First question I have is help, uploading content to website? Looking forward for any answer. Another question... What I have is a file called ( _vti_cnf ) in every osc file with in my catalog file..

They where not there origionalaly???.

Inside my htdocs file as well as my catalog being in there I have also my second iPage website made and published with front page 2002..

What I found was that after I installed service pack 2 that these ( _vti_cnf ) files appeared would any one know why they would be there? The iPage site works OK..

And I would like to thank every one for there inputs past and present...

Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer. I'll do some poking around and get back to you if I got an decent answer. You should email the people at iPage as they probably could assist you..

Front page will make a big mess on your web site. The files in there are actually text files with info about the same named file in the above directory so you will see stuff like this.

Logo.jpg <-image file.

_vti_cnf/logo.jpg <- text file about logo.jpg.

One thing to be aware of is that installing, re-installing, or updating the FrontPage extensions, like from your server control panel, can replace your .htaccess files with it's own and possibly leaving catalog/admin unprotected..

Also you will see lots of _vti... junk in your log files when some virus is trying to attack your server..

Anyway if you installed FrontPage extensions and checked your protected dirs then you should be ok. Each time you access the iPage site with FrontPage it will make a bunch of _vti stuff for you..

I havent got front page server extensions installed I am running apachi 2.49 ??.

Could I delete these files as I didnt require them before service pack 2 was installed thank: Martin..

You can install and uninstall FP extensions through CPanel (or similar), or when you access your iPage site through FP is will add the extentions for you. You can delete them but next time you access your iPage site with FP it will install them again...

Comment #6

In order to acomplish that you would need the serverside front page extensions installed via control panel or webhost admin..

There is no way to install the server side extensions from the client FrontPage App..


You come here asking for answers and now some how you understand your server better then me?.


Let me know how far your 'Apachi' is running before you can stop it.............
