On IIS 6 I have the following
C:\WEBSITES\WEBSHOPSYS\shops\mywebshop.com\public_html\

I want to give it access to includefiles in
C:\WEBSITES\WEBSHOPSYS\includes\

The option "Enable parent paths" gives, what I understand, access to all folders on the server. I want to limit that to
C:\WEBSITES\WEBSHOPSYS\includes\
or
C:\WEBSITES\WEBSHOPSYS\


How do I do this?

Hi,

sorry to tell you this, but you can't.

you will be better off copying the data into the html_pub folder, or depending on the web root structure, you might be able to make a virtual directory that can be referred by your application/s.

Cheers.
