NG Hosting provisioning fails with the error message below:
FrontPage extensions are not installed on Apache service
The problem also may appear in POA Customer CP when trying to uninstall FrontPage from the website management page, the error below is returned:
FrontPage is not supported on NG Hosting. Actually POA will not allow to activate FrontPage on brand new subscription with NG Hosting, the error message 'FrontPage extensions are not installed on Apache service' will appear in the POA log.
The only known way how FrontPage support may be activated on NG Hosting subscription is migration from Legacy Linux Shared Hosting to NG Hosting. Migration tool will throw the error message:

However, Provider may ignore the error message and continue migration, as a result subscription will be migrated to NG Hosting cluster and usage of FrontPage resource will not be reset to 0.
The problem is going to be solved in POA 5.5. In the mean time contact Parallels Support Team to resolve the problem.
