How To Install and Uninstall FrontPage Extensions

This tutorial will show you how to install and uninstall FrontPage extensions. Please note that FrontPage Extensions should only be installed if you are using Microsoft's FrontPage to build you web site!! This tutorial will assume that you are logged into your cPanel. If you are having trouble doing that, please see the tutorial named "How to Login to cPanel".

On the main page of your cPanel, scroll down to the section named Advanced. Click on the FrontPage Extensions icon. This will take you to a screen that will list your domain or domains, (if there are parked or add-ons in your hosting account), and the status of FrontPage Extensions on that domain. It will say Installed or not Installed. Next to the domain in the list is a button that says Install Extensions. Click that button.

That is all there is to it. You will be taken to a verification page, showing that the FrontPage Extensions are now installed, and ready for you to publish your web site to your hosting account. Click the Go Back button. The domain that has Front Page Extensions installed is now listed with the correct status of installed. Remember, extensions have to be installed separately for any Subdomain or add-on domain.

To uninstall the Extensions, click on the FrontPage Extensions icon. This takes you to the main screen, where you will find a list of domains, with FrontPage status listed. Find the one you wish to remove, and go across the list to Uninstall Extensions. Click on the button. This will take you to a verification screen. You can now Click the HOME button in the upper left corner, and return to the cPanel main page. This is the end of this tutorial.

You can now exit cPanel by closing your browser, or by using the Logout button in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS Logout of cPanel before closing due to security reasons.
