How to install and uninstall FrontPage extensions

FrontPage extensions should only be installed if you are using Microsoft's FrontPage to build your website.

This tutorial will assume that you are already logged into your cPanel. If you are having problems doing that or don't know how, please view the tutorial named: How to log into cPanel.

On the main page of your cPanel scroll down to the section named advanced and click on the FrontPage extensions link. 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 is a button that says install extensions. Click that button and that's all there is to it, your done.

You will be taken to a verification page showing that the FrontPage extensions are now installed and ready for you to publish your website to your hosting account. Click the go back button. The domain that has FrontPage extensions installed is now listed with the correct status of installed. Please note that extensions have to be installed separately for any subdomain or add-on domain.

To uninstall the extensions click on the FrontPage extensions link to view 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 then click on the button which takes you to a verification screen.

You can now click the home link in the upper left corner and return to the main cPanel page or to exit cPanel use the logout link in the upper right corner. Remember, if you are using a public computer, ALWAYS logout of cPanel before closing.
