Apologies for the misunderstandings below, I was frustrated after spending
hours trying to configure Apache, ultimatley I ended up killing it
completely. I'm already using Webmin and I think that is one utility that
after using I cant do with out, but my primary needs are to be able to
publish to it from a Windows machine running Frontpage. I'm not a programmer
and my scripting knowledge is nil, that rules out Perl etc.
