Enable IIS Application functionality for a folder.


Use this command to enable execute permission for IIS Applications in the current folder.

By default, subfolders inherit the enabled status of their parent. This remains the case until you reset the status of a child. Once reset, the child’s status is no longer inherited.


All resellers have access to this command.

Implementation on eNom.com

Log on to webhostingtest.ehost-services.com with Login ID resellwebid, password resellwebpw.


In the IIS Application line, the Create link calls the EnableFolderApp command.


The query must meet the following requirements:

  • The login ID and password must be valid.
  • The Web hosting account must belong to this account.
  • The folder must already exist (this command does not create it).
