Set a scripting language
You can specify general settings for a virtual server on the Change
Configuration Settings page in the following categories:
If you need to stop users from publishing to the Web site while you perform
maintenance tasks, you can disable authoring. Note that when you disable
authoring, no users can publish new information to the site. Be sure you notify
users before you disable authoring, so they do not lose any current work.
Periodically, the server sends e-mail notification or other messages to
users of your site or to you, the administrator. In this section, you can
specify the SMTP mail server to use for these messages. You also can type the From and
Reply-to address to use for these messages, and specify which mail
encoding option and character set to use in the e-mail messages.
The speed with which a Web server responds to
requests from a client depends a lot on the size
of the Web site, particularly the number
of pages and the other files it contains. You can improve a Web site's response time by
tuning it. When you tune a Web site, Microsoft FrontPage Server Extensions 2002 sets aside a certain amount
space as a cache for the Web site, based on the number of Web pages. For example, you can
tune a Web site for less than 100 pages or for more than 1,000, or use the
custom setting and fill in your own cache sizes. You can
use the default cache settings or specify settings or specify settings for the in-memory document
the include file
cache, the image file
cache, and the maximum cached document size.

performance tuning. With FrontPage Server Extensions 2002, you use the Change Configuration Settings
