Installing Frontpage Server Extensions Windows Server 2008 fpse

    Hi All,

    I can install the fpse ok using the following guide

    I have extended fpse onto the relevant domain and when configuring the hosting settings for the domain all the appropriate boxes are available in plesk to enable frontpage server extensions on the domain. My problem is that I still can not log on to the domain remotely through frontpage to author the site...

    When trying to connect remotely to the domain I get the following error:
    "The folder 'http://mydomainname.com' isn't accessible. The folder may be located in an unavailable location, protected with a password, or the filename contains a / or \."

    In the above documentation the following is said:
    "Note: Extending a Web site does not configure any authentication methods. After installing FPSE 2002 on a Web site, you will need to configure an authentication method, such as Windows or Basic Authentication, before your users will be able to open or publish to the Web site"

    How is this authentication created?

    Many Thanks

    Problem Solved...

    Answer is in the Internet Information Services (IIS) Manager

    Click on your server
    Click sites
    Click the appropriate domain name
    Go to authentication
    Enable basic authentication

    Also another thing i came across was when I was opening a site remotely through frontpage i used to put the full url of the domain i.e

    at this stage I was still not able to log in remotely because of SSL set as default on the server so I had to log in using the following domain example


    This setting can be altered through Microsoft Sharepoint Administration
    Click on 'Administration' of your virtual server
    Go to change configuration settings
    Under 'Security Settings' uncheck 'Require SSL for authoring and administration '
