Setting Correction User Permissions To Read & Write Files with Vista RRS feed

  • Question

  • User-450022697 posted

    Hi I have enabled IIS7 via windows vista.

    I am having problems setting the correct permission to read and write files from folders within the "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\" folder.

    If I try to run a simple asp script to create a text file from within the "C:\inetpub\wwwroot\", I get an a permission denied error. If I try to create the file from another folder I e.g. "C:\test" I am able to create thte text file with no errors.

    I have tried giving the IIS_IUSRS and IUSR modify and full control, but I still cannot open or write a file.

    Does anyone know what user account and permission I need to change?

     

    Thanks

    Hi shinden,

    I would recommend using Filemon. Filemon can log file system activity on a system in real-time, this will help you find out the permission issue.

    hi

    One possibility is to use the administrator account

    Thanks for your reply.

    I am the administrator of my machine and also tried adding full control to the administrator and administator users, but it didn't solve the problem.
