Not sure what you mean that frontpage caused apache to bind to all IP' shouldn't...

The frontpage apache module should respect any of the virtual hosts or virtual IP's that you have set up in apache. The module is just a way for apache to run the fp.exe wrapper script around the frontpage binary. I don't know how it would even be able to force apache to bind to anything...

Are you sure about that ???

I just learned that if you run Apache+Frontpage, you can't teach Apache to
only listen on a single IP address.  For some reason, Frontpage causes
Apache to always bind to all IP addresses.  Somehow, this stupidity doesn't
really surprise me too much.

The reason I wanted to do this is because I have a machine I want to
set jails up on, so I can run multiple instances of Apache.  But I didn't
want to mess with the existing Apache installation right now.

Anyway ... in the long run I've got two choices:
1) Get Apache+Frontpage running in a jail so it will quit fscking up the other
   stuff I'm trying to do on this machine
2) Find some alternative to frontpage to provide frontpage services that
   behaves like a proper server.

My questions are (respectively):
1) Does anyone have Apache+Frontpage successfully running in a jail? I just
thought I'd ask before I spent (wasted?) a lot of time trying to make it
2) Can anyone suggest an alternative to Apache+Frontpage? I prefer scp myself
(and there are even spiffy GUI scp clients for Windows) but many of these
clients _insist_ on using Frontpage, so I _must_ continue to cater to them.

TIA for any answers.
