    Installing on Windows2003Srvr fails with write errors Link to this post

    After trying the automatic installation option which failed I switched to manual installation on Windows 2003 Server with IIS 6.0 and PHP Version 5.3.1 with FastCGI and ISAPI_Rewrite.

    After extracting the SilverStripe tar.gz to the webfolder I created the web.config as described in the "Windows 2008 Server installation guide" and after that I opened http://localhost/install.php

    Now I have the following 5 error messages which I cannot get corected.
    Who can help me with solving this issues:

    1) Is the .htaccess file writeable?
    The webserver user needs to be able to write to this file:
    C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\.htaccess

    2) Is the mysite/_config.php file writeable?
    The webserver user needs to be able to write to this file:
    C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\mysite\_config.php

    3) Is the assets/ folder writeable?
    The webserver user needs to be able to write to this file:
    C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\assets

    4) Server software
    I can't tell what webserver you are running. Without Apache I can't tell if mod_rewrite is enabled.

    5) mod_rewrite enabled
    I can't tell whether mod_rewrite is running. You may need to configure a rewriting rule yourself.

    I seem to have solved the write access errors by giving the three items write acces to the [IUSR_{servername}] account

    Now I'm stuck with a MySQL error (see http://silverstripe.org/installing-silverstripe/show/273958#post273958)
