Hi,

I have little experience of IIS but have been told to make a dirctory on it world-writable for IUSR_servername. How do I do this with IIS 4? Think I have done it but the script still won't work so I guess not.

Any ideas?

on the web server, open up NT Explorer, and go find the directory that you want to change (example c:\inetpub\myweb\mydirectory)

right click on the directory name, and select properties. Goto Security, and add the IUSER_(servername) account if it's not there already. give this user Read/Write/Change permissions.

that's it.
