I was deploying a site today and it seemed I needed to grant read/write permissions to the site directories to system account "network service". Does that mean any other site running on this webhost (who also presumably is running as network service) could also access these files?
I tried assigning permissions to pre-created accounts created that match my domain name. That doesn't seem to be sufficient to run the site though. I receive access-denied messages unless I also grant permission to "network service".
note it turns it out was in error, I do not need to grant permissions to network service for my site to work.
note The webhosting company is running IIS on Windows.
