I have a IIS5 website that has READ, WRITE checked under the Home Directory tab of the website properties - please see the attached.

How do I setup the same thing in IIS7?

Thanks.

Sorry, that does not help.

Can you explain how I do it from the IIS 7 Manager?

Hi,

Select the site or Vdir you want to set the perms for.

Click on Handler Mappings

Under Actions (On the right hand side pane) - Click on Edit Handler Permissions.

But to set Write Perms you have to select NTFS permission (not Handlers perms) which is not in IIS manager.

It's removed from the UI. You can select Explore option and then set the NTFS permissions on the folder from Windows Explorer.

gurutc,

After I clicked on Handler Mapping, I ionly see "Edit Feature Permissions" but do not see "Edit Handler Permissions".  

I see READ, SCRIPT are checked but EXECUTE is unchecked.  Should I select EXECUTE?

As for NTFS permission, what account should I grant write if I want everyone who hits the website to have write permission?

Please ellobrate again.  

Thanks.

Read/write is fine but execute is troublesome, as a user can write an executable and then execute the executable. For the NTFS permissions you would be setting permissions as per the Application Pool identity
