"Access is denied." Server Error occurs when I try to upload anykind of files to the server.

I don't have any problems with another test server that i have setup but this server which has a default IIS setup gives me trouble. Please help.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET write access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

Have you tried the advice in error message, and
assigned ASPNET write permissions on your upload folder? To do so,
right click on the folder, find the user named ASPNET, and check the
'allow' box to give the account write access.

Yes I did. That was the first thing I did. When that failed, I thought it may be an IIS configuration differences because it works in one and doesn't on the other while they have the same codes and OS w/patches. But once agian, i maybe wrong. Anyhow, i'm hoping any one of you may have experienced something like this before? Please help.

I believe that the ASPNET user has to have Modify permission for that.

Where exactly is the folder? Is it somewhere other than Inetpub\wwwroot?

Yes. But it's configured as a virtual directory under the default website in IIS admin.

I don't think that matters. I suspect that you're doing some type of file manipulation by the exception, and I don't think that being a virtual would mean anything under that circumstance. The ASPNET machine user which ASP.NET runs under, necessarily has very limited security permissions, since you would definitely not want some hacker getting unlimited access around your server.
