IIS 8 error 403 on new site and folder
Posted on 2013-05-23
I have a new production install of Win 2012 for a standalone web server, no AD. I transferred over many sites from IIS 6 without many issues.
When I create a new site in IIS 8 and point it to a new folder I get a 403 error. The folder for the sites is on a different drive and not inet default folder. I have checked the permissions of the folder and I believe matched the other working folders permissions, but doesn't work.
To create a new folder I need to use robocopy with the /SEC flag and just duplicate an existing folder. This is an okay work around for now.
So the question. Since it is the folder permissions that are the problem, how do I compare ALL the permissions for a working folder to a new folder? Looking at the security tab is not the answer as through that I have them identical.
