Controlling Folder Access

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by Austin, Mar 18, 2015.

  1. Hello! I am still newer to hosting websites and essentially I am wondering if I can deny permission to a "scripts" folder?

    I have an AngularJS app with some script files and I would like to keep users off from those files/folders (but let my Angular app still reach them), is there any code or controls I can use to do this?

    Hi Austin,

    I'm afraid we don't have a way for you to manage your permissions, but you can place those files in an /App_Data folder off the root of your account. That's a special folder protected by IIS which is not accessible through the web but can be read by your application.

  3. Okay, thanks!

    I have another question now (I can make new topic if need be), I am suddenly getting a pop-up that appears on every reload/redirect stating

    "Authentication Required" The server requires a username and password. The server says

    The weird part is that works fine (separate angularjs app), but when I go to it gives me this annoying pop-up non-stop.
    Any ideas?

    (Already made sure my Authentication on IIS was set to anonymous enabled)

    I tested the page you provided and didn't get any pop up asking for password.

    Do I have to log into

  5. I got a hold of Winhost support and they fixed it for me. :)

    I had to disable a form security option in IIS.
