IIS 8 error 403 on new site and folder

Hi,

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.

Thanks,
Tom

Ended up being a 403.1 error. A combination of folder permissions and some Handler Mappings were not turned on by default, dealt with both everything works.

Looks like a problem with IIS setup from when I moved over all the sites from a previous version.

Not really helpful.  Not much details given and i've done the basic things asked in the Installation document of OwnClowd for Windows like Handler Mappings and folder permissions, but still getting 403 error.

Do you have any details about what you have done?

I've even removed the Verbs Filtering, thinking it was caused by that, but apparently it's not the case.
