Frontpage htaccess file

Frontpage uses it's own .htaccess file. When a Frontpage site is opened; Frontpage reads this file. This .htaccess file is created when the Frontpage extensions are installed.

FP htaccess can be altered, but with care, and only certain things. Make sure you have a back up!. If you alter this file, you will not be able to log in with Frontpage. We cannot be responsible if you break your Frontpage extensions. Anytime you want to add anything to a Frontpage .htaccess file; it should be below all of the stuff that fp adds - skip a line and then add your stuff.. I have tested/fixed things in this manner and I know it works. Way back when I started in hosting; it was all over the website -that if you used fp you couldn't mess with the .htaccess, but that was then.

This is what the Frontpage .htaccess file looks like:

# -FrontPage-
IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

<Limit GET POST>
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
order deny,allow
deny from all
ErrorDocument 404 /<your error document>
AuthName www03
AuthUserFile /path/to/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
AuthGroupFile /path/to/_vti_pvt/service.grp

Anything that you want to add should go here.

You will need to ftp a copy of the .htaccess file in ASCII format and then add in the appropriate changes before FTPing it back up once more in ASCII format. As long as the same file is replaced it will not corrupt your extensions to do this.
