    I created a new website project with the sitefinity project manager and corresponding database. I then moved the files from my local machine to a development server to begin customizing the actual site through development with visual studio.

    One issue we are running into, is our servers are not setup with the proper directory permissions to allow sitefinity to write to the proper directory. 

    What I need to know is what permissions do we need to set on what particular directories on the server?

    Hello Andrew Booth,

    Sitefinity requires that you should grant read and write permissions for Network Service/ ASP.NET account over App_Data and Sitefinity/ServiceAssemblies folders. ServiceAssemblies is used by Newsletters module to generate a dll file when you request the module for the first time or in case you are making changes to the SMTP settings through the module. For all other folders Network Service/ ASP.NET account should have read permissions.

    Kind regards,

    Ivan,

    We added read and write to network service on App_Data and the Sitefinity/ServiceAssemblies folders, but when I try to upload a control it is still giving the Access to path "xxxx" is denied.

    Any ideas?

    Andrew

    Hello Andrew Booth,

    When you are uploading controls there is a new folder created called UserControls. Please grant read write permissions to this folder as well. Let me know if there is anything else I can help with.

    All the best,
