WordPress IIS7 IUSR File Permissions on Windows 2003

April 6, 2011 at 12:59 am 1 comment


Been having some issues with WordPress on IIS7 windows 2003 for a while now and think I finally got it solved, thought I’d post the info here for others to see, as I had a hard time finding this info myself anywhere else, not even the WordPress website.

This is what I found after a lot of playing around, if you see any issues with this or have any feedback please let me know below.

On the wp-content folder I applied the following permissions.

C:\inetpub\wwwroot\wordpress\wp-content
– IUSR with following permissions

  • Traverse folder / execute file
  • List folder / read data
  • Read attributes
  • Read extended attributes
  • Create files / write data
  • Create folders / append data
  • Write attributes
  • Write extended attributes
  • Delete subfolders and files
  • Delete
  • Read permissions

I also have the following groups and users on there

  • IIS_IUSRS
  • Trustedinstaller
  • SYSTEM
  • Administrators
  • Users
  • CREATOR OWNER

Here are the steps I followed

  • Right click wp-content
  • Properties
  • Security tab
  • Advanced button
  • Change permissions button
  • Add button
  • Advanced button
  • Find now button
  • Locate IUSR and double click
  • OK button
  • Check box Allow Full control
  • Uncheck the boxes; Full control, Take ownership, Change permissions
  • Click OK button
  • Check box “Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object”
  • Click OK button
  • Click Yes when asked if you want to continue
  • Click OK button
  • Click OK button

I’m not making anything in the root writable, like wp-config etc. I change that manually or as a one off.
