Data directory cannot be created by the installer
 

Moodle installation is unable to access data directory, even though I have given full permission to the iis user. When I give full permission to Everyone it works fine, but I can't give full permission to everyone because of the security issues. What is the user whom I should be giving the permission to? Who is missing from the iis user group?

Server details :

Windows Server 2012 R2 , IIs, php 7.1.11, Moodle 3.3.2+, sql server driver 4.3.

Particularly helpful Moodlers

Have you checked this link: http://php.net/manual/it/install.windows.iis7.php#install.windows.iis7.impersonation

These permissions are required for Moodledata access with IIS.
