Hello,

Platform: server 2008 R2 and sql server 2008 enterprise.

Part 1
-------
After installing openelms (lms) I am able to access the default asp login page but when i enter a login id such as test, reporter, or admin I receive the following below.  I checked the internet and came across a method using a web.config file but the lms does not have a web.config.  

HTTP Error 405.0 - Method Not Allowed
The page you are looking for cannot be displayed because an invalid method (HTTP verb) is being used. Detailed Error InformationModule StaticFileModule
Notification ExecuteRequestHandler
Handler StaticFile
Error Code 0x80070001
Requested URL http://training:80/lms/standard_login.asp
Physical Path C:\inetpub\wwwroot\lms\standard_login.asp
Logon Method Anonymous
Logon User Anonymous

Part 2
------
after reviewing manual and making a couple of modifications but no change.  I now receive HTTP 500 by enabling ASP in roles.  If I uninstall the ASP service, I will receive the 405.0 message. I even uninstalled the WebDAV Publishing and see no change.

I have attached a image file to show what services are installed.  

I have Anonymous Authentication enable and everything disabled because the manual wanted me to make sure I do not have IIS 7 configured to use automated Windows authentication methods such as Active Directory.  Do I need to make additional changes?

Please share your suggestions.

For 405 error, it is missing VERB in IIS handler. Also if you take a look at your code for page "standard_login.asp", does the <Form> tag had action defined.

Once you enable ASP follow steps as per this EE conversation to view error in your browser, which would display detailed error and help with debug steps.
