ASP VB, IIS 5, Access, localhost & 404 Error - new install DW I've not seen this before.
I've got a new machine I've installed dw on. I've set up the site as usual in dw (loal, remote, & testing all point to the same directory).
I'm trying to be more secure by using virtual directories instead of putting everything in inetpub/wwwroot. I've created the virtural pointer in IIS.
I've given Everyone & IUSER full control permissions along the directory path that forms the IIS virtual directory.
I've created an ODBC connection that points to an access.db.
Now, whenever I try to defie a database in DW (application/databases), I get this message when I click the "Use Testing DSN" radio button and click the "Define" button:
HTTP Error Code 404 File Not Found. Here are some possible reasons for the problem:
1) There is no testing server on the server machine.
2. The testing server specified for this site does not map to the http://localhost/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.asp
URL. Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site.
Also, If I try to preview my template.asp page, I get the browser 404 File Not Found error page. Internet Information Services.
I've deleted the _mmServerScripts folder and let the site setup rebuild it. What am I doing wrong here?
