Access to the path is denied error is shown when access .aspx file

Applicable to:

  • Plesk 11.x for Windows
  • Plesk 12.0 for Windows
  • Plesk 12.5 for Windows

Symptoms

When attempt to access http://example.com/testfolder/test.aspx the following error is displayed:

Access to the path \\inetpub\\vhosts\\example.com\\httpdocs\    estfolder is denied

Not Plesk Reconfigurator nor repair.exe utilities do not resolve the issue.

Cause

Required system user and/or permissions are not configured properly for the directory %plesk_vhosts%\\example.com\\httpdocs\ estfolder in Plesk.

Resolution

  1. Use Process Monitor to find the user, who has no access to the directory. The username identity also can be found in IIS > Application Pools > example.com .

  2. Open Plesk > Home > Subscriptions> example.com > Websites & Domains > example.com > Virtual Directory > \ estfolder > Directory Access Permissions and check if this user was not granted with access permission. To fix the issue add the user and set required permission on testfolder .
