Root Permissions

I have installed IIS10 in Windows 10.
Inetpub is now in the program list.
How do I add permissions to the Root directory ?
I am not a programmer, so be specific.

Thank you for the instructions.
In step 5, do I add permissions to all 6 in the list starting with Creator/Owner ?

Please clarify what you are trying to do?

The only permissions c:\inetpub\wwwroot needs it already has to allow a user accessing the website to see content.

Is this a learning excersise?

Hello Arnold,
I need to add some test code to Root and I need permissions in order to copy them to the folder.
It doesn't matter how I do this, whether it's through Admin Tools or the way Peter suggested.
When I click on the Security Tab as per step 5 I have these options -
creator/owner
system
administrators
users
iis and
trusted installer

How would you set permissions so code can be run in localhost ?

Usually the code you are developing should be published to work, at times it can not be just dropped in.

As part of the iis configuration via the administrative tool to enable extensions, WebDAV to allow the application in which you are developing to publish those documents with any dll's etc.

What language are you developing in?
Asp.net, etc ir you are using php?

Process is best learned if this is the field you are going into.

If you get accostoned to granting your own user direct access to the site, once you start working in the field, no administrator will grant you that type of access as it exposes, compromising security.

There are publications for best practices for different applications..

No I'm not going to be a programmer. All I want to do is to get PHP installed so I can run 2 programs once in a while.
I am the only user on my PC, so how do I set permissions for myself ?

Get notepad++ which will prompt you to authorized

What are you using to create php code?

Uac usually will prompt you for approval..

The install... You have to be more specific what it is and what you are trying to do.

Commonly, if you have a single account, it is an administrative account. When copying data .......

Usually for a web site, , the IIS_IUSRS group has Read and Execute and List folder contents permissions for web site pages and code to be read and executed.
To drop in code, all you need is your account to have Read, Modify, and Write permissions to copy or modify files for that folder.
