    Installing Umbraco 6.1.6 on GoDaddy Hosting Service

    Dear Umbraco Folk,

    I have followed the instrunctions at to install Umbraco  6.1.6 on the GoDaddy Hosting Service but I am getting the following error:




    Server Error in '/' Application.

    Access to the path 'G:\PleskVhosts\\httpdocs\Views\Partials' is denied.




    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 to the path 'G:\PleskVhosts\\httpdocs\Views\Partials' 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 and IIS 7, and the configured application pool identity on IIS 7.5) 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 access to a file, right-click the file in File 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.

    At home on my WIndows Server 2012 machine I run the following batch file to set permissions to avoid similar problems:


    icacls App_Browsers /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)RX
    icacls App_Code /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)RX
    icacls App_Data /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M
    icacls App_Plugins /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M
    icacls bin /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)WRX
    icacls Config /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M
    icacls css /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M
    icacls Install /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M

    icacls Views /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)WRX
    icacls xslt /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M
    icacls web.config /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":(OI)(CI)M
    icacls web.config /grant "IIS APPPOOL\ArtZen":M


    Do I need to do a similar thing on the GoDaddy site ?

    And if so is there a way to run a script similar to the above on the GoDaddy hosting service ? 

    Altermatively is there a different way to approach this ?

    Thanks for your help

    It seems you cant install Umbraco on Godaddy as Umbraco requires Full Trust permission. As far as I know Godaddy doesnt support Full Trust permission. If you require full trust permission, you need to find other hosting provider. My client use and they do provide full trust.

    Hi Terry, hope you've figured this out. There isn't really a great way to set file permissions through a Plesk panel, you'll just have to do it manually.

    Thanks Amir,

    Yes you are correct, I have confirmed with GoDaddy that there is no way to script the setting of file permissions using the Plesk Panel and there is no way to execute Bach files on the server.

    I wonder if this could be done using an FTP Script.  I installed ncftp because it supports chmod for setting permissions - but when I tried to use it agains my GoDaddy site it failed with a server failure.  I am not sure if there is another approach.

    Hi Terry,

    I don't think using an FTP script isn't going to help because you need to set permissions for the user of the Application Pool or Network Service, not the FTP user.

    Were you able to get things working by changing the permissions for all of the folders in this link via the Plesk panel?

    As far as I know Godaddy doesnt support full trust permission. To install umbraco you need full permission to your folder. If not, you will receive above error message.

    If you want inexpensive and reliable Umbraco hosting in the US, probably want to roll with SoftSys:

    I just talked to GoDaddy support and they do now support Full Trust.

    However they do not support .Net 4.5 on the servers managed by the "Plesk" control plannel.  Fortunately they do support .Net 4.5 on the servers managed by thier proprietry GoDaddy "Web Host" control planel.  So I am migrating from  "Plesk" to the "Web Host" control planel and will test Umbraco 7.0.0 there and will let you know how it goes..

    Yes I have heard good reports of Softsyshosting but since I am already using GoDaddy with persist with that for now to see if it will work and I will then report back on this thread.

    Hi Terry, I'm also installing Umbraco 6.1.6 on GoDaddy and have the same issue. Was all you did to fix this to change the permissions on the each folder using the "Files" page?
