Hi,

I have a website which runs fine when borwsed from Visual Studio.
But when I browse it from IIS, it displays  a message saying - Web page can not be displayed.

Any ideas why this could be happening?

Nothing in the event viewer logs.

Thanks in advance

Make sure you have default page set in IIS. Did you try accessing the page.
How did you publish? Do you have it properly configured VirtualDirectory
There could be several reasons.
Any screenshot or error and site in IIS Manager.
