" http://www.cocoavillagepublishing.com/development/tools/openbsd/tips/mod_frontpage/Have a look at this and see if it works for your FrontPage needs, but see if you can get it supported in a chroot environment.
To the community, here are some notes for using Mirfak to reimplement mod_frontpage and a test port and i386 package that installs the extensions from Microsoft automatically by using pax during the build to archive the files the port make untarred from fp50.bsdi.tar.z and the the pkg/INSTALL script takes the pax and unarchives after the package install and then changes permissions. This may or may not be ideal, but seems to work.
This approach avoids having to do the fp-patch to apache, but the down side of the approach is having to use setuid.
As the layout is now, you would have to use the "-u" option of httpd.
I hope by posting here, some can benefit, and perhaps generate some discussion and thoughts on the merrit of modifying the test port so that it could run with httpd chrooted, w/o -u, and any perceived licensing issues.
The port implements http://sourceforge.net/projects/mirfak/ "
