How do I change folder permissions on the Windows server?

Users may want to change folder permissions to allow their applications for read/write access.  This can be accomplished within the Windows Hosting Control panel.

You may access your Hosting Service Control Panel by:
  • Logging into http://manage.inet7.com
  • Click Services
  • Click on "Active" of any particular service
  • Scroll down to "Open Control Panel"

Once you are in the control panel, there are many features and a fantastic Help Menu at the top which includes access to Video Tutorials for commonly performed tasks.

To Change folder or file permissionns:

  • Click "Files" and navigate to the folder or file that needs updating.  
  • Hover your mouse over near the left-hands side of the "Modified" time stamp, you will see a tiny arror display.  Click this to show options including "change permissions":

  • By default, the folder you are in will inherit the permissions of it's parent folder.  Since you are customizing this folder, you want to "uncheck" the box next to "Allow inheritable permissions...."
  • Next, check the box to "replace permission entries on all child objects"
  • For Most application-based file changes/uploads, the application will use the IIS Anonymous User, Hightlight this user, then select the permissions you would like this user to have.
  • Click "ok".
