Version 8.00.02

Logged in as host


try to delete a portal, I get the error:


Error: is currently unavailable. DotNetNuke.Services.Exceptions.ModuleLoadException: Access to 'C:\Inetpub\vhosts\\httpdocs' denied. ---> System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to 'C:\Inetpub\vhosts\\httpdocs' denied. ---> System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Access is denied --- End of inner exception stack trace --- at SchwabenCode.QuickIO.Internal.InternalQuickIOCommon.NativeExceptionMapping(String path, Int32 errorCode) at SchwabenCode.QuickIO.Internal.InternalQuickIO.GetFindDataFromPath(QuickIOPathInfo pathInfo) at DotNetNuke.Common.Utilities.FileSystemUtils.DeleteFilesRecursive(String strRoot, String filter) at DotNetNuke.Entities.Portals.PortalController.DeletePortal(PortalInfo portal, String serverPath) at DesktopModules.Admin.Portals.SiteSettings.DeletePortal(Object sender, EventArgs e) --- End of inner exception stack trace ---


(where is my primary domain name)


The only search result I found was in 2015 and seems to be SQL errors based on rules, so looks like it is different - is this a function of the setup (managed by, who I find to be excellent)

most likely, the process has not been granted delete permissions for files (in Windows file system for content of the website folder).
