Setting Permissions to Copy Files from One Website to Another in Arvixe

I have a company web site that displays images of products. I created a second site that is for administrators to upload images. In other words, users come to this site (we’ll call it www.trout.com) to see all of the photos of trout fishing, but if you are an administrator you will go to http://administrator.trout.com to upload photos. The problem is that with security in IIS and the way Arvixe sets up the web sites and domains you cannot copy a photo from one site to another even if it is in the same account or on the same server. I will show you how to change this so that you can do this.

Disclaimer: As Arvixe clearly states in the permissions folder in control panel the following

If you read this article from Arvixe it can sound a little confusing but in essence the list that appears after you select the lock are NOT folders, they are USERS or better yet they are ACCOUNTS or as Arvand says they are entities. That is why he responses….

Changing these properties will allow other web sites access to other web sites. From here you will mark the type of permissions those site have. Once this is done you now can use one web site to save files to another web site without setting up virtuals or contacting Arvixe.

Clicking on the ‘read’, ‘write’ for the administrator.trout.com we are saying that the user administrator.trout.com (user) has the right to write to that folder and/or subfolders of the lock (location) that you clicked on. (Read arrow)
