FP 2002 server extensions and Apache 2.0.49


I've installed the frontpage server extensions on my apache 2.0.49 web server. It runs on a Fedora Core 2 linux box. The installation seems to be OK but when I try to publish my web site via Frontpage 2002, I get a server error.

On my linux box, when I create my subweb, I get:

./owsadm.exe -o create -web /myweb -xu fpuser -p 8080

Starting create, port: 8080, web: "/myweb".

Created: 24 Jan 2005 02:31:00 -0000
Creating web an_url/myweb.
Chowning Content in service /myweb.
Install completed.

In frontpage, when I try to publish to an_url/myweb, I get:

Unable to open an_url/myweb
Server error:
Possible causes:
1. The web server may not have the frontpage server extensions installed.
2. The web server may be temporarily out of service.
3. If you are connecting through a proxy server, the proxy settings may be incorrect.
4. An error may have occured in the web server.

I've checked my httpd/access_log and httpd/error_log files and there is nothing there to help me. My server is online. It is working properly and I'm not connecting through a proxy server.

To install the fp extensions, I've downloaded the package from Ready-to-run software site and followed the instructions on Microsoft Sharepoint Team Services site .

I'm really no expert... What am I missing here?

Does anyone have an idea of what's going on?

Thank you,

I tried "Open web" with the parameter an_url/myweb and got the following messages

in client FP 2002:
The folder an_url/myweb isn't accessible. The folder may be located in a unavailable location, protected with a password or the filename contains a / or \.

in httpd/error_log file:
[Wed Jan 26 18:47:50 2005] [error] (13)Permission denied: unable to connect to cgi daemon after multiple tries: /usr/local/frontpage/version5.0/apache-fp/_vti_bin/fpexe

If anyone can help me...
