Overview

This article describes how to change permissions on files and/or folders in Plesk Windows. You may need to do this if you have migrated your website to Conetix or your web application needs to write to a file or folder it does not have access to.

Warning

While you can manually set the permissions via Windows, these changes may be overridden when you request Plesk to reset permissions. If the changes are set via Plesk, they will therefore remain if you ever need to migrate or upgrade the subscription.

Instructions

  1. Login to Plesk via your Conetix Control Panel or directly to your VPS directly.
  2. Open the File Manager for the domain you’re working on:
    setting windows folder / file permissions in plesk
  3. In the file manager, click on the hamburger menu for the file or folder you’re changing and then click Change Permissions:
    setting windows folder / file permissions in plesk
  4. Click on the appropriate User from left
    e.g. (IWPG_yourpleskuser)
    setting windows folder / file permissions in plesk
  5. Adjust the permissions as required on the right:
    setting windows folder / file permissions in plesk
  6. When your changes are made click Save:
     setting windows folder / file permissions in plesk
  7. Once saved reload site to confirm your site or application is now working as expected.
