Error: When enabling Secure Folders get an Could not load file or assembly ‘SolidCP.IIsModules Error.
When I went to WebSites and enabled Secured Folders it gives me the following Error message:
Could not load file or assembly ‘SolidCP.IIsModules, Version=126.96.36.199,
or one of its dependencies.
The system cannot find the file specified.
Secured folders are more or less legacy (and i strongly recommend not to use them).
However if your required to use them here’s a bit of info:.
- the native method IISModules is from this plugin: https://iismodules.codeplex.com/ you can rename SolidCP.IISModules into WebsitePanel.IISModules in the IIS Configuration at solidcp panel to make it work.
- Helicon ape: I think this will only automatically install with web deploy and helicon zoo installed, a more easy way around it is to run the installer on your web server directly without trying to install through the portal
A extra note for method 1: It generally does crash on websites having a more complex .htaccess included, in general it bothers users more then it benefits.
To achieve the secured folders manually is also pretty easy:
- Enable basic auth
- disable anonymous auth
- Login with MS FTP accounts that have been given a minimum of read access.
