Installing FPSE breaks IIS
Posted on 2008-10-08
I am setting up a new server, 2003x64 SP2. Installed IIS with no problem. Localhost gives me "Page under construction". Next I downloaded the FPSE 2002 x64 Extensions and installed that. Went back to IIS Manger, extensions were visible (although the ASP.NET tab was not) and the Sharepoint Admin site was visible and running. Right click on either and select Browse gives page cannot be displayed, as does any of the frontpage tasks under all tasks.
I suspect that I am missing a DLL registration. Also I noticed that the FPSE was installed to program files(x86)/common files rather than the 64bit program files folder.
Reboot had no effect. Browsing to localhost or 127.0.0.1 had not effect. I know the problem has to do with my inexperience working with web servers, and am positive it's a configuration issue. So, what do I configure?
