Correct folder and files permssions on Windows server / IIS? (1 post)

    what is the correct security settings on folders and files in wordpress installation when using Microsoft Windows 2003 server and IIS?

    There is not much written on the net and I tried some of the suggestions but they do not seem to work properly.

    I tested to run the installation with Read & Execute, List Folder Contents, Read permissions assigned to IUSR, IIS_IUSRS, NETWORK SERVICE, but then the installation whines about that it cannot find the WP-config.php file.

    However if I set FULL permissions to IUSR and NETWORK SERVICE it all works fine - but that's a dangerous setting..

    Does anyone know what the correct settings should be?
