Hi,
the only operation that I performed were share c:\inetpub\wwwroot folder with the user administrator without removing existing ACLS.
After this, web site show me this error:

Errore HTTP 401.3 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to an ACL set on the requested resource

Open in new window


If I create a new simple html page, I obtain the same error.
If I give "everyone" rights to this html page, it works.

How can I properly restore acls on that c:\inetpub\wwwroot?

Thankyou

It sounds like you may have removed the inherited permissions that are present on \wwwroot.

The default permissions on inetpub/wwwroot are as follows:

USER                                       Permissions                                  Comments:
CREATOR OWNER                      Special permissions       Equivalent to Full control.
                                                                                 Applies to subfolders and files only.
                                                                                 Inherited from \inetpub.

SYSTEM                                      Full control               Inherited from \inetpub.

Administrators                              Full control               Inherited from \inetpub.

Users                                      Read & execute
                                                List folder contents
                                                Read                               Inherited from \inetpub.
