Chapter 38. FrontPage 2000 and Microsoft... > Troubleshooting and Common Problems

Troubleshooting and Common Problems

Every software application or service has its own set of issues and IIS 4 is no exception to the rule. Some of these directly effect how FrontPage can operate in conjunction with IIS 4. There are some problems that can occur just because of the way IIS is set to operate, but they can be easily corrected. Understanding some of the common problems before setting up FrontPage webs can be a great boon to any system administrator. When setting up IIS 4 and FrontPage for the first time, it is always advisable to test several configurations before rolling a system into a production environment. If the server will be hosting multiple domains, testing all features under several dummy domains is extremely useful before going live—especially for an ISP who is entering the FrontPage hosting market for the first time.

Most issues that occur with IIS fall into two categories: FrontPage server extension configuration issues on IIS and problems with the way IIS operates. There is no clear line between the two, but it helps to categorize problems when truly trying to understand where they are coming from. An application might behave oddly through no fault of its own because it often relies on other resources. The same can be said of using FrontPage on IIS. System administrators can waste valuable resources tracking down what they think is an error in FrontPage, only to find that it is an error with IIS or their security settings. The following problems are common problems seen with IIS 4 since its beta days. Most of the same problems can be found in IIS 3 and may be present in the upcoming IIS 5.
