<h3><a name="apache">Apache 1.3.4 Support</a></h3>
<p>You need to take some special steps to run the FrontPage Server Extensions with Apache 1.3.4.
FrontPage Server Extensions expect to find all resource directives in the main server
configuration file, usually http.conf. To prevent the server extensions from using any secondary
configuration files (access.conf, srm.conf), add the following lines to http.conf:</p>
<font face="Courier New">
ResourceConfig /dev/null&nbsp;<br>
AccessConfig /dev/null</font>
<font face="Verdana">
<p>If you have some settings stored in secondary configuration files, move them to http.conf.</p>
<p>You must stop and restart the web server for your changes to http.conf to take effect.</p>

<h3><a name="upgrading">Upgrading from previous version of FrontPage Server Extensions</a></h3>
<p>Custom entries in frontpage.cnf are not migrated to FrontPage 2000.</p>
<p>When you install FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions, a new frontpage.cnf file is created in the /usr/local/frontpage/version4.0 directory.
Any custom settings stored in a previous-version frontpage.cnf are not used. However, you can copy
your custom settings from the previous-version frontpage.cnf file after you install the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions.</p>
<p>Do not overwrite the FrontPage 2000 frontpage.cnf file with a frontpage.cnf file from an
earlier version of the FrontPage Server Extensions.</p>

<h3><a name="executables">Uploading files into executable folders</a></h3>
<p>After upgrading to FrontPage 2000, FrontPage authors will not be able to upload files into
executable folders. For security reasons, the default setting on FrontPage 2000 webs does not
allow authors to upload executable files into executable folders in a FrontPage web. This
setting protects servers so that authors do not inadvertently upload a program containing a bug
or a virus.</p>
<p>To allow FrontPage authors to upload executables, set the NoExecutableCgiUpload configuration
variable to zero (0). For information about FrontPage Server Extension configuration variables,
see the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions Resource Kit at <a href=""></a>.</p>

Kit, open /usr/local/frontpage/version4.0/serk/default.htm in your Web browser.</p>
<p>The Server Extensions Resource Kit contains detailed information about installing and
administering the FrontPage Server Extensions along with an overview of the Server
Extensions, a detailed discussion of Server Extensions security on UNIX and Windows,
troubleshooting information, and a full set of appendixes.</p>
