Uploading images to wordpress running on IIS 7 Win 2008 results in bad permissions
|Reported by:||cgoudie||Owned by:|
I have a clean install of 2008 server (not r2). I used the web platform installer to install wordpress into wwwroot.
However, when I add an image to a post, attach a PDF, or whatnot, the security permissions on the file in the upload directory are very strange. They aren't sufficient for iis to read those files (using the default application pool).
Additionally, the permissions on those files are substantially different than the permissions those files are supposed to inherit from the parent uploads folder. They are missing most of the groups, the IIS_IUSRS group gets "special permissions" instead of read or what it was previously set to.
I also tried adding NETWORK SERVICE to the upload folder permissions, and had it propagate down to the children, and that permission is also stripped from uploaded files.
Also of note, the subfolders for year and month do get the correct permissions.
Files created through plugin downloads or editing through wordpress do not have this problem.
Any attempt in windows to edit the permissions on those files immediately update the files with the proper permissions. Also, if I create a file in that directory from windows, it obtains the permissions from the parent.
This is a fairly direct install of the OS, wordpress through the web platform installer. I've added some plugins and I'm using the Atahuapla theme, but I dont suspect anything I'm doing would be affecting the permissions on these files.
There isn't anything of interest in my php error log after finishing an upload and attempting to display it.
Thanks for the help!
