Hi

I have opened a browser and type http://localhost, but I am getting the error "You are not authorized to view this page".

What is the reason behind this and how to fix it.

Regards

There is one solution given
"Can u tell who are the members in your "wwwroot properties" - security tab?

There should be-
1. Everyone with Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, and Read rights
2. Users (Machinename\Users) with above permissions
3. VS Developers (Machinename\VS Developers) with above & Modify and Write permissions
4. Launch IIS Process Account (MachineName\IWAM_...) with Deny Write permission
5. Internet Guest Account (MachineName\IUSR_...) with Deny Write permission

Check these and try to access. "

I want to know where is wwwroot in IIS

IIS6
Just open your IIS >> go to your website >> right click and go to properties >> under home directory >> check the localpath for the document root folder of your website

IIS7
your website name > right click >> manage website >> advance settings  >> check the physical path for the document root folder of your website

Thereafter assign the permission.

Hi

Sorry for the late response. I have right clicked on the website and then click on properties. Then under the home directory local path textbox is disabled.

When you say right click on website you mean the folder with the name website or the virtual folder.

Please advice
