New site creation in version 2

  Asked By: Jordon    Date: Dec 06    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 759

I am trying to create a new portal in the sps beta 2 , it gives me a message

Setup has detected that FrontPage Server Extensions or SharePoint Team
Services 1.0 is installed on the default virtual server. These must be
removed before Windows SharePoint Services can provision the sites on the
virtual server. For information about uninstalling FrontPage Server
Extensions or SharePoint Team Services 1.0 and using smigrate to migrate any
site content currently on the default virtual server, see stsread.htm on
your Windows SharePoint CD.

i checked the Admin console of iis and the sharepoint, there is no frontpage
extensions installed nor any sharepoint 1.0
all i got is sharepoint beta 2 version

any ideas what i need to do or am i missing something

I would check the Add/Remove programs option and the Windows components
section. I don't believe the Admin console  shows FP extensions  on the
IIS server. The installation documentation for SPS2 has instructions on
how it prefers IIS to be setup and mentions specifically to uncheck the
FP extensions option in the IIS setup. Uncheck this option in the
Add/Remove programs option and it will be uninstalled.

I had this problem as well. I had installed  FrontPage 2002 Extensions
when installing IIS (through Add/Remove programs and windows
components), then installed sharepoint  v2, then got this error.

I uninstalled the FP 2002 extension option and retried, but couldn't get
past the error. I spent a good 2hrs on this.

I ended up uninstalling  sharepoint, rebooting, uninstalling IIS,
rebooting, re-running windows  update, rebooting, installing IIS (withOUT
fp 2002 extensions, but with ASP.NET), rebooting, re-running windows
update, rebooting, then installing sharepoint.

Since then, I have been the happiest camper you've ever seen.
Sharepoint V2 is incredible. It is *exactly* what I wanted in
Sharepoint V1. I'm seriously considering running this BETA in
production because so far it's been a lot more stable than my V1
installation. Check this group and the msgroup for how many times I've
complained and begged for some insight into why SPS v1 is so flaky.

I got the impression that one should not put the portal  on the default  web site.
The readme file specifically said to cancel the first opportunity to create  a
portal, as it would probably not work anyway, and then to go create a new
Virtual Web Server, using the IIS Management Console, and to build your portal

I should say then... that I left out a crucial step in my detail. The
first time, I did try to connect to Default Web site  and the second time
I created a virtual  site called "TManage Internal" and pointed it to a
different wwwroot directory.
