Javascript directory forbidden


Hi All,


I'm having some toruble with EPiServer 5. When I load the admin panel nothing works because the required javascript has not been downloaded. Using firebug I found out that this has to do with permissions, as I am getting a 403 response.

How do I set up these permissions? I would have thought that this shuld work out of the box, here is my web.config for the util directory (Util/javascript... is the javascript dir)


<location path="util">
                    <add tagPrefix="EPiServerUI" namespace="EPiServer.UI.WebControls" assembly="EPiServer.UI"/>
                    <add tagPrefix="EPiServerScript" namespace="EPiServer.ClientScript.WebControls" assembly="EPiServer"/>
            <globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8"/>
        <allow roles="WebEditors, WebAdmins, Administrators"/>
        <deny users="*"/>


Thanks for any help on this.

Do you have your VPP configuration set up correctly?

Thanks for your response. I just got this sorted, I needed to add a web.config  file with read/exe permissions to the /Util/javascript directory.. fixed my problem.
