Type: Information


When you change the global setting site.File_Path and restarts the web site from the web properties dialog an error message occurs. This error probably is one of the following:

Number Description

Bad file name or number

75 Path/File Access error

Path not found

In Content Studio 4.0 build 1009 and earlier the description text was omitted (see the article Restart web site generates displays an alert with a number only.)


You will get one of the errors above if you deliberately or accidentally change the setting site.File_Path global setting to an illegal value. This setting determines where in the underlying file system the site files are located and should not be changed from the Content Studio interface. An administrator can change this value under 3 circumstances only.
#1 There is a need to move the site's file system to another location on the machine.
#2 After that you have restored the site to a new web server you might need to specify another file location.
#3 After renaming the site root catalogue or another catalogue above it.


Change the value of the setting mentioned above to the correct value and restart the web site again.


In Content Studio 4.0 build 1010 this setting will be read only in the user interface to prevent administrators accidentally from changing this setting.
