    If I'm running the site using an app pool with a trusted user account what are the minimum windows directory permissions and database permissions required? I believe for the database db owner is required. For directory permissions do they need fullcontrol on the Website folder? Is there any other directory that they need access to?

    Hi Christopher,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    Generally, db_owner is required. As for the directory permissions you could set them in accordance with your needs. It is not necessary the user to have full control over all folders, you can specify separate folders where the user has only read permissions. You need to grant write permissions to the App_Data folder, because there are the database and sitefinity.log.

    Hope this helps.
