Providing write permission to a file in Plesk

Today I uploaded a new module to one of my sites hosted with a third party hosting provider( This module reads from and writes to an XML file but once I uploaded the code to the server, I found that the application was not able to write to the XML file. The reason, as I guessed was .NET Security Laughing. By default, all files are assigned read only permission for the ASP.NET worker process. So we need to give write permission on the XML file to the ASP.NET worker process.

2gbhosting uses Plesk(version 8.4.0) and I am describing here the steps required in this scenario to fix this issue in Plesk.


1. Login to Plesk.-> File Manager -> Browse to the File -> Click on the Lock icon on the right side of the file.

2. You will reach "Setting up Access permissions" page .

3. Click on "Plesk IIS WP User (IWAM_plesk(default))" user.

4. On the right side, check in allow column against Write permission. 

5. Click on OK and you are done. 

Happy coding and hosting!!!

Are you still hosting your web hosting with I too have an account with them but nowadays their services are very poor. I am facing a lot of issues with their servers. On above all, few of their support members seems to be the biggest fool on earth.

Are you really enjoying their services ?

Shoes help make the outfit, within my opinion. There’s nothing worse in comparison with seeing a guy within a suit, only to be wearing chucks. As well as nothing worse than a lady wearing a dress with sneakers. Lol, just what are these individuals thinking?

Avatar is really a ‘Have to see’ movie, innovative, and extraordinary picture . I think it shall be regarded by nearly all cinema goers as another landmark in the history of the art. The level of realism accomplished is extraordinary, and even though the motion picture is comparatively long in real time, it retains it’s excitement and retains the viewer’s interest to the ending. Actions are great, but this may not be the kind of motion picture that dwells on large movie star worth for the stars, although Sigorney Weaver really does shine and delivers an extremely effective performance, as do the rest from the cast. But as there is certainly much leisure and motion value on display screen the human being element does not dominate within the typical way.

Hrmm that was weird, my comment got eaten. Anyway I wanted to say that it’s wonderful to be aware that someone else at the same time mentioned this as I had trouble finding the exact same info elsewhere. That was the first spot that told me the answer. Thanks.

His hair is dark as the hyacinth-blossom, and his lips are red as the rose of his desire; but passion has made his lace like pale Ivory, and sorrow has set her seal upon his brow’ Bronze-limbed and well-knit, like a statue wrought by a Grecian, he stood on the sand with his back to the moon, and out of the foam came white arms that beckoned to him, and out of the waves rose dim forms that did him homage Then the Spring came, and all over the country there were little blossoms and little birds Therefore is it the god, and we worship it He would not have given his rose for all the pearls on the canopy, nor one white petal of his rose for the throne itself What he wanted was to see the Infanta before she went down to the pavilion, and to ask her to come away with him when he had finished his dance Flour is one thing

I’ll share this review to three of my blogs. I’ll think everyone else will enjoy this

Interesting take on this publication in Providing write permission to a file in Plesk. I for one have viewed many turns on this and can oftentimes spot the holes in the arguement or process even so, on this reading I am hard-pressed. Say it as you see it – that is the genuine approach.

Great post. I merely came across your site and wished to say that I have genuinely loved reading your blog posts. Any ways I shall be subscribing to your feed and I hope you post again soon.
