Run iis app with domain account

Trying to setup a web site to give customers the ability to enter data into a spreadsheet.
I have all that working under my own credentials.
What settings do I need to adjust to the web site to ensure when they are running it, that it's using the service account credentials?

you need to make sure that the APP pool associated with the website, click the identity tab and enter the domain account you want to use there... Then restart the app pool.

So, I need a new app pool?  I don't want these credentials applied to any other site.

Ok, I found identity for app pool, but why wouldn't I set this in the 'connect as' under basic settings for the site?

Chad FranksSenior System EngineerCommented:
the app pool is what drives the whole site.  the connect as, is the permissions to the site, whether or not a user has to authenticate or not to view the site.  The app pool runs all the IIS assemblies within the site.  Think of the APP pool as the service the site runs under.

Yes, I always create new APP pools for sites that require things outside of the norm.  Make sure you select the correct version of .NET when installing a new APP Pool

Ok, that worked, but I had also set it under connect as.  Can you please confirm I should actually remove it from there, yes?

sirbountyAuthor Commented:
Hmm - nope, that then prompts me for credentials.
So, I guess I need it in both places...

As you said permission to enter the site and then the permission to modify the file.  Am I right?

permission to whom can access the site.  if its set to anonymous, then the user wont be prompted for credentials,
