Trouble deploying web site
Hello, I am somewhat new to web development, coming from a WinForms background. I am trying to deploy a web site to a server. The server is running several other web sites at the moment.
I opened IIS on the server and created entries for a Web Site and an app pool. I set the web site to use the app pool that I created and selected a port that is not being used, 87 (I've tried using the same port as a different site, except that didn't work either). I copied a plain web site that does nothing except display a white form with no functionality to make things as simple as possible (I also tried copying the contents of one of the existing sites and that produced the same result). I selected its root folder as the location of the site in IIS. Allow anonymous access is selected and a service account that is being used for all of the other web sites on that server is being used. I've also tried making the newly created Web Site entry in IIS use the same directory, app pool, and login information of an exisitng web site with port 87 instead of 85 and the result is the same.
I can not access it from the Internet on my computer, nor can I browse it in IIS on the server. I get the standard "Internet Explorer can not display the web page" when I try to browse it in IE. When I try to browse it in IIS, I get "Content from the Web site listed below is being blocked by the Internet Explorer Enhanced Security Configuration. I am able to browse all the other sites on the server in both IIS and IE. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be?
