When Using FrontPage, I Receive The Error “Server Error. Cannot close file ‘/web/_vti_pvt/service.cnf’”

Article Rating: 1 / 5 Votes: 10

Note: Microsoft FrontPage extensions are no longer available on new accounts, because they are no longer supported by Microsoft.

This error is typically displayed when you are running low on disk space.

To check your disk storage usage:

1. Access the Hosting Control Panel  How To Access The Hosting Control Panel

2. Your disk storage usage is shown in the Status box on the right hand side of the screen

If you have extensive graphics, media files or databases, these can take up a significant amount of space. Some files can be deleted to save space, but if you are close to using up all your disk space we suggest you upgrade to a higher Hosting Package so as not to affect your Web site management.

Note As FrontPage Extensions require a lot of disk space, you may see this error message even if you have several megabytes of space available.

If you have several child Webs published with FrontPage keep in mind that FrontPage duplicates certain information into indices and hidden files. This adds "overhead", increasing the storage space required for your files. Microsoft's documentation notes, "FrontPage 97's optional full-text search indexes can take up to the same amount of disk space as your textual content."
