asp.net 4.0 on new IIS7.5 server

New install of 2008R2 added role IIS7.5

Have very little experience with 7.5,  90% of my sites run on 6.0. and asp.net 2.0

Copied a asp.net 4.0 site to the iis7.5 webserver. Created a new website and set the bindings.


I did see that Framework 4 Client profile and 4 Extended are installed, do I need to download more?

Surprised there was not a asp.net application pool already defined so I created a Classic 4.0 app pool, but when I run the site I get a 404 error.

When I changed it back to default apppool I get an ASP.NET error unrecognized target framework, but it does the find the site.

Is there something I need to do to set permission for the new app pool?

Or am I on the wrong track entirely?

Thanks,

Rolf

You shouldn't have to.  Did you map the site to the directory where the site resides ( im sure you already checked that though )?  Ive never deployed a site per say the way your doing it, I typically grab the full .net framework.  I would suggest trying that out to see if maybe that would be the fastest way to get your site up and working since it probably involves the least amount of work.  Once you install that make sure that the app pool is pointed to the right version of the framework and your site should work.  Is there anything in the .net app that has dependencies ( may want to check this also )?

It's actually a bit more complicated.

I reinstalled the os, the old inetpub/wwwroot directory were still there from before the install.

All I did was create a website and point it to that pre existing directory. And then added the asp.net 4 pool since it was not there... I do not recall having to do this on other installs.

Wondering if I missed something during the install.

Baffled by the fact that the framework 4.0 app pools were not listed on the iis server, only 2.0 even though Programs and features said they were, I downloaded the full 4.0 framework and re-installed.

Choices were repair and remove, confirming it was installed. Did repair and voila the 4.0 application pools showed up. I deleted the one I had created, picked the one that came from the installer and the site works.

So my suggestion for installing the full .net version turned out to fix the issue ( regardless of which option you picked on install ).  I would appreciate the points.
