Things look quiet here. But I've been doing a lot of blogging at dan.langille.org because I prefer WordPress now. Not all my posts there are FreeBSD related. I am in the midst of migrating The FreeBSD Diary over to WordPress (and you can read about that here). Once the migration is completed, I'll move the FreeBSD posts into the new FreeBSD Diary website.

This script will step the user through upgrading existing and installing 
new servers and webs.  As with any software installation, a backup should
be done before continuing.  It is recommended that the FrontPage
installation directory, server configuration file directory, and all web 
content be backed up before continuing with this installation.

Directory /usr/local exists.
Root has necessary access to /usr/local.

Where would you like to install the FrontPage Extensions.  If you
select a location other than /usr/local/frontpage/ then a symbolic
link will be created from /usr/local/frontpage/ to the location that
is chosen.

FrontPage Extensions directory [/usr/local/frontpage]:
