View Full Version : Dreamweaver overriding server file permissions

05-27-2009, 02:28 PM
Hi all,

I currently use Dreamweaver CS4, and for some reason sometimes when checking out a file, checking it back in changes the permissions that that file originally had on the server.
Each folder on our server has a set of permissions tied to logins and the files in each folder inherit their permissions from there. However, sometimes dreamweaver decides to completely change the set of permissions that a file has on the server and disabling the inheritance of permissions entirely on said file.

The oddest thing, however, is that it is far from consistant. It seems that the files that get affected by this are random and it dosn't always happen to the same file twice. This issue is affecting multiple users here which leads me to think it's some incompatibility between dw and our server.

The server is running Windows Server 2008 with IIS7.

Has anyone else experienced this before or know what could possibly be causing this? I know dreamweaver does have some rudimentary permissioning but I havn't set it to do anything.
