Hi guys,

I am getting the followinf error when executing the code in the snippet:

Error : System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'D:\WWWRoot\absolutedivorce.com\www\new' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

Line 24:         m_document = new XmlDocument();

Line 25:         m_document.Load(schema);

Line 26:     }
 

This only occurs on my hosted space, it works fine locally tested. They claim that the IUSR user account has permission to read the folder in question and i have checked that the 2.0 framework is the target framework for this directory in the web folder.
 

Any suggesions?
 

Thanks

Hi, thanks for the reply. Yes i put that in the web.config file in the sub directory where these files are and i got the same error. I put it here:
<authentication mode="Windows"/>
<identity impersonate="false" />

hi....

i think you are assigning the "file name" to "schema"......

use it as follows

schema = server.MapPath("FIleLocation");

but before doing it you must have the file in the specified location.
