Mike, you didn't say what platform you are running. With FBSD-xx Unix, I
have been running FP2002 just fine on several machines with the latest
Apache -- even with-ssl. And, yes, if you expect to logon FP users, you
must have the extensions. Also, to use any of the FP special
functionalities, the extensions are necessary. I use installs right out of
the ports -- no problem, but a little bit of tweaking.

In fact, have even updated the installs and they are still working fine --
I was braced for FP to break, but it didn't... whew!

With RTR and so many other places, I found the info to be outdated and
almost useless for application to the latest versions of FP installs. At
least, that is what I found in my searches when first doing
installs/updates. I learned a few things from those old sites, but not the
key things I needed. My apologies if they have been updated since my last
