Hi, It is possible to update sites from Front Page to an Apache web server, just like we do with IIS? If positive, how-to with Apache? Thanks in advance......

    I've used the improved version of mod_frontpage for apache found here: http://freshmeat.net/projects/improvedmod_frontpage/ and it seemed to work well for our FP users.

    I think this version has less security implications than the original mod_frontpage, but security issues are a fact of life when it comes to FP extensions no matter what platform you use.

    i wouldn't treat security so lax man, while apache is probaly the most secure of the major webservers, that by no means makes security not importatnt, running lots of scripts can be dangerous. If your on a network with other computers, do them a favor and if your going to throw caution in the wind, put yourself in a dmz

    Exactly, good point. Running the FP extensions will compromise security and that should be well understood before you install them. Itís a fact that Linux/Apache are far more stable than NT/IISÖ.. so why install an IIS application that is known to have security holes?

    The best solution would be to use an editor such as homesite or dreamweaver with a standard ftp server like vsftpd.
