Dear Experts:

I'm trying to install DotNetNuke on a WindowsXP machine with IIS 5.1. I've modified the /NETWORKSERVICE account and /ASPNET account for the C:\DotNetNuke folder. I've also setup the virtual folder within IIS. However, I still get an Error 403 (Forbidden) when attempting to access the page. Can someone please give me the key to this problem?

Did you set the directory as an Application Directory? Go to Properties of the folder in IIS Manager and set it as an application directory. (It's towards the bottom)

It is set as an application...represented in IIS with the open box icon, instead of the folder icon.

I answered my own question...I needed to add index.aspx to the list of start pages in the DotNetNuke site.
