What are the implications of this, for a FrontPage website? Comments from hosting company support:--

Moving onto FrontPage, you were receiving an error when attempting to publish to the server.

"Server error: the folder "/" is marked executable. You are not allowed to put files into an executable folder on this server"

I remedied this issue by clicking the checkbox 'allow authors to upload executables' under the security tab of Frontpage.

The consequences for this "hosting support" workaround are not good - much better to have the frontpage server extensions configured with the correct permissions, for scripts only and not to include "executables". This was what I was told when I spoke with the US based hosting support for my hosting account who quickly implemented the correct settings.

The moral here is, if in doubt ask somebody else

(we all make mistakes)
