Hi
mydir() function working fine on linux server, it can create directory

but when i am using this function on windows server, its always saying, permission denied
i have checked the permission its has full permission to read, write and execute
but its always saying: Warning: mkdir() [function.mkdir]: Permission denied in C:\Inetpub\vhosts\domainname\httpdocs\upload\createdir.php on line 4


<?php
$uploaddir = 'upload/';
$mydir = 1;
mkdir("$uploaddir/$mydir", 0777);

?>

am i missing something ?? why its working on linux base server but not windows base server.

The webserver user on windows does not have the permissions then webserver user must have the permissions or EverOne must have fullcontroll.

linux and windows use different ACL system on the filesystem.

So you have gave 777 permissions to the folders?
If you are on a shared hosting you might contact their support about that issue.
