Unauthorized Access Error

Error Details

File C:\inetpub\wwwroot\dnn621\Portals\_default\\Logs\LogFailures.xml.resources
Error The Windows User Account listed below must have Read/Write Privileges for the website path.

do the following

Instead of using the “NetworkService” account that was used in IIS6/7 , the default account is called “ApplicationPoolIdentity” , so this is the account that needs the usual permissions on the website.  This account is not a “real” user account though. To add permissions for it on your website, you will need to open up Windows explorer and do the following:

  • Right click the website folder and select “Properties”
  • Select the “Security” tab
  • Click the “Edit” and then “Add” button
  • Click the “Locations” button and make sure you select your machine.
  • Enter “IIS AppPool\DefaultAppPool” in the “Enter the object names to select:” text box.
  • Click the “Check Names” button and click “OK”.
  • You can now select the necessary permissions (typically read, write and modify permissions for the folder and all subfolders is the easiest permission to set)

I got fixed:)
