Web Deploy: Unauthorized or Permission Denied

If you are getting permission-related errors when attempting to publish via Web Deploy, it may be because the ACL’s you have set in your development environment are incompatible with Arvixe’s ACL configuration. Information on how a Web Deploy publishing file is created/configured can be found here.

Once you have fully configured your Web Deploy.pubxml, it may be necessary open the file in a text editor (such as Notepad) and add the following line underneath the first opening <PropertyGroup> tag:


The above line, if nested inside the first <PropertyGroup> tag set, ensures that Arvixe’s ACL configuration will not be contested, and thus the permission error will likely be averted entirely. If it is not, you will need to contact Arvixe support so that the matter can be investigated more thoroughly.
