OK, I am running windows 2003 small business server. Basically we have a few internal sites up and running, pretty much the ones that windows comes with, default & companyweb. So I have been trying to create a new one in IIS. Everytime I create it and try to go to the page it always comes back page can not be displayed. Basically I start IIS manager, under websites I right click, click on new, then website. Here is everything I entered in the wizard. Description: IT Database, IP Address: 192.168.1.2 (IP of the server), TCP port:80, Hostheader: itlife, Path: C:\Inetpub\itdb, allow anonymouse access to this website, Read and write scripts. Application pool: itlife, enable default content page: index.htm etc etc etc, enable anonymouse access, integrated windows authentication. I create an index.htm file, place it in the correct directory and open the following page http://itlife/
and it get the error the page cannot be displayed, I have also tried right clicking on the index.htm file within IIS manager underneath IT Database and click browse and receive the same error message. This is driving me nuts. Now, I have done this in XP pro, of course XP pro only supports one site, so I edited the default site, basically changing the host header, changing the directory, and editing C:/windows/system32/driver
s to include 127.0.0.1 itlife. I didn't edit the host file in the 2003 small business server because it didn't seem necessary as, all of the other internal sites were not listed in this file. So I have no idea exactly what I am missing here?
We also have sharepoint installed. i have tried to create a top level website using the virtual server (lol that doesn't work) It Databse, but of course the page still does not load. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
Also is there anything I may have to do differently so that all of our users on the network can aswell use this site?
