Error: Access to the path "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebSite1\troubleDocs\4040CA.pdf" is denied.

Hi

I am trying to upload a file in the folder using the following code:

 void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
               string fn = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(File1.PostedFile.FileName);
            string SaveLocation = Server.MapPath("troubleDocs")+ "\\" + fn;
            
            string fn2 = System.IO.Path.GetFileName(File2.PostedFile.FileName);
            string SaveLocation2 = Server.MapPath("partsDocs")+ "\\" + fn2;
            try
            {
                  File1.PostedFile.SaveAs(SaveLocation);
                  File2.PostedFile.SaveAs(SaveLocation2);
                  Response.Write("The file has been uploaded.");
            }
            catch ( Exception ex )
            {
                  Response.Write("Error: " + ex.Message + ex.StackTrace);
                              }

I gave permissions to my user account in the network and the ASP.NET Web admin account.

When I try to upload it gives me the following error.


Error: Access to the path "D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wwwdev\admintool\WebSite1\troubleDocs\4040CA.pdf" is denied. at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String str) at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize, Boolean useAsync, String msgPath, Boolean bFromProxy) at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode) at System.Web.HttpPostedFile.SaveAs(String filename) at ASP.Default_aspx.Button1_Click(Object sender, EventArgs e) in D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\wwwdev\admintool\WebSite1\Default.aspx:line 111



Any advice will be greatly appreciated. How do I upload my file to the folder troubleDocs?

Thanks
.

Hi,
Right click 'troubleDocs' > securty > permission and give IUSR_yourmacine and aspnet accounts write permission on the folder and try again.

IIS and System Admin is not my forte but you if you are running IIS 6.0, you might want to investigate into this whole "Applicatoin Pool" thingie.  

here are a couple links to get you started:
