root permission are what? chown root:root? Which chmod permissions?

Do you have your Apache running as root? Why are root permissions -
whatever that means for you - needed? If you mean that scripts
controlled by the Apache are running as root, then it is surely a bad
thing and a high risk. Something like that is a fair reason not to use
Frontpage Extensions. Use WebDAV instead.
