    I've been using linux and cpanel for a few years now and just got a Plesk 7.5.6 server with windows. Just curious whats needed and whats not needed in the "httpdocs" folder.



    I know the first 5 folders deal with FrontPage extensions, but not sure if the other folders/files are needed such as the "css" folder or the "picture_library" folder.

    Here are my following questions:
    1. What can be deleted and can't be deleted?

    2. If I accidently delete the frontpage extensions folders, how would i get the back? I cant seem to find a way to uninstall FP from a specific account and reinstall it just to that account.

    3. I'm migrating some websites over from another server which also use FP Extensions, but should i the also copy over the "_vit_*" folders as well or no? I'm guessing i'm going to have to upload the websites that use FP extensions from within frontpage again but i was just curious if i still needed the old _vti folders or just use the ones that plesk installs?

    4. How would i be able to uninstall/reinstall ASP for a specific account? Have the same question about cgi/php/etc.

    Would this be a easy task, or would it be a hassle to reinstall those onto an account.

    5. Via FTP i'm unable to delete the "picture_library" folder, it says "access denied". Anyone know why?

    Thank you in advance for your replies.

    Hi CSPtony

    The following folders and file are part of the skeleton ...


    The skeleton is the default page and testing files that are created. You can create your own skeleton via Server > Skeleton in your admin.

    The picture library is apparently used for sitebuilder, I dont think you can delete it via the FTP account.

    Enabling/Disabling languages such as ASP is easy to do and can be done at any time. On the domains page, go to setup and tick / untick the box for the language then click update.

    I dont know anything about FP so cant help with that.
