My scripts cannot write files after I installed FrontPage extensions

When you install FrontPage, FrontPage sets the user permissions on your wwwroot to read-only.  This can cause problems for scripts which require the ability to write to a file, say, a log file for example.  This is by design, according to Microsoft.

If you have installed FrontPage extensions and require write/modify privileges for your apps, please open a support ticket and we will assign the appropriate permissions.
