    It seems whenever a user tries to connect to their web site via FrontPage, the server generates a 500 server error message. The message is due to the permissions on the server.pwd file being changed to the following:

    ---x-wx--T 1 username groupname 58 Oct 19 11:38 service.pwd*

    I change the permissions to 600 and as soon as you try to connect the permissions are change again. This issue is affecting all FrontPage enabled accounts on this server.

    The server specs are:

    WHM 9.9.3 cPanel 9.9.2-R7
    RedHat Enterprise 3 i686 - WHM X v3.1.0

    I have tried:
    uninstalling
    installing
    /scripts/updatefrontpage

    None of the above works. Could someone please help shed some light on this.

    Fix has been posted

    For now, you need to fix it per user :

    chmod 600 /home/username/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd
    chattr +i /home/username/public_html/_vti_pvt/service.pwd

    Thanks Nick. I planned on doing this. However what I would like to know are the following:

    1. Is this a known bug?
    2. What is causing this issue?
    3. Is there a permanent fix to this?

    I just discovered it is affecting two of my servers.
