Version 8.0.1 was also never released for CentOS5 or Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (RHEL5), which means that there are effectively no RPMs for FPSE, that was compiled against Apache 2.2.x.
You will need one of the older SWSoft FPSE RPM’s. I used
. The RPMs are located in the Plesk 8.0.1 .tar.gz file, in the
You will need to install one of the above RPM’s onto your system.
Once installed, do the following:
cp -afr /usr/local/frontpage .
tar -cvf frontpage-5.0.tgz ./frontpage-5.0/
You should now have a frontpage-5.0.tgz file, that will be used.
You need rpm-build
Copy the frontpage-5.0.tgz to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES
crash provided the following patches to have mod_frontpage compile against Apache 2.2.x. (The patches should allow you to compile mod_frontpage against Apache 2.0.x or Apache 2.2.x [There are a few tiny differences])
Download the patches: FrontPage Server Extension Patches for CentOS5 and Apache 2.2.x (The file was updated on 20 December 2007)
You need to have the httpd-devel RPM installed.
yum install httpd-devel, will usually be sufficient.
Now do the following:
tar zxvf mod_frontpage-patches.tgz
rpmbuild -bb frontpage.spec
If all goes well, the RPM build process should complete without any errors and you will have a brand new RPM to install FPSE with on CentOS5/RHEL5.
Credit to crash’s post. I discovered a few bugs in the patches originally provided by crash.
A few tips:
- If you installed the SWSoft RPM, you need to remove the mod_frontpage entry from the LoadModules section in the /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf file. If you do not Apache will complain that mod_frontpage is already loaded when you restart Apache.
- I have commented out the last 3 lines from /etc/httpd/conf.d/mod_frontpage.conf. Plesk already caters for this in the httpd.include file in each vhost.
- FrontPage Administration Pages only work in Internet Explorer, or at least for me.
- The FrontPage Server Extensions are EXTREMELY sensitive to file permissions.
