Hi, I'm having problems with hosting the live version of my website. This page which displays photosets works fine running from the VS web server but when I upload it to my host this is what I get with pages dealing with flickr... at my host I have these users enabled. I've posted the error message the server is spitting out at me.
Anonymous ASPNet User
Anonymous User (IUSR)

Access to the path 'FlickrNetCache' is denied.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the path 'FlickrNetCache' is denied.

ASP.NET is not authorized to access the requested resource. Consider granting access rights to the resource to the ASP.NET request identity. ASP.NET has a base process identity (typically {MACHINE}\ASPNET on IIS 5 or Network Service on IIS 6) that is used if the application is not impersonating. If the application is impersonating via <identity impersonate="true"/>, the identity will be the anonymous user (typically IUSR_MACHINENAME) or the authenticated request user.

To grant ASP.NET access to a file, right-click the file in Explorer, choose "Properties" and select the Security tab. Click "Add" to add the appropriate user or group. Highlight the ASP.NET account, and check the boxes for the desired access.

I think the error is pretty self explanatory. The code doesn't have permission to write the cache directory. Either set the cache location to somewhere you do have permission to write to or disable caching.
