    We recently added a search page to our website using FrontPage 2000. We have FrontPage 2002 extensions installed on our server. When we first added the search page we received a service not working error. We were able to narrow that issue down to being a Microsoft Indexing Server that was not enabled. We enabled the server and now the search page works but does not find results for anything. We recalculated the subweb and the links within FrontPage. This has not fixed our problem. We have thought maybe the indexing server does not know which database to search or the database is not being created by frontpage. We do not know enough about the server side of this to know how to trouble shoot such an issue. Any help would be much appreciated.

    I have also tried the following:

    1. Open IIS Manager.
    2. Open the Computer icon.
    3. Click Web Service Extensions.
    4. Make sure FrontPage Server Extensions 2002, Indexing
    Service, and Internet Data Connector are all Allowed.
    5. Under Web Sites, display the Properties dialog box for
    your virtual server.
    6. On the Home Directory Tab, make sure Index This
    Resource is checked.
    7. Click OK and try again.

    Web Service Extensions is not available as an option on my server. Do you know why?

    Any Help would be greatly appreciated.
