Step 9. Give the IUSR_[ServerName] and IWAN_[ServerName] full control (read, write and execute) of the “App_Data” folder inside the “guestbook” folder. This can be done by either right-clicking on the folder, choosing properties, selecting the “Security” tab and clicking on the “Add” form, or by doing the equivalent from your webhosts control panel.

That’s it! Your guestbook should be ready now.
