Accessing Microsoft FrontPage Web Administrator

You can access the Microsoft FrontPage Web Administrator directly from the Control Panel, clicking on the FP Webadmin button, or FP-SSL Webadmin if you wish to access it over secure SSL connection. These buttons are located at the bottom of the Domain Administration page, provided that hosting is set up for the domain, and Microsoft FrontPage is available. Note, that the FrontPage Web Admin software should be installed and configured properly for this function to work, and the FrontPage and FrontPage over SSL support should be enabled within Plesk.


Some browsers (such as Netscape and Mozilla versions before 1.4b) do not support NTLM authorization, required to login to FP Webadmin. Therefore, to allow the clients who use non-Windows platforms to access Microsoft FrontPage, you will need to do the following:

  1. Run IIS Manager (Start -> Programs -> Administrative Tools -> Internet Information Services).

  2. Right click on the domain virtual directory and select Properties in the context menu (Web Sites -> <domain IP address> -> <domain name_non_ssl|domain name_ssl>).

  3. Select the Directory Security tab.

  4. In the "Authentication and access control" section, click the Edit button.

  5. Select the "Basic authentication (password is sent as clear text)" checkbox in the "Authenticated access" section.

  6. Click OK.

Note that enabling basic authentication renders the connections to FrontPage insecure.
