PHPMicrosoft IIS Web Server
5 Comments1 Solution39 ViewsLast Modified:
I am not a programmer but have two programs in PHP code that I have to
run from time to time.
IIS Express and PHP 8.0 are installed on this Windows 10 desktop computer.
I am able to run localhost/helloworld.htm successfully which would seem
to indicate that the server is installed properly.
Now I need to set permissions so that I can read and write in PHP.
So how do I set full control in order to run this code?
Do I need to set permissions on the entire INETPUB file or just the
wwwroot folder?
Can this be done by right clicking on the file, choosing Properties,
then Security, then  Edit  to enable full control?
These are in  the drop down menu -

Creator Owner
Trusted Installer

Do all of these need full control?
I believe some of these already have partial permissions but not full
I am using the standard Default Website.
Am I  on the right track or out in left field?
