I have just completed a web application on my local machine at work and I copied all of the files over to our development server (windows 2000) so it can be tested by our users. Iâm having a problem when I run the aspx file on the server. The page comes up ok but Iâm not seeing any data from our database. So first I tried opening the project on the dev server in Visual Studio.NET and I got this:
Unable to open Web project ' espdev /dictionaryAdmin', The file path 'L:\wwwroot\ espdev \dictionaryAdmin' does not correspond to the URL
'http://Localhost:/ espdev /dictionaryAdmin'. The two need to map to the same server location. HTTP Error 404: Object Not Found
Next I tried running Visual Studio on my box and creating a project on the dev server but now I get the following message:
The default Web access mode for this project is set to file share, but the project folder at âhttp://oor-devel.edu/espdev/dictionaryAdminâ
cannot be opened with the path â\\oor-devel.edu\wwwroot$\espdev\dictionaryAdminâ. The error returned was:
Unable to create Web project âespdev/dictionaryAdminâ. The UNC share â\\oor-devel.edu\wwwroot$\espdev\dictionaryAdminâ does not exist or you do not have access.
Then I get 2 options: Retry using a different file share path, or try to open the project with FrontPage Server Extensions
How do I fix this? I installed.NET on that server several weeks ago. I created the application on my XP computer but I need to move the project on the development server and would like to make any future development on the development server under intetpub/wwwroot.
