Windows Server Web Edition - IIS writing with NO PERMISSIONS SET!
Posted on 2007-10-09
I've just got a simple question about Windows Server 2003 Web Edition and IIS.
I haven't set any permissions on ANY files at all, and I notice that my ASP scripts run fine and write to required files WITHOUT ME SETTING PERMISSIONS. Is this something to be worried about or is this normal Web Edition behavior? I notice that all folders on this hard drive have (the data hard drive, not the system hard drive) have inherited the Authenticated Users group in the security tab from the drive's permissions. I've not seen this before. Is this normal? I've used Server 2003 Standard a lot and not seen this, but I'm new to Web Edition.
Again, the IUSR account can apparently write WITHOUT ME SETTING PERMISSIONS. Please explain.
