When a new blog is created, Telligent Community tries to write a file to your Web site so that the Web server allows the http://<sitename>/blogs/BLOG-NAME/ links and typical http://<sitename>/blogs/BLOG-NAME/default.aspx file to work.
However, a permission problem may occur with conflicting security settings for the Telligent Community application pool. To fix the problem, give the Telligent Community application pool write permission to the /blogs/ directory of your Web site:
- In IIS, navigate to your blog in the /blogs/ directory, then right-click it.
- Select Edit permissions from the shortcut menu, then select the Security tab.
- Click the ASP.NET or Network Service user to highlight the user, then select the Write check box in the permissions Allow column.
- Click OK.
If you are reluctant to give write permissions to the /blogs/ directory, create the default page manually:
- Create a folder with the same name as the application key of the blog you created.
- Inside that folder, create a blank file named default.aspx. This causes IIS to hand the request to ASP.NET, which gives the URL rewriting in Telligent Community the time to take effect.
