If your FrontPage Extensions are not working properly, reinstalling them may solve the problem. Before you uninstall them, and install them again, try reinstalling them to get them to work. Also, reinstalling FrontPage Extensions will upgrade them to the latest version. Please note that prior to installation, you'll want to use the "Cleanup Extensions" section.

 Here are the following steps:

  1. To access Frontpage Extensions, click on the words "Frontpage Extensions" on the main screen of your cPanel interface
  2. To reinstall FrontPage Extensions, click on "Reinstall Extensions"

The following will appear (except the date will be the date you installed the extensions on, user will be your username, and the version may be different):
