FrontPage Extensions to be disabled by cPanel
Posted by Sarwan Jassi on 19 March 2015 03:41 AM
Hello,


This email is for information purposes only.  If you are currently utilizing Microsoft FrontPage Extensions on your hosting account, the information below will pertain to you.

On Sunday March 22, 2015, all FrontPage Extensions will no longer be available in cPanel and any attempt to connect to the server with FrontPage software will cease to work.

Microsoft reached the official end of life for FrontPage on June 30, 2006. Support for FrontPage Extensions ended on February 26, 2008. While FrontPage Extensions have allowed customers to continue publishing since these dates, cPanel has decided it will no longer offer this feature.

You may continue to create your website with FrontPage; however, you will need to find an alternate method of uploading your content to the server. We have listed some options for you below. Additional features within the actual software which rely on FrontPage Extensions will no longer work on Pacifichost servers. These features and functionalities include:

 

•             Locking files so that only one author at a time can modify a page
•             Creating, deleting, and renaming webs and sub-webs
•             Automatically updating hyperlinks when you rename files
•             Automatically generating a list of hyperlinks
•             Style Sheet links to multiple files
•             Incorporating database access in a web
•             Enabling other Microsoft Office 2000 applications to save directly to a Web server
•             Hit Counters
•             Registration form handler
•             Search form
•             Discussion form handler
•             Confirmation Field
