Hello all,

I had a everyone share on my wwwroot with a asp.net web app on IIS7.  Once I took off the wwwroot everyone share and just added my user account that along with the IIS_ISRS account I added and network service it is still throwing the 500 internal server error.  It has anonymous auth enabled and basic and windows is disabled.  I enabled basic auth as well.  The error is coming up:

can't read configuration file so the web.config of course.  What am I doing wrong?

What identity do you have configured for your application pool?  Assuming the default for IIS, you will need to configure the file permissions so that the app pool identity has permissions to read the files.

You may find this documentation helpful.
