Folder Permissions in Win 2008 for IIS 7.5 to Show Web Pages
Posted on 2013-05-13
I have a web server running Windows 2008 and IIS 7.5
I have 3 developers, Tom, Dick & Harry, each with their own folder, and each with multiple websites underneath:
This is an Active Directory environment.
What I want to do is this...
Only Tom can access the e:\tom folder
Only Dick can access the e:\dick folder
Only Harry can access the e:\harry folder
I've done this by removing the general "Domain Users" from these 3 folders and that works fine. Via Remote Desktop, they can all see the E: drive but can't get into each others folders. That's good.
However, now when I try to access the sites via a web browser, I'm getting 500 internal errors. I'm thinking it is security related, since that is the only thing I changed.
What "Object Type" / User do I need to add back in so these directories can be "surfed" ?
Keep in mind, I don't want the developers (outside contractors) to be able to access each other's folders & get source code.
I remember in older Windows / IIS there was IUSR_ and IWAM_ but I don't see those anymore...
