System.IO.IOException when I index

David Pearson asked on August 7, 2015 19:32

I am getting a event listed below. Is this a security issue on the dev IIS server where I need to grant permissions to the service account for the website?

Thanks David

Yes, you might need to check write permissions on the file system for app pool account you're running your site under.

The other known reason might be running web farm with shared source code, which seem to be default installation within the company. Please let me know if this is the case.
