The site you are trying to view does not currently have a default page. It may be in the process of being upgraded and configured.

Please try this site again later. If you still experience the problem, try contacting the Web site administrator.


If you are the Web site administrator and feel you have received this message in error, please see "Enabling and Disabling Dynamic Content" in IIS Help.

To access IIS Help
Click Start, and then click Run.
In the Open text box, type inetmgr. IIS Manager appears.
From the Help menu, click Help Topics.
Click Internet Information Services.

How can i solve this problem.?

setup a web in your inetpub folder.
it sayes, that you did not set up a default.htm or index.htm in your Website Root.
it's no fault, It's just a installed IIS and no HTML Files copied to Inetpub.
Check your Home Directory Tab in the Properties for your Website.  Make sure the Local Path is set to the directory with your web content.  Select the Documents Tab and make sure that the default page you are using (index.asp for example) is in the list and at the top.  If there are multiple pages (index.htm, index.html, index.asp) in the same directory IIS will grab the first one it finds according to that list.

Hope that helps.
