whether users can mark directories as executable. If the value is 0, users can mark any directory executable, if the value is non-zero, users cannot make directories executable, but Web site administrators can.

NoIndexServer

When NoIndexServer is set to 1, FrontPage does not use the IIS Index Server to build the full-text index of the Web site. Instead, FrontPage uses the free WAIS search engine that is included in FrontPage 2000. By default, if FrontPage detects Index Server, it will use it to build the full-text index.

Use the default setting unless you expect to support many virtual servers (more then 150) on a single server. This is a global property only. You must set this property before extending any virtual servers.

NoMarkScriptable

IIS 4.0 or later. When NoMarkScriptable is set to a non-zero value, users of the FrontPage client cannot modify the scriptable bit on any folders in a Web site. When this value is set, an Internet service provider must manually set the scriptable bit on folders. When NoMarkScriptable is set to 0, FrontPage client users can modify this bit. Internet service providers can use this setting to selectively allow or disallow use of database features and other ASP-based pages on a per-server or per-Web site basis.

Note that if NoMarkScriptable is set to 1 on the server, but vti_nomarkscriptable is set to 0 for a Web site on the server, then users of the FrontPage client can access database features. This allows ISPs to disallow database features by default on a server, and then selectively turn on those features for particular customers.

If the key NoRolesSupport in the section of a specific port in the port configuration is set to 1 roles are turned off for that port. Turned off in this context means the level of FrontPage 2000 functionality with only Browser, Author, and Administrator roles.

NoSaveResultsPipeTo

Earlier releases of FrontPage allow the default (Save Results) form handler to pipe form results to any arbitrarily chosen program. For backward compatibility, NoSaveResultsPipeTo disables this capability when it is set to a non-zero value. To allow piping form contents to a program, set this variable to 0.

When NoSaveResultsToAbsoluteFile is set to 0, the FrontPage default (Save Results), Registration, and Discussion form handlers will write to an absolute file path Use NoSaveResultsToAbsoluteFile instead of the obsolete NoAbsoluteFileResults.

It does not effect Web sites that were created before making the setting.

PrivateDirUMask

Specifies the umask to be used when tightening permissions on the _private directory. The value is an *octal* number. If this configuration setting is not present, the default value is 077, meaning that 'group' and 'other' will be denied all access to _private. If you want to allow group read access to _private (but still prevent 'other' from having any access), you could use the following setting:

PrivateDirUMask:027

Note that since this is an octal value, a leading 0 (zero) is mandatory. This is consistent with the UNIX 'umask' command.

PublishMetainfoKeys

When you publish updated documents to your Web site, FrontPage checks a list of document properties and verifies that the content of these properties (metadata values) match between the source and the destination Web sites. If they don't match, FrontPage updates the destination Web site with the source Web site's copy of the document. The property list is stored in the key PublishMetainfoKeys, and is customizable. Note that if you want to prevent FrontPage from checking metadata values, delete the list from the key rather than deleting the key. Otherwise, the key is recreated – with the default list of metadata values – when you install an upgrade to SharePoint Team Services and FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions.

RunTimeFileExtensions

When using the executable Shtml.exe, versions 3.0.2.1330 or later, runtime FrontPage-based components such as the default (Save Results) form handler and the Search form will only process HTML or HTML-based files that do not contain ASP code or the SCRIPT RUNAT=server tag. This prevents exposing the contents of source code, passwords, or other private information to users. The set of HTML or HTML-based files that can be processed by Shtml.exe is identified by file name extension: .htm, .html, .shtm, .shtml, .htx, .asp, .alx, and .asa. If the Web server's configuration file maps other file name extensions to an HTML or HTML-based file type, those files are also added to the set of files that can be processed by Shtml.exe. For Apache, any file extensions mapped to have a MIME type of "text/html" are also added to the set of files that can be processed by Shtml.exe. Use RunTimeFileExtensions to specify which file types that can be processed by Shtml.exe, should be processed. This further limits the set of HTML or HTML-based file types to be processed by Shtml.exe.

SMTPHost

The SMTPHost variable is set to the name or IP address of a host running an SMTP daemon, such as sendmail on UNIX. When a site visitor submits a form whose results are to be sent via e-mail, SharePoint Team Services and FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions connect to the SMTP daemon to deliver the mail. By default, FrontPage assumes that the daemon is listening on port 25 (the standard for SMTP) but you can override this by appending ":xx" to the name, where the xx is the port to use. Normally, you will set either the SMTPHost or SendmailCommand variables, but not both, because SendmailCommand takes priority over SMTPHost.

For Web sites with less than 500 pages, set the value of this property to 1. For Web sites with 500 to 5000 pages, set it to 2. For Web sites with more than 5000 pages, set it to 4.
