When I created a website named
Portal on my IIS 7.5 on the website
security I got this user. What is its purpose?
From what I have read the
ApplicationPool runs under
NetworkService permissions, but I noticed if I gave
Portal user full permissions I could do the saving I wanted in the virtual folder without needing to impersonate any other user (I used to impersonate admin which was a bad idea). So I guess my question is, should I be setting permissions on this
Portal user without knowing how it came about?
It seems that this user did not get created when I created the website, but did so when I published to the website from VS 2010.
