I have a very weird behavior from Coldfusion 8 and IIS 7.
On the IIS, a site is declared and one of the subsirectories is a virtual directory poiting to a local filesystem. Everything is working except for a subdirectory. All of the sudden, I get an error 403 Access Denied as soon as I try to access a subfolder.
I place a simple CFM page to make my tests:
<html> <head> </head> <body> <cfoutput>Test</cfoutput> </body> </html>
This request works:
While this one triggers a 403:
I checked the following and could not find any difference:
- NTFS rights -> same on both directories. The user running the ColdFusion service has 'Full Control'
- IIS Authentication -> same on both folders
- Authorization Rules -> same on both folders
- Handler Mappings -> same on both folders
I turned on the Failed Request Tracing and added a rule to capture the event. It appears that the wildcard Coldfusion ISAPI filter is actually throwing the exception:
HttpReason Access denied.
EXECUTE_REQUEST_HANDLER ErrorCode The operation completed successfully. (0x0)
Do anyone have a clue on how to solve this?
