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.

There are a few Apache/FP ports.  But not everyone uses them.

Brian Cook wrote in to say that he installed the apache13-mod_ssl port, then installed mod_php4, and finally just untared the fp40.freebsd.tar.Z and followed the directions on the Microsoft FP Homepage.  The other thing that he needed to do (after following the directions on above for fp_admin.exe) was to edit the /usr/local/frontpage/version4.0/frontpage.cnf and add FollowSymLinks:1.

He found that solution after he encountered an error when trying to install a FP web.  The error said something about FollowSymlinks not being in the right group.  After checking the Apache configuration items and finding the symlinks directive in the all the right places, he dumped the full error message into Google.  Approximately ten minutes of reading and looking, he found the fix.
