I'm relatively new when it comes to network administration, but I have put in many hours of research and effort before asking this question. I know my question is similar to many others, but I don't believe it is a duplicate. My apologies if I'm mistaken.
I'm trying to run a PHP/Codeigniter website with IIS on a Windows virtual machine, but with the source code shared from the host (which is a mac). I'm getting the following IIS error when I try to load the home page:
Details on error:
According to this page, "This problem can occur if the specified content directory cannot be accessed." https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/942055/http-error-500-19-error-when-you-open-an-iis-7-0-webpage
So apparently I haven't successfully given IIS permission to the files on the mac side.
Here are things I have in place, which I've learned from many similar questions:
As mentioned above, the site I'm trying to run is built on PHP/Codeigniter. That's where I'm getting the error. However, if I change the "Basic settings" of the website to point to a simple html file shared from the mac, it displays just fine. So I suspect the error may have something to do with php, or with something more sophisticated than just displaying an html file.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
