Unable to Upload Avatars
« on: January 17, 2017, 12:31:44 PM »
The attachments upload directory is not writable. Your attachment or avatar cannot be saved.

This is SMF running in IIS on Windows.
I have access to the server, but do not know what to change to fix this.

I've tried setting up FTP server and applying permisisons the way you would with Linux, but it errors that CHMOD : 504 Command not implemented.

Try adding 'IIS_IUSRS' to the folder in question and give it write permissions, you might need to restart IIS.

Thank you, this resolved the issue
(and i do believe the restarting of the site and/or the app pools were required. i restarted both and thats when the permissions took effect).
