Allowing EPiServer to save to web.config

March 13, 2007

Simple problem, simple solution. But I thought I’d share it anyway.

Today when I tried to enable globalization in the admin mode at the production server, I ran into a tiny wall. EPiServer told me that
Access to the path "C:\Inetpub\EPiServer\web.config" is denied.

This lead to some funny behaviour, since the globalization was only enabled for one cache period and then it got disabled again. Very natural, since the setting wasn’t actually saved. What to do?

Just go to the web.config file in explorer, and give the user IIS_WPG rights to write to that file. Now you can save the settings like there’s no tomorrow!
