From the Process Monitor results the domain name user listed "username1" has the wrong permissions or credentials. What I noted that is different today is that the process monitor is not recording the 401 unauthorized page error ...although the error is happening in the browser. =============================================== IIS LOG: =============================================== #Software: Microsoft Internet Information Services 7.0 #Version: 1.0 #Date: 2011-08-16 #Fields: date time s-ip cs-method cs-uri-stem cs-uri-query s-port cs-username c-ip cs(User-Agent) sc-status sc-substatus sc-win32-status time-taken 2011-08-16 10.1 GET /app Name - 80 - 10.1 Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 7.0; Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; Trident/5.0; SLCC2; . I also have a test regular user account that behaves same as my regular logon account.I have 3 other regular users test this for me and same behavior for all regular users - no access to app.I am pretty sure when I copied the files from my local machine to remote server, I copied the entire folder, not just the files within (wished I would have just moved the files now), so am thinking I messed up the folder permissions....I made sure the replaced folder inherited from the parent folder in this case wwwroot, but that did not make a difference.I saved the former folder in a zipped file before I copied the modified project - if I put it back will the permissions return to pre-move permissions?But other users who are authorized to see the app, are met with 401 error message: 401 - Unauthorized: "Access is denied due to invalid credentials.You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.I did not change anything else since the folder it belonged in was named the same.
I suggest using the User and Account information go to each Directory / Folder and set the proper permissions.
I updated code to an existing web application using Visual Studio 2008 and deployed updated files to remote server with IIS7 and Server 2008 installed.
I deployed by copy/past from local machine to remote machines' inetpub\wwwroot\foldername...
Since your learning about security and permissions read IIS Net guide for Users and Account Permissions.
Your doing Developement and will have various errors and messages read this Microsoft Support Article and print a copy of the list for Reference. I read all the articles, not sure any one is helping me solve this.
