    Problem creating a virtual directory in Umbraco


    I've got an Umbraco website (version 4.7) running fine on my server.

    I've created a virtual directory in this website (IIS 7) which contains PDF, MP3, etc... (no aspx page). Original directory is 'C:\LR_FILES'.

    I've changed my web.config as specified here:

    Now, trying to access files in this directory, I get this error:
    An error occurred loading a configuration file: Failed to start monitoring changes to 'C:\LR_FILES' because access is denied.

    I've tried to give access to "everyone" for this folder, but the error is still there.

    Any help, please ?

    If you have followed the post instructions then the only explanation is that the user account associated to your website's app pool has insufficient privileges to access that directory. Check your permission settings to be sure it is allowed.

    Hello again,

    Was that a permission issue atfert all? if so you can mark the topic as resolved.
