asp_data security issue

Oct 26, 2007 at 1:23 PM
Just wanted to give a heads-up that in addition to setting permissions for the ASP.NET machine account on the asp_data folder, just make sure that the folder is NOT READ-ONLY. Took me several minutes to figure this out (Yes i know, should have been the first place i looked but i'm sure others will make the same mistake). The files I downloaded were read-only... common for when copying from cd or dvd but not when downloading.

I think they mention that the folder is read only in the Wiki or the initial blog page you see when you first setup a blog from scratch. I too spent a few mintues trying to figure out why my blog wouldn't let me create posts or users when I first started out.
