I am currently on a shared hosting plan with iis 7.0

I have an asp.net mvc application in the wwwroot of my hosting. Now I made a virtual directory to store my webservice in(I don't want to have to host this on a sub domain and pay extra)

However when I put my web service code in my virtual directory and try to run it I get this

Error Summary

I don't know what the probelm is nor how to fix it.

Accepted Answer

You should check the permission of the user account of the apppool. Or you can check the security property of the folder(C:\HostingSpaces\int\Site.com\wwwroot). Ensure the account of the apppool of IIS can read the folder at least.
