I’m trying to save an image to a folder in .NET C# but I get this exception:
Access to the path 'C:inetpubwwwrootmysiteimagessavehere' is denied.The error occured at mscorlib because at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.FileStream.Init(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, Int32 rights, Boolean useRights, FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize, FileOptions options, SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES secAttrs, String msgPath, Boolean bFromProxy, Boolean useLongPath) at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize, FileOptions options, String msgPath, Boolean bFromProxy) at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode)
I gave full control to this folder (savehere) to
network service and
iis_iusrs, even gave full control to
everyone but still getting this exception.
I tried to give access via explorer and via IIS manager, still no luck
I’m doing it on Windows server 2008 R2 and IIS 7.5, Who do I need to give access?
You need to find out from the application pool for the website what is the identity it is running under (by default this is
Application Pool Identity) and grant that the correct permissions.
