Pre requisite issue - file system permissions

I’m trying to get this set up on IIS 7, windows server 2008r2. I’ve done the fiddly bits and got to the CMS install, but the first page is failing on ‘file system permissions’.

I understand why the folder requires them, but I have no idea what permissions I should be setting. Is it done in IIS or is it done at file level in windows explorer?


It’s probably filesystem permissions (I say probably because IIS can also limit writing at it’s own configuration level, but I believe the default is to allow whatever the filesystem allows). You need to allow whatever user IIS is running as to write to those locations.

I’ve answered my own question…

the domain\IIS_USR user needs to be given file system modify access to the folder containing the Xibo files under wwwroot
