I'm having issues with running my website under IIS 5.1 (Windows XP Pro). I've
been trouble shooting this thing for hours with no luck. I really think this
might be a permissions issue, but I'm out of things to test...
My site works perfectly using Visual Studio's Cassini server, but it fails to
load in IIS; IE7 displays a blank page and Firefox displays a XML parsing error.
I have my 3-tiered site set up like so:
and the default page here:
In IIS, I have the default web site folder (local path) set to C:\Web Code and I
have all permissions checked in the home directory tab. I'm using the url
http://localhost/WEB/Default.aspx in my browser when I try to hit the site. I'm
also using ASP.NET version 2.0.50727.
That being the case, I still can't get the page to load. I thought this might be
a permissions problem, so I created a completely new Hellow World site in
C:\Temp. I set the default web site folder (local path) in IIS to C:\Temp and I
was able to access it using http://localhost/default.aspx. This test site worked
fine in IIS. Confused, I changed the permissions in my C:\Web Code\ folder to
match those in the test site. I'm still getting the error.
I can't think of anything else I'm doing wrong. Perhaps I've missed something.

so, if the virtual directory is set to c:\Web Code
you'll need to browse to: http://localhost/Web Code/WEB/default.aspx

Is WEB set as an application in IIS? IIS help is at
www.iis.net. Same login as here.

I'm not sure if this fixed it, but in IIS manager under the Web Sites folder, I
had no permissions and I was missing Default.aspx in the documents tab. When I
restared IIS, my site was up and running. Thank for the hints - I'll keep my IIS
posts in the right site from now on!
