Help -- Installation on IIS6 and WIndows 2003 Server
« on: April 07, 2009, 07:28:23 PM »
Great tool.. .Need help getting it setup to use it.  The free tool on the site that does 500 items works perfect.  We need to use the unlimited tool.  How do I setup on IIS6 and Windows 2003 Server.

I will start out by saying you have a great tool.  However the install documentation for IIS  / WIndows 2003 server needs help.  There is not install directions.    We own our own server.  So we can do things at the windows folder level and in IIS..  Not sure what needs done.  We are running into lots of permission issues.

I am connecting to the server via remote connection.  (I have admin access... Now what?)


Do I cange the Permissions in IIS?    File Properties - File Tab - Read/Write Check Boxes   ?
Do I change the permissions at the Folder Level in Windows - Sharing and Security... Security Tab   ?
   If I do permissions at the folder level which ones?   Administrator, Creator Owner, IIS_WPG, Internet Guest Account, System   (Which ones?)

Files I need to chage Permission of:
* sitemap.xml   Read, Write
* ror.xml         Read, Write
* config.inc.php    Read, Write
* DataFolder  Read/Execute, Read, Write

What is the whole numeric value thing?  777, 666   (Does this apply in IIS6)

Would love some help setting this up properly   
FYI, I already have PHP installed, tested and know that it works.

I'm having the same problem. I've manually made all the required permission changes to all of the various files and directories in Windows.

However when I try to update the configuration, none of the changes are being saved.

I agree with dmcbrier above that the documentation for Apache is great. But the WIndows explanation is a bit of a cop out!

i.e. "Note: in case of Windows/IIS servers it is not allowed to set permissions via FTP
and you will have to do that using your Hosting Control Panel."

Not very illuminating!!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You should allow "Full Access" for "Internet Guest Account".

I do not have Internet Guest Account on our Server. I've tried setting Everyone to Full Access for the relevant directories and files, without success.

Any ideas would be appreciated...

Just installed this software onto our Windows 2003 64bit server running IIS6....

Need to confirm the permission that need to be set on the following folders and files:

mydomain.co.uk/generator folder
mydomain.co.uk/ror.xml file
mydomain.co.uk/sitemap.xml file
mydomain.co.uk/generator/data folder

I think that I've done it right, but I keep getting..

HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.

When I goto mydomain.co.uk/generator/index.php

Thanks..

Hello,

permissions for mydomain.co.uk/generator/ folder should be kept unchanged, otherwise it's correct.

Hello Administrator

I may not have been clear enough....

Within IIS, if I right-click the folder/file should I be looking at the Internet Guest Account only?  If so, what should the permissions be set to?

Having trouble understanding why I keep getting HTTP Error 404 - File or directory not found.

Thanks...

You must enable index.php as a default document. that is probably why you are getting the 404 error.

Also I have run this script for a long time on IIS6. you just give modify permissions to the appropriate files/folders on the server. the user would be Internet Guest Account or username_web depending on how your configured.

worse comes to worse set modify for everyone.

I also found that you need to put the websites IP in the advanced configuration.

How do you make the index.php the default?

I have the following accounts:
Administrators
asp.net machine accnt
creator owner
custom - website access
network service -- have given this account full control on rar, sitemap, and /data
system
users

Get a 404 not found error.
I created a test.html page in the generator folder and can hit that.
What am I doing wrong?

Hello,

you can open test.html and not index.php then it's possible that your server doesn't support PHP, please check that with your host.
