I am trying to copy a recently uploaded file from one directory to another.

This is the code:

 Set MyFile = ScriptObject.CreateTextFile(Left(Server.mappath(Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO")),pathEnd)&"fpdb\"&filename)
 
 For i = 1 to LenB(value)
       MyFile.Write chr(AscB(MidB(value,i,1)))
 Next
 
 MyFile.Close
 Set MyFile=Nothing
 Set ScriptObject=Nothing
 Set UploadRequest=Nothing
 
response.write server.mappath("fpdb/"&filename)
response.write server.mappath("uploads/"&filename)

Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
FSO.CopyFile server.mappath("fpdb\"&filename), server.mappath("uploads\"&filename), True
Set FSO = Nothing

And this is what I get:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0046'

Permission denied

/outputFile.asp, line 52

Line 52 is the FSO.CopyFile line.

Thanks!

you need to give the ISUR_<machine_name> account RWD rights on the dir that you want to write to.

if this is a server then ask the system admin. they will know what you mean if you say the web server account needs rwd permissions on the dir in question.
