Setting write permission to App_Data for a Godaddy hosted site


The “App_Data” is the folder where most of your site user data’s fall into. Hence in case of blogs or other site’s that permits user to upload images/videos/files, it would be essential to give write permissions to the “App_Data” folder.

Scenario:

  • You have a godaddy account.
  • You would like to give write permission to “App_Data” folder of the hosted site.

Solution:

  • Go to your hosted site control panel.
  • Select File Manager
  • Select the folder “App_Data” and set the file permissions.

Go through the screenshots below, they are self explanatory.

Beside the “eye” symbol, you will be able to find a “pen” symbol, indication a read and write permission on the “App_Data” folder.

Hope this post was useful!

  6. The Godaddy file manager no longer looks like this. They completely changed it and the permissions options are few.

  8. Heya! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I
    ended up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?

  11. Okay, on the GoDaddy permissions using the File Manager and on a Windows server I can only set Read and Write. I want to set the wp-content to 766 and then 755 after I upload some files. Why isn’t there an execute option?

    You need to select appropriate users before you give write permissions.
    In this window you may need to enable write permissions for these users:
    IIS User (IUSR_*****), IIS WP User, Domain User

  13. Just for reference, inorder to enable the write permissions, you need to first uncheck the “inherit” option. Now the read and write options will get enabled. You can go ahead and check the read and write checkboxes.

    The folders will no longer inherit the permissions from the parent. But that is normal and exactly what we need.

  15. hi,

    I am configuring a .Net Site in goDaddy. As such i too would need Write permissions on the App_Data folder.

    But, when i check the permissions section, the read checkbox( already checked) and write checkbox are disabled !

    Could you let me know why is this so? Is there any other configuration settings we ought to do?
