Why can't I use FTP or a shell account to upload, edit, or move FrontPage pages?
FrontPage runs inside the Apache server. Thus, when we enable FrontPage for a domain, everything for that domain must be owned by dhapache (the user that Apache runs as). There is no way around this.

If you enable FrontPage extensions for your domain, you will no longer be able to edit files outside of the FrontPage program, and you won't be able to publish, delete, or move stuff via a shell account or FTP.

If at some future date you no longer wish to use FrontPage extensions, contact Tech Support to manually reset your file's ownership back to you.
