Moving asp.net 2.0 from IIS6 to IIS7
Posted on 2014-01-14
I have an asp.net 2.0 application our company has had for years, based on a sql server 2000 database. I am trying to move it to a development server to test upgrading the database to sql server 2005 or 2008. The development server is running Windows Server 2008 R2 and IIS7; while the production server is Windows Server 2003 R2 running IIS6. I have set the application up in IIS7 and copied the web directory to the development server. When I try to browse to the website on the development server, I get this error:
401 - Unauthorized: Access is denied due to invalid credentials.
You do not have permission to view this directory or page using the credentials that you supplied.
I logged in with my normal domain user/password. They are both set to asp.net Classic and both have forms authentication. What else do I need to check/modify for this to open on the IIS7 development server?
