500pts: default.aspx is missing from default content page under IIS?

Hi there,

I just copied a directory under my www root, and then right clicked and said create Create to create it as an application and now it is created. Problem is if i go to localhost/tester then i get the following error msg

Directory Listing Denied
This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

After closer inspection it appears that under Documents, Enabled default conten page that default.aspx is not there

Is this normal, it has .net 1.1 and .net 2.0 frameworks installed so i presume it should add the default page?

Any ideas, a bit stumped here

Of course if i goto localhost/tester/default.aspx then all is well... but i shouldn't have to specify the page should i ?

Thanks in advance

ian

Here is an example to help you out..

You need to make sure that you have NTFS permissions setup on the virtual folder to allow Internet Guest Access

the actual file.. no, not by default... manual entry is required (copy/paste file)  you have to put them into the web folder..

also, under the properties of the website, you need to specify the documents (tab) of what file you want to load up.. if default.aspx is it, then it must be added if not done already.. plus you want to "move" the file to the top of the list. such as

default.aspx
default.asp
index.htm
index.asp
