Security Groups Server 2008

I am running Server 2008 running IIS7.  I host my own website.  I created a user called psiweb and gave the user Domain User permissions.  This is the user that I use to start my website.  With just the Domain User permissions the website throws an error when I attempt to access from a browser.  If I give the psiweb user administrator or domain admin rights the web site works fine.  I do not want to give the psiweb logon administrator or domain admin rights for security purposes.   However I do want this logon to be able to start my website in IIS7.  What security group or permissions must I give this user to allow this logon to start my website?
Thanks!

Hi ,  I have not gotten a response to this questions yet.  I was wondering if it needs to be restated differently.  Please let me know if I have not made it clear as to what I am attempting to accomplish.

Thanks!

user needs admin permission to start the website, You are referring to when you go into iis manager you want to be able to start the website? I am thingking you need to explain exactly what you need this user to do. You say start website but do you really mean to be able to connect to the website?

In IIS 7 you have to specify Physical Path Credentials.  So I have my user psiweb who has full control of the directories under the Physical Path for my website.   If I have the user psiweb with only domain user rights then the website throws and error.  If I give the user psiweb administrator or domain admin rights it runs just fine.  I hope this has clarified this somewhat.  Thanks.

the error does not include the details, are you hitting the error from another machine or from the console of the IIS Server? If remotely log into the IIS Server and connect to the page again it should show the complete error detail

i agree, that error is pretty generic. It could be anything from .NET version, permission issue or something in a web.config.

Try going to http://localhost from that box and it should give you the full details.

I believe that the configuration of the error reporting portion of IIS is not complete.  I was able to access the website from the local machine and a remote machine.  I will attempt to configure the error reporting in IIS.
