Folder Permissions

Discussion in 'General troubleshooting' started by PaulM, Feb 2, 2010.

  1. Hi, this may be a dumb question to all the .net fundies. I have a site in classic ASP, and am using an upload component. In the past I have had to set permissions for IUSER on the folders I wanted to upload into. I have never worked with IIS 7 before, can you let me know how to go about this? Basically users must be able to upload into a certain folder and its subdirectories, but no other folders.

    Usually all I do is give IUSER the appropriate folder rights in order to upload and create folders, I don't know where to start on your platform - can you please help point me in the right direction? Thanks.

    You shouldn't need to do anything with the permission. By default, the ASPNet IUSR which is the user your application will use to authenticate itself against IIS 7 should already have full Read and write permission to your root and all the folders and contents within it.
