Using Frontpage Exensions with Apache -solution

I am running Freebsd 4.7-stable. I was instructed to install
apache with frontpage extensions on our internal webserver.
Discussing at lenght why we shouldn't do that resulting in
no movement on managements part. So...... here's what
I did (Thanks to Scot Hetzel for the steps).
I already had apache13 installed, configured. I didn't want
any messes and mod_frontpage looked messy. So
(after trying all the wrong stuff),
1. cd /usr/ports/www/apache13
2. cd /usr/ports/www/apache13-fp
This will also cause the running of fp_install.sh. So have
your frontpage info ready.
3. Here's where I got stuck. You can't start the apache server like
A) # /usr/local/sbin/apachectl start
B) #/usr/local/sbin/apachectl start_FP
You must start it: /usr/local/etc/rc.d/apache.sh start
Once I did this, I was able to publish from Frontpage 2000 to
my apache webserver.
I have not yet been successful in implimenting named virtual hosts
with frontpage extension, so that part of the story continues.
thanks for the help,
