Note: FrontPage Extensions should only be installed if you are using Microsoftâ€™s FrontPage to build your website AND you are using FrontPage dynamic themes and components on your website.. If you are not using FrontPage, then do not install the FrontPage Extensions.
1. Click the FrontPage Extensions icon under Advanced.
2. Click the Install Extensions button.
3. Thatâ€™s it! FrontPage Extensions have been installed, so you can now publish your website using FrontPage.
Note: Extensions have to be installed separately for any subdomains or addon domains.
Warning: Installing Frontpage extensions will delete any .htaccess files contained within your web area. This means that any directory or web page that requires authentication (a username and password) will need to be reconfigured after the extensions are installed.
.htaccess files are an integral part of any basic authentication process. The file lives within a directory on the server and is used to enact the authentication process when the directory is accessed. The .htaccess file is then checked against a file that contains an encrypted instance of the valid password for the directory.
.htaccess files also contain information about how the contents of the directory will be displayed, as well as information about how long visitorsâ€™ browsers will â€œcacheâ€ your site, or save it in memory.
