I’m working on a small ASP.NET application at home (VS 2008). It is running under IIS on my Vista machine. I’ve got it so that it will show photos from a folder on an external hard drive. I’ve set up the folder on the external hard drive as a web site
in IIS on my machine. The intent is to let my family “upload” photos to this secondary web site, because the external HD is quite large, etc.
OK, everything seems to be going fine. However, I know that I’ve got to give the IIS_IUSRS account write access privileges, so that users can upload to this folder, and delete photos from it, etc, through the primary web site I’m writing. However, when
I get into IIS in Vista and look at this secondary web site on the external HD, IIS does not allow me to change the permissions on anything to that web site. There is no tab in the
Edit Permissions dialog box to edit security settings on anything for this secondary web site. Why is that, and how do I fix it so that I can apply write/delete permissions to files within the folder that is my secondary web site?
