How to add full permissions for IIS application pool user to httpdocs folder?



  1. Create template (for example, C:\1.txt) with entry:

     <Entry AccounType="0" Account="Null" Path="[HTTPD_VHOSTS_D]" SubPath="httpdocs" AceFlags="ThisFolderSubfoldersAndFiles" AccessMask="FullAccess" EntryFlags="0x40" Tag="PoolUser"/>
  2. Apply permissions with HostingSecurity.exe utility:

    "%PLESK_BIN%\HostingSecurity.exe" --update-domain-security --vhost-name=domain.tld --add-template=C:\1.txt

After that IIS application pool user of domain domain.tld will have full permissions for httpdocs.
