Hi - I am brand spanking new. I am able to see my website in VS 2005 but now I want to transfer it to IIS.

I put it in c:\inetpub\wwwroot

When I type in the computer name in ie I get error

"You are not authorized to view this page"

Thanks,

this means your web directory needs permission add every one or IWAM_WKS.., IUSR_WKS.., and ASPNET to your directory than it will work fine.

Let me know if you need further clarifications

Hi Khaled,

I am able to get to the site to see the files but the actual web page is not coming up. This is what I see when I put hte server name (natsmf04) in the address bar of the browser:

natsmf04 - /

did you create a virtual directory for IIS? I think you have to do that before it will actually serve a website.

No I didn't. I think that should do it. Thanks!

Directories inside of wwroot are by default configured as a Virtual Directories.
