Shared Hosting (GoDippy) Refuses Write Permission to Web.Confg - W

Discussion in 'ASP .Net Security' started by Trebor Trebor, Aug 29, 2006.

  1. GoDaddy (AKA: GoDippy, GoDead-E, GoDitty, NoDaddy, etc....)

    provides shared hosting in Meidum Trust on a windows platform. I selected
    them to test out some ASP code with various popular hosting providers. I
    soon realized that the web.config file that I placed in the virtual root
    folder on GoDaddy is restricted from being modified.

    GoDaddy only allows you to modify permissions on folders in your virtual
    directory and not files in your virtual directory. The web.config file must
    sit in the root of the virtual directory.

    After 21.3 hours of ongoing attempts to get GoDaddy to apply write
    permissions on the web.config file in "my viritual folder" I now turn to any
    alternative means.

    Is there a way to set permissions on "my" web.config file that sits in "my"
    virtual directory?

    TIA
