Cannot publish site with Frontpage Extensions, front page reporting incorrect password

Problem: I can no longer publish a site with Frontpage Extensions it says I have the wrong password...

Solution: Sometimes, under (as-yet unknown) conditions, the CPanel stored Frontpage password can become unreadable on the server.

Here are the steps to fix this:
  1. Disable frontpage extensions in the site configuration.
  2. Enable frontpage extensions in the site configuration

Try and publish again, if it still doesn't work for you, try these steps:
  1. Disable frontpage in the site settings.
  2. Remove all of the directories on the site with a _ at the beginning.
  3. Remove the .htaccess file.
  4. Enable frontpage extensions in the site settings.

If you are still having a problem with the password after this, please submit a support ticket with your Domain name,  Frontpage password, Frontpage version, and the exact steps you are using to reproduce the problem.
