The Fpsrvadm utility is a command-line application for UNIX and Microsoft® Windows NT®. It installs the Microsoft® FrontPage® Server Extensions on Web sites, and performs all administrative operations on FrontPage-extended webs, such as updating them with new server extensions, uninstalling the server extensions, and checking that the server extensions are properly configured on a FrontPage-extended web. Fpsrvadm can be run even when the Web server is not running (although the Web server administration service for your server may need to be running).
Fpsrvadm must run on the server machine containing the FrontPage Server Extensions. To remotely administer the FrontPage Server Extensions from a PC, use the Fpremadm utility or the HTML Administration Forms.
