We have a software that has a local website built into the server. (we haven't wrote it, it was provided to use from the software company, we have only set it up on our server 2008 IIS 7)
The website interface searches documents that are located in the software as word document. We have moved the documents to a share folder on our server. So here is the question:
The local website does not have permission to open the documents on the share folder. How can I give that website permission to the share folder so it can open the files from the website? I tried to add the name of the server to the security of that folder but it did not work. Do I need to configure a network user to IIS and add that network user to the security of that share folder? If yes how can I do that?
Please only complete comments. I would really appreciate it since it is urgent.
Thank you all,
