Does FrontPage generate .htaccess files?

  peabody 20:28 01 Oct 2006

I just noticed a .htaccess file in the www root for one of my websites (I've *d out the URL and username):

# -FrontPage-

IndexIgnore .htaccess */.??* *~ *# */HEADER* */README* */_vti*

order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from all
order deny,allow
deny from all
AuthName www.*********
AuthUserFile /home/******/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
AuthGroupFile /home/******/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.grp

I used Dreamweaver to create the site but perhaps did some editing with FrontPage and uploaded the filke (I guess).

It seems to have generated a password file for no earthly reason.

Any idea why it does this? The site requires no secure .htaccess.

Anybody aware of this happening before?

At least two of my accounts have .htaccess files in the cgi-bin folder. I don't use FP or even DW, so it's obviously quite normal.

will provide .htaccess in the cgi bin.
