Erm, do I need Visual Studio in my Windows Server 2008 to make my website work? Somehow,I've set my Content Directory and my Visual Directory to the same folder with all my ASP.NET pages + codes inside but it doesn't work at all. Tried switching authentication mode to forms authentication. Enable directory browsing and all that but it doesn't work too. How am I suppose to go about doing it?

This is my web.config codes

Visual directory? Do you mean virtual directory? You shouldn't have multiple directories pointed to the same physical store (certain exclusions apply).

>>Tried switching authentication mode to forms authentication. Enable directory browsing and all that but it doesn't work too
What is your question? In general are the changes made inside of IIS not being reflected when you browse the site?
