FrontPage 98 – publishing problemsThis article talks about how I had trouble publishing and how I fixed it.
The problemAfter all of my trials with Apache, I finally got around to trying to publish to the virtual webs I had just set up. However, I found a great number of problems. My first problem was trying to remember the passwords. After getting that sorted out, I found I was receiving an error message long the following lines:
Server Error: Server is busy. Please try again later.
Some searching with Deja News, I found that it was a directory permission problem. So I fixed that. Then I began to get the following message in /var/log/httpd-error.log:
Thu Oct 22 17:21:23 1998] access to /usr/local/www/data/racingsystem/_vti_inf.html failed for nt1.www.example.org, reason: File does not exist
[Thu Oct 22 17:23:11 1998] access to /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe failed for nt1.example.org, reason: user racingsystem: password mismatch
I started playing around with the permissions of the directories and files. Eventually, I gave up and installed Apache from scratch. Here’s how I did that:
After restarting Apache, everything ran great! I could publish whatever I wanted.
