There is a problem with the page you are trying to reach and it cannot be displayed.


Please try the following:

Open the localhost home page, and then look for links to the information you want.
Click the  Refresh button, or try again later.

Click  Search to look for information on the Internet.

    Hi lingsaeed,

    I would a post a message in Community Support and ask them to move this question to the IIS area.  They will be better able to help you configure IIS properly.

    set your document type to login.asp in the IIS console.

    Ensure any include files use a virtual path not a file path.  If you are using a file path, ensure you have "enable parent paths" checked under the "hom directory tab" - configuration - options checked.

    Also, check the logs for specific errors: C:\windows\system32\logfiles\W3SVC###

    I would also remove all the code from that page and then try to load it

    Also, make sure the default website has been started(it will have stopped next to it if its not).

    You can get to the iis console through the control panel/administrative or right clicking mycomputer and selecting manage.
