Can not seem to find any help on this issue. I have installed piwik from scratch onto an internal windows server 2008 R2 environment.
I am getting the following error message:
Error in Piwik: Piwik couldn't write to some directories (running as user 'iis apppool\piwik'). Try to Execute the following commands on your server, to allow Write access on these directories: cacls C:\inetpub\piwik\tmp /t /g piwik:f cacls C:\inetpub\piwik/tmp/assets/ /t /g piwik:f cacls C:\inetpub\piwik/tmp/cache/ /t /g piwik:f cacls C:\inetpub\piwik/tmp/logs/ /t /g piwik:f cacls C:\inetpub\piwik/tmp/tcpdf/ /t /g piwik:f cacls C:\inetpub\piwik/tmp/templates_c/ /t /g piwik:f If this doesn't work, you can try to create the directories with your FTP software, and set the CHMOD to 0755 (or 0777 if 0755 is not enough). To do so with your FTP software, right click on the directories then click permissions. After applying the modifications, you can refresh the page. If you need more help, try Piwik.org.
I have tried the commands listed - and those are met with a permission denied as well.
I have tried giving full permission access to the IUSR (no luck)
any clue what is going on here? I am stuck at step 1! :\
