I have just purchased a VPS account and am building a few Domains on it.  One of them is a WordPress blog and I am having some problems with folder/file rights for the admin.  When I try to upgrade a plugin I receive the following message:
"The "Rewrite URL Structure" feature, requires rewrite rules be present. Please run chmod 777 C:\fromtheculdesac/wp-content/w3tc/min/.htaccess, then"

Please advise.

Problem is that I have the PHP, MySQL and wordpress already at the site and I think this may not work as the kind of install that has a "Repair" option.

Ok.  I have resolved the problem.   In a nutshell,  the IUSR needed to have rights to modify wp-contents
and then problem solved.

My setting of the IUSR rights resolved the problem.
