I'm trying to upload user image on website. Here I'm using FileUpload control to upload image.

My Code is like this

C#
string fileName = string.Empty;
if (fuFranchiseImage.HasFile == true)
{
    fileName = DateTime.Now.ToString("MM-dd-yyyy_HHmmss");
    string fileExtension = System.IO.Path.GetExtension(this.fuFranchiseImage.FileName).ToString();
    fileName = fileName + fileExtension;
    string filePath = Server.MapPath(@"~\images\" + fileName);
    fuFranchiseImage.SaveAs(filePath);
}

Here i'm trying to save images into images folder in the application, and in SQL Server i just save file name.

When I try to upload in server its getting error like this

Access to the path 'D:\Hosting\12374540\html\report\images\04-10-2014_000650.jpg' is denied.


Please could anyone help me to solve this problem

There is no issue in code. You have to set access rights(Permission) for images directory on server. Currently you don't have access to save image on server.

How to check for folder permission? I went through FileZilla and right button clicked on images folder, then clicked on Properties then I saw
1. Owner Permissions
2. Group Permissions
3. Public Permissions
I checked all options but still getting same problem.

Is there other changes to do in that?

Hi #Aboobakkar Siddeq D U ... How did you solved this issue.. I have been trying to fix this from the last 1day.. Mine is also same issue.. Fileupload is working in local but not in server. I couldn't find any errors like permission denied but observed that server.mappath is returning the path with full path from the root like C:// or D://. How can I save uploaded file in server within the project without giving full path..
Check your folder permissions: you probably need write access to all users.

All users? Just the account under which ASP.NET application is running needs write permission to that folder.
I think it's wrong with your
string filePath = Server.MapPath(@"~\images\" + fileName);
I think you shall loose the ~
I write:
string filePath = Server.MapPath(@"\images\" + fileName);
or
string filePath = Server.MapPath("~\images\" + fileName);

No....still its getting same error
The process under which you web application is running does not have write access to the directory. That is the default setting for default account under which asp.net run. You options are - either you can use a more privileged user account (which isn't a very good idea) or give write permission to that folder for that a/c. You can find ways to do that here - https://www.google.co.in/#q=file+upload+permission+asp.net[^]
On more searching you can find an article on MSDN explaining this in detail.

Hope that helps!
