Default installing a web server iis

hi, page 14 installing a web server


Just following your tutorial in ‘beginning dreamweaver 2004’ page 14 – installing a web server

I’m having trouble,

after installing IIS from my XP professional disk, I try and go to my internet explorer browser to put in http://localhost/localstart.asp but instead of opening up it just shows the internet properties box and will not open internet explorer.

If I open in my mozilla browser and type in the line, it says page cannot be displayed error 404.

Any ideas, thanks, Ian Hammersley

Hi there,

What do you mean with Internet properties box?

Does your PC have a network card?

Cheers,

Imar

Unless I can't help you of course ;)

For IIS to work on your local machine, Port 80 needs to be open, and your firewall / internet security must allow IIS.

To find out if IIS is running correctly, open the Services panel (under Administrative Tools in the Control panel) and locate World Wide Web Publishing. Make sure its status is set to Started. If it isn't, set the startup type to Manual, reboot the machine, and then manually start the service by right-clicking it and choosing start. If your security software is blocking the service, usually this will give you a pop-up from the security service asking whether to allow it or now. If it starts successfully, you can set the start up type back to Automatic.

Let me know if that helps; if it doesn't, we'll try other options....

Wat security software / policies are in effect? Do you have SP2 installed with the built-in firewall? Is port 80 open on that firewall??

Cheers,

Imar

Hi there!

 I am trying to do the same thing... I have dreamweaver one one computer, and want to have IIS on another computer that is Networked to mine. When I type in the http://localhost/localstart.asp in the browser on the computer with IIS, I get the error, "The specified module could not be found"

When I type in http://"pcname"/localhost/localstart.asp on my computer, I get the error www."pcname" could not be found, please check the name and try again.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Also, I tested an htm file and it seems to open fine...

ps- I checked the Settings in the control panel and the WWW published says Started.

Thank you!!
Lori.

On what computer did you install IIS, and from what computer did you try localhost?

http://localhost will only work on the machine that has IIS installed.

And how are the two computers connected? In a domain? Can they see each other and do they know their names?

Let's say you have a PC called Client and one called Server (the latter being the one with IIS).

What happens when you type

ping Server

in a Command Prompt on the Client?

 I have now actually installed IIS on the same computer as Dreamweaver, and I can't get .asp pages to load on that computer either.

The computers are connected through a router, though. But I think I'd like to get IIS working on the same computer as Dreamweaver first.

Thanks!!

And what exactly is the problem? Do you get an error?

Hi Imar,
 I get the error message "The specified module could not be found"

 I'm thinking it probably has to do with Windows Firewall, but I think I opened port 80 on the Firewall.... Could the router be causing a problem even though IIS is on the computer I am using??

Thanks again for your help!

Also, it prompts me for a user name and password.. is that supposed to happen??

I thought I should add that when I browse to the file and open it, It will open, but just as code...

Thanks Again!
