    Folder permissions


    Which folder permissions are required when installing Umbraco Forms (latest version)?

    Our permissions on pre-prod and production servers are locked down to the minimum Umbraco needs to run, so I've had to give my IIS user modify access to the /Umbraco/config/Lang/en.xml file, and it looks like the installer wants to write a licence file to the bin folder. Are there any other files/folders which the installer needs to update?

    Hi James

    There are probably some folders you have missed.

    See the following article:


    Hopefully, this should sort the issues you are having.

    Thanks Craig. I was more looking for which files are created/updated when Forms first runs after installing the package.

    I think I was caught out by not committing the licence file the installer creates (I'm sure older versions of Forms/Contour didn't create this) when I deployed to a pre-prod environment. At least I'll know to watch out for this next time.
