Looking at IIS 10 on Windows 2016 with php 7 trying to install a Moodle 3.4
I'm getting stuck with an error message of
Parent directory (\\Moodledata) is not writeable. Data directory (\\Moodledata\moodle1data) cannot be created by the installer.
Is there a debug I can turn on to try to establish what user the IIS thinks it is using.
I have given IUSR appropriate write permissions on the Moodle data folder I've created the moodle1data folder so it doesn't actually have to write that, but I'm still getting the error message.
I basically used the notes from the past when we had Moodle on II7.5 and Windows but it doesn't seem to like the IUSR. In the past it was IIS_IUSRS but that does not appear to be a default account any longer.
I can't use a local account because the data folder is in a different location.
The alternative is that it doesn't like the double back slash for the network location and I need to find out how to write that differently.
