Microsoft® FrontPage® Blocking 11.46 Upgrades:Removal Required

For many cPanel & WHM customers, an existing installation of Microsoft® FrontPage® extensions on their Linux server(s) is blocking the ability to upgrade to cPanel & WHM software version 11.46. Microsoft® discontinued support for FrontPage® extensions on Linux servers in 2006.

Blockers are conditions that will not allow the cPanel & WHM update process (upcp) to install a particular version. For more information on upgrade blockers, visit

Upgrade Blockers.

Please note that the FrontPage® RPM and the FrontPage® opt mod (mod_frontpage) in EasyApache are separate entities. The presence of mod_frontpage will not block upgrades to cPanel & WHM version 11.46.


If you do not remove existing installations of Microsoft® FrontPage® extensions on your Linux server(s), you will be unable to upgrade to cPanel & WHM 11.46.

  2. Select the account for which you would like to uninstall the extensions.
