Ditto, Amonte! If you ever find an answer please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org
. Here is my scenario:
I recently upgraded my computer system from a Windows 98 using PWS to a Windows XP Pro (Pentium 4 Processor at 3.2 GHZ with HT Technology) - 512 MB Dual Channel SDRAM). I need to use IIS for an asp class to test web pages. I have version 5.1.2600.1 of IIS. I've been having problems with IIS in getting my pages to display.
My default web site is on in IIS and all folders are displayed on the left panel of IIS. The right panel displays all the individual files within a folder I have selected on the left side. When I right click the page I want to view on the right panel and select browse, I get a message that the web site has been found and is waiting for a response. However, the status bar takes forever to get to the halfway point and then hangs. Can someone tell me why this may be occurring.
If I don't use IIS to view my ASP pages but use Dreamweaver MX, I also have problems browsing/testing my ASP code now. It mostly occurs when I want to preview the page in a browser or use Live Data view. Dreamweaver hangs up. Also, when I want to go into Dreamweaver and view site information (such as Edit Sites), it takes forever and many times hangs again! I know this isn't a Dreamweaver forum but it may be a clue as to why I am having problems with IIS above.
I have two computers and a laptop set up on a wireless home network so am wondering if this problem may be related to the network configuration. Also, I've recently downloaded and installed all the latest security updates from Microsoft on my computer and this may be changed a setting in IIS somewhere preventing my pages from testing correctly.
My site information for my Dreamweaver folder is as follows:
Site Name: asp
Local Root Folder - c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\BegASPFiles|
http address: http://
Testing server info
Server Model - asp VBScript
Testing Server folder - C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\BegASPFilesURL prefix - http://localhost/beginaspfiles/
All file permissions are enabled on the web site folder BegASPFiles in IIS.
I'm sure this is remarkably simple but I'm new at this and have struggled to make corrections with little success. So far, posts to Microsoft directly and to Macromedia Dreamweaver's forums have resulted in no responses.. I've reinstalled Dreamweaver MX several times as well as IIS but the problem is still the same!
