Win7 Ent, 64bit.

I'm trying to configure a basic web site with IIS for use with a home media product.  When I click on the site, and go to advanced setting, I change the physical path to what I need.   On the left hand side, I can see the folder structure that I'm trying to access, but when I go to the site, all I see is the root of C:\.

Any suggestions?

Hi,

The root directory doesn't have an "index" file in that folder. The result is a list of all the files/folders.

1. Disable directory browsing is enabled on the SITE (DEFAULT WEB Site Home) and at the SERVER (SERVER HOME) Level.
       Enable or Disable Directory Browsing in IIS 7
                http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc731109(WS.10).aspx

       Enable or Disable Default Documents in IIS 7
                http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc754807(WS.10).aspx

Browse to http://your.domain.com to confirm.

If you have that disabled and not Default document configured in the list, you should get this error.

HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden
The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

Cheers,
