Deleting FIle in ASP -- Permission denied Error

Hi,

I am working on Project in ASP

Whenever I delete file from the ASP code.

I get the Permission denied error.

Error Detail:

HTTP 500.100 - Internal Server Error - ASP error
Internet Information Services

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Technical Information (for support personnel)

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0046)
Permission denied
/AspImageProject/browse1.asp, line 26





How to resolve this. The code I am using is below


If Request.Form("btnDelete") = DeleteButtonLabel Then
    Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

    For Each strFileName In Request.Form("delete")
        objFSO.DeleteFile(Server.MapPath(ImageFilePath & "/" & _
            strFileName))
    Next

    Set objFSO = Nothing
End If


Many Thanks

This error is happening because the computer account which ASP runs under has no rights to delete the file or the file is in use. If you are sure that the file is not in use, then you can try changing the permissions on the directory where the file is.  Give the IUSR_<ComputerName> privileges to delete the file.

How was the file created?  

If it was not created using the script then the IIS user account does not have access to delete files.  You would need to go to the folder where you want to delete files and update your IIS user to have permissions to delete files from this directory.

I had similar issues with adding/editing files from scripts.  You just need to update the permissions to that folder (for whatever user that is running the webserver, usually IIS something).
