An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access to the path 'C:\Publish\MULTIL\9_bijvhz.tmp' is denied.

Source File: C:\Publish\MULTIL\EPiServerFramework.config

Please advice on this issue.


Thanks and regards,

IIS user (user running app pool) need create/write acces rights to the root of the website (on disk).

Try this from the command prompt(cmd.exe)

icacls C:\Publish\MULTIL /grant:r "IIS APPPOOL\mywebsitepool":(OI)(CI)(RX)


Substitute "mywebsitepool" with the name of your application pool.  Once you'd done this you'll see the application pool user show up on your security settings for the folder (that you view by right clicking on the folder and clicking the security tab).

How about transfering a just created EPiServer project to web server in order to make it go live?

How should I modify the web.config file after I upload the whole project folder to the web server via FTP?

Any idea?
