how to set permission on hosting server for aspnet user
Posted on 2005-03-02
I have 'working' web application that will allow a user to select a .jpg file to upload both the selected file and a thumbnail of the file. This all works fine on localhost, but when I deploy I get an access denied type error. As the app is running with aspnet user rights on both local and the remote I have given, through IIS manager write access to correct directory for anonymous user and this seems to work as expected on the localhost.
I publish the application via VS.net using the frontpage extenstions. My question is if I have set the correct permission on locacal host with IIS manager, won't the permisisons on the directory in the web get copied to the remote server? Unfortunately, the hosting company, Godaddy, doesn't provide much in the way of tech assistance for $8/mon. hosting fee, so I'm on my own there. The only thing they are able to tell me is that I should have control over the directory permissions for dirs in my web and can set them with frontpage or IIS??
I'm pretty new to IIS and publish web sites, so I'm probably missing something pretty simple. Thanks
