W2012 R2 IIS cannot access website

I just migrated my first website to IIS 8 on a W 2012 R2 server.
When I attempt to access the website I get this message:

HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found

The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler. If the file should be downloaded, add a MIME map.

Is there a component I am missing that needs to be installed back in Server Manager? What settings can I check in IIS 8? This is not working while I try to access the website directly on the W2012 server.

What extension is the website on, index.htm?

And check ASP Registration using aspnet_regiis.exe -i on the command line

Well there was a clue. Running aspnet_regiis.exe did not work as it did not recognize that command. I am installing ASP 4.5 right now. I assume you do not need to also install ASP? I also looked in the web site folder and there is no index.* file of any kind.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

After installing ASP 4.5 the error message is now:

HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found

The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.

Can you tell me what's the first page?  if it's index.htm or index.php, try browsing the site with the subfolder.

I beleive there is something not correct about their installation program. Here is a screenshot of the subfolder and there is no index file.

On IIS, go to the website, double click default document and add login.aspx.

See if that helps.

Imtiaz HashamTechnical Director / IT ConsultantCommented:
Usually, web developers call their software index.htm, index.html, index.aspx or index.php (Depending on the type of application).

In your case, IIS cannot see any of the default documents to load because the aspx page is called login.aspx. (Without the full stop).

Adding this should fix it as advised above.

If it doesn't let me know and i will be glad to look into it further.

if I attempt to browse to this website on the IIS server I get "HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found
The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler." If I attempt to browse to it from any other machine I get "404 - File or directory not found."

The call to this site is http://myserver:8080/mysite.net

I have something else on port 80 so I had to move it to 8080.

By the way, that was after adding Login.aspx to the Default Documents.
I appreciate your help. Thanks.

Imtiaz HashamTechnical Director / IT ConsultantCommented:
You can run multiple Websites on port 80 as long as they have separate bindings.

Under Bindings, ensure each website has different bindings to resolve this matter.

rwheeler23Author Commented:
I have turned off the other application service that uses port 80. It is not a website, just  service. Even doing that and then binding this website back to port 80 I still get the same message when I attempt to hit the site.

Imtiaz HashamTechnical Director / IT ConsultantCommented:
And the bindings are correct?

I had to install ASP.NET in addition to ASP.NET 4.5
Thanks for the help.
