ASP.NET, IIS 6: HTTP/1.1 New Application Failed
Posted on 2007-11-22
I have a new installation of Server 2003 with IIS 6 running and serving simple static pages successfully. I'd like to get Active Server Pages working so I can teach myself ASP scripting. I added a file called default.asp to C:\Inetpub\wwwroot. The file only contains:
When I point a browser to this page, all it shows is: HTTP/1.1 New Application Failed.
Both the ASP.NET Machine Account and the Internet Guest Account have Read & Execute, List, and Read rights for the wwwroot folder. Also, in IIS Manager Web Service Extensions, Active Server Pages, ASP.NET v1.1.4322 and ASP.NET v2.0.50727 are all Allowed.
I'm new at this and have never used IIS before. Any suggestions? By the way, I installed PHP on this server and it seems to be working.
