Most common Frontpage 403 Forbidden error

The most common error you get when publishing  the site by using FrontPage is

403 Forbidden error

Forbidden You don’t have permission to access /_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request. Apache/x.x.x Server at yourdomain.com Port 80

To solve this, login to your server as root.

Find  out the owner for your domain where you seems to have the “403 Forbidden error”

Then fire the following command one by one :

touch /home/username/public_html/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe

  • or

touch ~username/public_html/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.exe

chown username.username ~username/public_html/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.ex

chmod 644 ~username/public_html/_vti_bin/_vti_aut/author.ex

If you are having Frontpage problem with the addon domain then change the path as per your addon domain document root path and create a author.ex file under your addon domain.Then try to publish your site by using Frontpage
