Are there any precautions that I need to be aware before I begin using FrontPageĀ® to publish my site?

In order to protect the FrontPage extensions on your Unix account, please take into consideration the following precautions:

FrontPage uses the same .htaccess file as the Protect Directories utility in your Control Panel, which could cause problems. Once you have installed FrontPage extensions, use the directory protection that comes with the software

Do not use features found in your Control Panel to set passwords, limit access, set file permissions or delete directories or files in a FrontPage web. This should only be done through the options in FrontPage Explorer.

Do NOT use regular FTP (such as WS_FTP) to upload files to the server when FrontPage extensions are installed. This may corrupt the extensions, disabling the interactive features available with FrontPage.

NOTE: The exception to this is when loading custom scripts to the cgi-local directory on your site.
