Static Content role is installed on the server, the StaticFileModule is installed, and the StaticFile handler is mapped to the StaticFileModule.
I created a test page with a sample image, but when I browse to it, I get "401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials." I've used IIS7 some in the past, but I understand permissions have changed for IIS8 (using the AppPoolIdentity instead of Network Services) so I don't if the problem is permissions or if I'm missing something else.
I created a new site with the same
index.html and sample image and got the same 401 error. I've tried Google but there doesn't seem to be as much discussion on IIS8 on the net as yet.
Edit: Being an internal development server, as a test we added Everyone with Modify permissions to the DNN site, and now it works, so looks like most definitely a permissions issue. Perusing the DNN forums suggests setting AppPoolIdentity\AppPoolName to Modify, but that hasn't worked. I haven't been able to find much else, so my question now is what permissions for what user account do I need to make IIS8 and DNN play nice together?
