This question already has an answer here:
I've installed a wordpress site in a dedicated server with Windows 2008 server running IIS7 but I'm a little confused on what's the most secure way to set the appropriate file settings.
The thing is the automatic update and automatic plugin installation only works if I give Full Control permission to the Everyone user in the root folder where wordpress is installed.
I'm not sure how dangerous this setting is, but I can imagine it's not the best scenario. That being said, what's the user I should use in the application pool used by this site, so that I can set a more restrictive security permission in the folders used by wordpress?
