Site is prompting for username and password on windows plesk.

Windows Plesk site prompting for username.

This problem can be fixed by one of the following methods because this can be caused by 2 things
either permissions on the site files or password mismatch between the windows user and IIS, by
doing both of these this should fix the problem:

Stage 1:

Open the command prompt on the server (click on start, then run, enter cmd and hit enter)
in the command promt change directory to the plesk admin bin folder, (cd C:Program
Run the following command from this folder

websrvmng.exe –reconfigure-vhost –

replacing with the domain name as it has been added to plesk
Close the command prompt when that program has finished (this usually only takes a couple of
seconds you know when it is done because the cursor is back on a new line)
If this does not fix the issue then go through the following:

Stage 2:

1) Open IIS

Start >> Run >> and type inetmgr

2) Locate the site, right click the site name then properties (this is below web sites)
Click the Directory Security tab, then on edit next to authentication and access control.
You will see a username and password at the top of this new window, delete the password which is
masked out and type in the FTP password you used for this site when setting it up, then click OK
(you will be prompted for the password again to confirm)
Click OK on the properties window, close IIS
