Problem with IIS 5.1(ASP.NET and windows XP)

83 New Member
Hii ,
I've IIS 5.1 installed in my machine and i created one website using asp.net 2.0 after tht created a virtual directory with name "DUMMY" and map the website path to the virtual directory .

When i open the IIS and rght click on the virtual directory tht i've created and select Browse..its showing all the webpages in the website.But when i click on a perticuler web page its not showing tht page and showing the error "The website cannot display the page".

This error (HTTP 500 Internal Server Error) means that the website you are visiting had a server problem which prevented the webpage from displaying.


I serached in the net ..but endedup with no soultion.

Please help me .

Thanks in advance.

Are you able to view html pages? If so check the web extensions.

Okay follow these steps:
  • Go into IIS and right click on your website.
  • Select New -> Virtual Directory
  • Click Next
  • In the Alias field type IISHelp
  • Click Next
  • In the Directory field, click Browse...
  • Navigate to the directory C:\[Windows Directory]\Help\IISHelp
  • Click OK
  • Click Next
  • Make sure that the Read and Run Scripts (such as ASP) options are both selected
  • Click Next
  • Click Finish
  • Right click your website again
  • This time, select Properties...
  • Click the Custom Errors Tab
  • Scroll down to Error 500 / Default / "Internal Server Error"
  • Click edit properties
  • Change the Message Type from Default to URL
  • In the URL field enter /IISHelp/common/500-100.asp
  • Click OK
  • Click OK
  • Click OK

Now instead of your website being configured just to tell you that there is a server error, it will tell you what that error is giving you a better chance of finding and fixing it.

A 500 error code could mean a number of things.
The first thing I would check is if you have ASP.NET installed and if your IIS is configured to run ASP.NET (and that configured to run the right version). The next thing I would check is the Windows Event logs for any errors that are happening.

This is what the event description i found in EventViewer.

The server failed to load application '/LM/W3SVC'. The error was 'The specified metadata was not found.
'

Thanks

Check to see if your Distributed Transaction Coordinator (DTC or MSDTC) service is running and that it is running under the Network Services account.

To do this go to Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services
Then look for a service called "Distribute d Transaction Coordinator" in the lists of services. Is it running? Is the "Log On As" user the "Network Services" account?

If it's missing you're going to have to install it.
If it's running under the wrong account you're going to have to change it.

See this thread for more information.

Hi, I'm writing this off the top of my head as I don't have the exact information to hand. We are attempting to set up a secure internet site using ASP.NET on IIS5. We are having some authentication problems early on in the project. The plan is to have 1 ASP.NET (IIS) forms application serving user requests and another ASP.NET (IIS) webservice interfacing to the database.
