    I created a page and I'm trying to set it as the Home Page and I'm getting the following error:

    Access to the path 'C:\inetpub\wwwroot\MyWebSite\App_Data\Sitefinity\Configuration\PagesConfig.config' is denied.

    Any idea on what would be causing this? I tried changing the permissions on this file for the IISUser, giving it Modify permissions which didn't work. I also tried running my browser application as Administrator which didn't work.

    Can you tell me what I need to change to prevent this error from occurring? Thanks.

    Hello Philip Senechal,

    The error says that that ASP.NET Worker process account does not have read/write permissions over PagesConfig.config file and it cannot be modified. This is an ASP.NET error.

    I figured it out...since my 3.7 sites were running under the Classic .NET AppPool in Classic mode, I didn't check the identity of the DefaultAppPool which is running in Pipeline mode. The DefaultAppPool was still set to use identity ApplicationPoolIdentity. I changed this to LocalSystem and it works now without errors.
