  • Parent path in IIS 6

    WordPress Hosting on SSD Servers
    IIS 6 is locked down by default. Parent Paths is a way for a hacker to
    navigate to a folder on the web server that has execute permissions, and in
    that way execute scripts that you normally shouldn't and wouldn't execute.
    If you enable this, make sure that you do not give execute permissions to a
    parent folder. To enable Parent Paths, follow these steps:

    a.. Click Start->Programs->Administrative Tools->Internet Information
    b.. Expand Web Sites and right click the web site you want to enable this
    for (i.e Default Web Site), click Properties
    c.. Click the Home directory tab and click the Configuration button
    d.. Click on the Options tab
    e.. Check the box Enable Parent Paths
