Question


Why do install scripts not run sometimes. When I am trying to install Frontpage server extensions I run ./fp_srvadmn.sh. It won't run. I have had this happen with other scripts also. Why???

also, some scripts do run.

Did you make sure the file was executable? To make sure type chmod 755 filename. This command will make the file readable/writeable/executable to the owner and readable/executable to everyone else.
