First, follow the instructions you get in the "Details" of your error message so you can see the real problem.

Second, I really don't think you should try to make this site without Visual Studio.

Why not download the free Visual Studio 2005 Web Developer Express? And get SQL Server 2005 Express to go with it.

But you'll need to do some learning with it before trying to tackle ThePhile.

You asked a lot of questions that are answered in my readme file. Did you read it? I explained exactly how to set everything up.

You may need more experience with SQL Server and ASP.NET before you're ready to create your own module. But please do try to get this working because you'll learn a lot that way.

Why are you talking about your "ftp" start page? If you have an ASP.NET hosting company they will let you configure the name of your default page. If they do not, then you need to complain loudly. Which hosting company are you using, or do you have your own server you're deploying to?

If your web provider uses only linux, then you will not be able to use them for ASP.NET. ASP.NET is a special application that runs on a Microsoft IIS Webserver. (I know some Mono people use ASP.NET, but I don't think it's fully functional).

Of course, you'll also need a SQL Server.

You should set it up on your own computer first, and then deploy it later to another computer. If you can't make it work on your computer then there's no point in trying to deploy it.

It sounds like you don't have much experience in ASP.NET. A beginners book would help you a lot.

I explained in my instuctions that my version must go into the virtual root. You can install the app from the zipfile into a folder on drive C, then use the IIS configuration applet to change that folder to become the new root (home) folder of IIS.

I just used c:\ThePhileII and then I changed IIS to use that instead of c:\inetpub\wwwroot as the virtual root.

Then hit it with http://localhost
