    For no apparent reason Frontpage has begun refusing my connection attempts on sites I could connect to beofre. When I open frontpage and then say open site I get the following error message from Frontpage:

    "The folder 'http://www.domainname.com/' isn't accessable. The folder may be located in an unavailable location. protected witha password, or the filename contains a / or \.

    Anybody have any ideas?

    Ok, I got a fix!

    several reasons caused this! I use mod_security plus I update apache and stuff!

    so first you need to revert back to an older version of suexec, luckly plesk uses an older one that you can copy(I found all this through reading a lot of forums.. )
    Code:
    [root@r504t sbin]# diff /usr/sbin/suexec /usr/local/psa/suexec/psa-suexec
    Binary files /usr/sbin/suexec and /usr/local/psa/suexec/psa-suexec differ
    [root@r504t sbin]# cp /usr/sbin/suexec /usr/sbin/suexec.old
    [root@r504t sbin]# cp /usr/local/psa/suexec/psa-suexec /usr/sbin/suexec
    cp: overwrite `/usr/sbin/suexec'? y
    [root@r504t sbin]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
    
    Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
    Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
    
    Now try out the admin page... if it still doesnt work load up your mod_security.conf and update the line
    Code:
    # Change Server: string
    # breaks FP2002
    SecServerSignature " "
    
    to
    Code:
    # Change Server: string
    # breaks FP2002
    SecServerSignature "Microsoft-IIS/5.0"
    
    from one of the sites I read said this also fools 'hacker' to think you have a windows machine..
    Code:
    [root@r504t sbin]# pico /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_security.conf
    [root@r504t sbin]# /etc/init.d/httpd restart
    Stopping httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
    Starting httpd:                                            [  OK  ]
    
    this should work!! You may have to repeat this everytime you update your apache!
