I am new to ASP.NET having been used to ASP. I have created a web application that runs fine in Visual Studio 2013. I want to run it on a Small Business Server as a website.
I created a new Site in IIS7 and as part of that process pointed the site to the folder on the server that holds the web application files. I initially copied those to that folder using VS2013.
Once the Site was Created I can now see the site listed in IIS under its name "AIPWeb" and if I open the application pools collection I have an application pool called AIPWeb and it contains 1 application "Root Application" that has the physical path that points to the folder on the server holding my files and site "AIPWeb" and it is application pool AIPWeb (V4.0).
I have set my default page to "default.aspx" which is the starting page in my site. I also set the bindings to type "http" Host Name "AIP" Port "80" IP Address "*" and I thought I was good to try out my site.
If I then Select the site "AIPWeb" and in the Actions pane click "Browse AIP" on *:80 (http) IE opens up with the address http://aip/
and I just get the message "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage" ??
Can anyone point me to what I have missed as it's driving me barmy!
