New .NET application won't run in IIS

Hi,

I have a C# web application. It runs perfectly on the dev system. I published it and copied it to the live server. I manually created a new virtual directory. I set the .NET version to be .NET 2.0. I pointed it to the location of my web app and it gives me a 404 error despite being able to see the files in IIS. If I right mouse click and do Browse I get a 404. I manually created an html file in there called index.html and in there I did a redirect to default.aspx which is in the same folder. I set index.html to be the first file name to look for when no file name is given in the request. The html file loads and after 5 seconds redirects but gives me a 404 error. It is as if IIS can't see the .NET application in the folder. Any ideas welcome. Please ask for more info if needed.

Cheers,

Lee

Greetings,

Are you able to access the IIS Help pages? Normally these start with a IISStart.aspx or so... Not sure of the exact file name.

Under the applications that you have, are you permitting ASP to be executed? similarly is there a ASP.Net execute permission?

Post your findings...

You'll get a 404 if the ASP.NET web extension isn't allowed.  To fix this, open up IIS and click on the Web Service Extensions in the left panel.  Verify that ASP.NET is set to Allowed.  Once that is allowed you should be able to browse .net content with no issues.

LOL. I don't know how many times I've deployed .NET applications... I forgot to change ASP.NET from Prohibited to Allowed in the IIS Web Service Extensions.

I amaze myself sometimes... Thanks for pointing it out :)
