Corrupt images/websites on new 2008 server
Posted on 2009-04-06
I have a new HP Prolaint ML350 G5 running Windows server 2008 as a web server. Everything is fine when viewing web pages on the server itself (using IE going to the site, and opening the actual html file on the server) All the images show up and there is no corruption.
When accessing the websites (thru IIS) from a different computer (xp or server 2003) some of the images appear corrupt. If I were to map to the sites folder from my workstation, and open any of the html files directly from the servers hard drive, there is even more corruption of the images, and some of the html looks corrupt. This is a problem because we use Dreamweaver on our workstations and our sites won't open in DW when there are corrupted images.
I transferred the websites to the new web server by zipping all of the sites together, and used a usb hard drive to transfer the zip file from on server to the other. Once on the new server I unzipped the sites and set up user permissions and IIS site mappings.
To make sure the files didn't become corrupt when being zipped I also put them on my desktop computer and they all load fine.
I have installed the latest nic driver for the server with no luck, and last Friday formatted and reinstalled the OS, with no change.
To recap, everything looks and works fine on the 2008 server. When using a different computer to access the files on the server they appear to be corrupt.
Thanks for you help
