Unable to create, modify or upload file to Windows webspace using filemanager or FTP client:
CCP > FileManager > Create a test file
It fails with the error: error: "Unable to create file test.txt"
Issue is caused by missing permission in IIS metabase file C:\Windows\System32\MetaBase.xml:
<IIsFtpVirtualDir Location ="/LM/MSFTPSVC/91/root" AccessFlags="AccessExecute | AccessRead | AccessScript"
AccessWrite is missing in MetaBase file. To grant IIS ability to modify and delete files,
AccessWrite permission should be set.
Add 'AccessWrite' permission to this file and perform IIS restart:
> iisreset /restart
