IIS 6.0 can't run ASP pages - config has been verified!
Posted on 2007-10-10
Hi guys, MAJOR problem! Our web server won't server ASP pages! We're running Windows Server 2K3 Web Edition fully patched w/ IIS 6.0.
Basically, when a user accesses an ASP web page, the page doesn't load -- it just times out and gives a 404. This has been happening for 4 DAYS!!! Crazy downtime!
I've restarted the machine and IIS several times. The email server running on the same machine works great. ASP and ASP.NET 1.1 and 2.0 as well as SSI are enabled in Web Service Extensions. The default documents are set correctly as well as everything else. Static HTML documents work fine.
Also, I checked permissions and other settings such as documents/everything else an IIS admin checks. I've never seen this before.
One other thing that I find interesting is that the machine can't access regular web pages like MSN.com and Google.com -- at least on Google everything loads execpt the logo. On MSN it seems nothing loads except the basic code -- no linked CSS files or images or other content. I'm assuming this is part of the problem or is related, because this is exactly what we're experiencing with the sites being served.
What's going on?
