IIS 7.0 PHP 5.2 Permissions Issue (GoDaddy)
Web Server Access to Files and Configuration Directories
I unzipped the concrete18.104.22.168 folder into a sub directory off my root folder and made the whole tree read and write. I am still getting a fail for this test.
There seems to be tons of support for Apache servers in these forms, but not much in the way of IIS support. Can anyone offer some help for this issue?
Download Filezilla and ftp to your host. Right click on the folder in question and select 'File Permission' (or what it might be in English since I'm on a Swedish installation).
500 'SITE CHMOD 755 files': command not understood
Again I think this has to do with the Windows Environment. I was able to set all of the permissions via GoDaddy's FTP File Manager, but I am still having no luck.
...anyways, my IIS install was for evaluation only and I decided to go for Apache once I had settled for concrete5 mostly because the support in the forums and generally on the internet is better for Apache.
Right now I'm running IIS and Apache side by side on the same server (I know it might not be the best practice) with two concrete5 sites and two simple html sites on Apache and two .ASP sites on IIS.
In my case, it turned out that I was granting write access to the wrong user. I was trying to grant access to the system accounts that IIS7 uses to access the file system by default.
I have a special dedicated user account set up on the server and set the site to use that account to access its files. I don't know whether you can do this yourself in a shared hosting environment, but I set this through "Basic settings" for each of my web sites, then set the "Connect as..." to use the user account I set up.
Then I went to the file system and granted my user write access.
If this is not possible in your hosting control panel, I would try contacting the hosting support team and confirming which account your site is using to access your web document file system.
