ASP Blank Page

Hi, I just set up IIS on my personal computer to start trying to learn it and I am trying to get your basic hello world to display and all I get is a blank page.

This is my source code when I do a "view source"

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <html>
  2. <body>
  4. <%
  5. response.write("Hello World!")
  6. %>
  8. </body>
  9. </html>
I double checked my setup and I have ASP pages selected.....I just get a blank page that says its been loaded. What did I not do right? I'm running Windows Vista and IIS 6

I also saved the asp file in a folder I placed in the inetpub/wwwroot/ folder.

What did you put on your browser address bar?

Even better, what is the exact name and path of the file, and what did you put in your address bar?

if the path is C:\inetpub\wwwroot\testing\test.asp

then you should be able to look at the file by putting on your web browser:

if that doesn't work, you might want to make sure that the testing directory is configured to work in ur IIS Manager.

Hope this helps

What daniel is getting at is that the server needs to open the file and send it to the browser. If the browser opens the file it will give you the un-interpreted code. Typing the address as "...localhost..." into the browser ensures that the browser asks for the file from the server rather than just opening it directly. notice that this problem only occurs when the server and the browser are on the same computer.

I typed it in like you said and it worked :) Thank you. Also, thanks for the explaination, I need to understand why as much as how. I appreciate your help.
