Error Accessing Path

Posted: July 30, 2010 in .Net

Today is a day full of errors, when I fixed one error another error came while trying to run my hosted application. This time it was “Access to the path ‘C:\inetpub\wwwroot\……’ is denied.

Full error is as follows,

Access to the path ‘C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Mining2 Setup\Images\temp\tempImage.png’ is denied.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path ‘C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Mining2 Setup\Images\temp\tempImage.png’ is denied.

The issue here was generated by a code written in my application which tries to access an image named tempImage.png in the said folder (Images\temp).

The reason for this is when you install IIS 7 the account used by the application pool (IIS_IUSRS) is not given access to the folder Images\temp. Since it is created by the application I just installed.

To sort out the issue give write permission to the folder Images\temp for the account IIS_IUSRS using the security tab in the folder properties page.
