Access to path xxx denied when uploading a file using c#

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :.NET Framework
 
Hi I have a file upload app written in c#. The app runs on IIS on a Windows 2003 Server OS. I want the app to upload the file onto the server (The app and the server are on the same machine). This code has been working fine for a long time running on Windows Server 2000, and Windows XP Professional. Now when I moved onto Windows Server 2003, it stopped working. I have given ASPNET account full access to the folder on the server, and it still gives this error. Is this a bug in 2003, and can anybody assist me? Thanks Shane

Uploading a file to a document library produces access denied error, but only on first try.

  
Hi I have a task which uses a custom form which is part of a custom workflow.  The form incorporates an asp fileUpload control to allow a user to browse for a local file which they can then select and it will be upload a file to a folder in a document library.  The first time this action is performed the folder in the document library will not exist so the code creates a folder and then uploads the file to it. The problem I have is, the first time users try and upload a file the directory is created in the document library as expected, but then the user gets redirected to the standard SharePoint Access Denied page.  If the user goes back to the task list, then loads the task web page again, selects the same file and hits upload, then the file is uploaded fine. All subsequent file uploads work fine after that for all users. Users have Contribute permissions on the document library. The code to do the upload is as follows.  The task has a "CR Number" associated with it, which the directory in the doc library should be called.  It uploads the file to a stream.  Then gets the url of the web and works out the file url and uploads it.  The creation and checking of the folder in the doc library happens in the getDirUrl method. /// <summary> /// Processes an uploaded file. /// </summary> /// <param name="

Migrated from Windows 2000 ASP.NET 1.1 to Windows 2003, ASP.NET 2.0 and had this error. All the forums/MSDN/Blogs says to give Read/Write Access to C:\Windows\Temp folder. Why should we give Full Access to some folder in Production server?? In windows 2000, ASP.NET 2.0 development machine, no files are created when we run crystal reports from aspx pages. Then why in Windows 2003 servers, we need to give rights to temp folder?? It is a simple code

crReportDocument.Load(Server.MapPath("Project.rpt"));

And the code is not storing anything on the disk. Then why should it store the GUID.rpt file in Temp file in Windows 2003 server?? Any alternative is there not to store anything on the disk when Crystal Reports are opened in aspx page??

 


Asp.Net upload file access denied

  

Hi,

I have the problem below, if anyone can help me, appreciate it.

Server Error in '/' Application.


Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\EnewsAttFiles\employ-e-header2.jpg' is denied.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'c:\Inetpub\EnewsAttFiles\employ-e-header2.jpg' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Hig

Error reading .config file in Windows Forms app - Access is denied

  
I'm attempting to read a connection string from a .config file in a Windows Forms app on a test laptop. A previous version of the application worked just fine, but now I get a configuration exception thrown - "Configuration system failed to initialize." The inner exception message says - "An error occurred loading a configuration file: Access is denied". The user I'm logged in as is in the Administrators group and there's no obvious problems with the config file. The same config file works just fine on my dev machine so it's not an issue with ordering of the XML. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.If a response to your question is helpful or answers it please mark it as such!

IIS 7 & W2K8 - Access to path \\remotewinXP\folder\ is denied. No error on IIS 6 & W2K3 hosting. Any

  

Hi,

Appreciate if someone could point to the right answer on how to overcome this error. By clicking the Button3, the ExportedFilePDF.pdf should be copied to the \\presario remote machine. So far, no security issue on the same configuration in IIS6 + W2K3.

  Protected Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button3.Click
        Try
            File.Copy("C:\BackOffice\Export\ExportedFilePDF.pdf", "\\presario\FaxServer\Outbox\ExportedFilePDF.pdf", True)
        Catch ex As Exception
            Response.Write("Error copying file | " & ex.ToString)
        End Try

    End Sub

 The browser will generate this error message when the Button3 is clicked.

Access to path denied aspnet account - windows 7

  

I have seen this error many times in past and what all I used to do was to add aspnet account to the directory and provide it with read and write access.  But this time I am trying to run an application in Windows 7(64 bits) - I had to manually enable the IIS from windows feature in Control Panel.

But I dont see any aspnet account in 'security' tab of any of the directories (in its properties). I even ran aspnet_regiis -i in v2.0.50727 and v4.030319 directories.   How do I get aspnet user account to show up in any folder? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

'Access to the path is denied" when more than one app pool access IBM DB2 Driver

  

I am experiencing a strange situation where when one application (running in it's own app pool) uses the  IBM.Data.DB2.iSeries .net driver, any onther app pool that attempts to access the same resource gets an 'access to the path is denied' message.  If I recycle the app pool that initially 'worked' and then access using another app pool, the one that worked before does not and the one that didn't does.

this is the line of code referenced in the error:

Dim connection as iDB2Connection = new iDB2Connection(ConfigurationManager.COnnectionStrings("theConnectionStringname").ConnectionString())

 

it fails on this line in either app in the app pool that fails.

Error: 5123 CREATE FILE encountered operating system error 5A(Access denied.)

  

 

 

 HI ,

 

 This is a problem I encountered when I had to detach a database file (type .mdf):

 

 1) I went to the MS SQL Management Server Studi and detached my database file successfully from a connection called Workhorse.

 

2) I needed to place the .mdf database file into a zip file in order to put it on a remote server. I did this using Shared Portal.  This was also successful

 

3) However when I tried reattaching the database file, I got this error:

CREATE FILE encountered operating system error 5A(Access denied.) while attempting to open or create the physical file "C\Program Files\MSSQL Server\MSSQL\Data\<databasename>.mdf'

 

Q) The database file and log file (ldf) exist in the correct directory so I don't know what happened. Can any one help?

 

 Thanks much

Using , want to restrict access to file .wmv

  

Hi all,  I want to secure a particular set of files in a folder by role type.  I have the following entry (See below)...I notice this doesn't work (I.e., it doesn't secure the file by Role Type..anyone can access the file).  I've read that I need to map the .WMV extension to the ASp.Net DLL.  Can somebody give me some details on how to do that?  (I'm a newbie).

 

Thanks in advance.

 

<location path="media/mymediafile.wmv">
    <system.web>
      <authorization>
        <allow roles="MediaRole" />
        <deny users="*" />
      </authorization>

Could not load file or assembly or one of its dependencies. Access is denied.

  
I cannot figure out how to get past this error.  I have

1) Given the user "everyone" access to the entire directory that this dll is contained in
2) Deleted the dll and rebuilt the project
3) Deleted the Temporary ASP.NET files in the Windows Directory
4) Restarted IIS
5) Tried to change to a different user in IIS security including trying ASPNET.  we are not using windows authentication.
6) Even copied that dll from other machines

Here's the error.  I have no clue at this point if it's code missing inside it or something else wrong with it or my setup.  Other people on my team are using this dll ok.
