Chapter 13. Creating a Web Site > FrontPage Server Extensions and Windows Share...

FrontPage Server Extensions and Windows SharePoint Services

The FrontPage Server Extensions are a collection of executable files and scripts that are installed on a Web server to allow FrontPage to talk directly to the Web server and to provide enhanced content in a FrontPage Web site. Each new version of FrontPage (except FrontPage 2003, as you will see later) has provided a new version of the FrontPage Server Extensions for Microsoft Windows Web servers, as well as Web servers running on other operating systems.

Checking for FrontPage Extensions on a Server

If you want to check to see if a Web server has the FrontPage Server Extensions installed, you can use the form located at http://www.dnswiz.com/fptype.asp. By entering in the Web site location, this form will tell you if the FrontPage Server Extensions are installed as well as the version number that is installed.

If the version number starts with a 3, the FrontPage 98 Server Extensions are installed. Version 4 indicates that the FrontPage 2000 Server Extensions are installed, and version 5 indicates that the FrontPage 2002 Server Extensions are installed.

There will be no FrontPage 2003 Server Extensions because no new features in FrontPage 2003 require the use of the FrontPage Server Extensions.
