I am redepoloying my site with the new Visual Web Developer. Unfortunately, I have run into a newbie snag... go figure..
anyways... this one has been tormenting me for 2 days and I cant seem to get past it. Maybe you have a clue?
running 2003 server
.net 2.0 framework
I can build the site with no problems locally on my xp machine and view the page from the localhost, but when I try to copy the site to my server, it shows up as page not found. I checked and rechecked all the permissions to make sure the read permission was set. it was.
I tried it about 10 times before I decided to take a different approach... I created the virtual directory and left it essentially empty. Then I put the address into my browser, and viola... (with directory browse permission on of course) I can see the directory list. but the moment I create a web there, its not found.
I tried every thign I could think of to view the page, and nothing (page not found), even though I am previewing it from the Visual Web Developer Solution Explorer menu (thus it obviously does exist in the web, and no chance to typo it that way).
I made sure to be running the correct framework, and not accidentally to leave it on the 1.1.... i just dont get it. I have created many IIS 6 sites before with no problem, and as long as I create and view the site on localhost, it works, but only form that host. I have VWS installed on both the client and host, so I decided to try to build it right on the host, and got the same results; I can only view it from the host and not from the client this time.
long winded story there for a simple problem... any idea what I missed?
