Not the entire combination, but I'm pretty close on the FP extensions, which as best I can tell has never been done by the Alpha community. (At least no one on this list fessed up on knowing how to do it.) To get FP extensions installed, here's what I did:
1. Download the FP3.0 kit from MS, get the one for Digital Unix (only Alpha supported)
2. Download the FP Patch for Apache 1.3.3 from www.rtr.com
3. Download Apache 1.3.3 and COMPILE IT YOURSELF with the patch from #2.
4. You will have to edit the frontpage install script. Make the following edit:
case "$system" in
OSF1*) machine="alpha" ;;
Linux*) machine="alpha" ;; *******(this line is the edit... Yours will say INTEL)
HP-UX*) machine="hp700" ;;
AIX*) machine="rs6000" ;;
IRIX*) machine="sgi" ;;
SunOS*5.*sun4*) machine="solaris" ;;
5. Install FP...
At this point, you should have an installed Frontpage Extensions, with a patched Apache 1.3.3 daemon. The daemon will work RIGHT UP UNTIL you try to actually USE frontpage. Then you will probably get errors in your Apache error log that say you are runing FP as something other than ROOT. This is the problem I'm working on. Apparently, the SUID bit acts a little differently on Alpha Linux than Alpha DU.
If you can work through this problem, you'll be my hero, so please share it!
I'll post to the list when I get it working...
