Hello,

I've gone through the install steps and when i try to go to the site (supposed to get the install screen) i just get either page not found 404 or directory listing denied. Nothing in event viewer or the monox logs. If someone could comment on what could be going on that'd be helpful. I noted the default.aspx in the root directory is referencing the codebehind file but i can't find that file on the system.

Thanks, NWOP.

Hi,
I assume that you unzipped the package to an arbitrary folder? You now need to do the following:
- use the Internet Information Services management utility (type inetmgr in the Start-Run box) to create a new Web site or virtual folder for MonoX. If you are using a virtual folder, make sure that a new application is created (Application Settings section in the Directory tab of the folder properties screen). Note that the Application Pool attached to this application must run under ASP.NET 2.0 or 4.0.
If you already did this the problem may lie in the fact that the default document for this folder is not set to Default.aspx ("Directory listing denied" points to that direction). The code for this page is compiled to the application DLL, so the codebehind file is not needed. Other than that, it just may be that you are trying to access the wrong address - we would have to have more details to give you a precise answer.

Hello,

Thanks. All of those things have been done and I and my coworker have been through the documentation many times. We are running .net 4.0 and have used the 4.0 web.config file. the default.aspx is the default page for the web site in iis. i'm not getting anything in the event viewer at all and nothing in the monoX logs. I certainly understand that you need more information to specifically help but i do as well-- i'm just getting the errors i posted before and nothing more. the url is certainly correct since when i allow browsing it does indeed browse to the root where we unzipped the zip file. The only questions that i had at all were these:
1. What is meant by setting up an application in IIS? We set up the web site and it has its own app pool running by itself (no interference from another .net version).
2. When it says to set the installationdone to true is that after the install process has been run or just in the case of using .net 3.5+? We've done this both ways and get the same errors. In fact, we've tried many permutations of different settings and pretty much get the same error(s) depending on our directory browsing setting on the directory.

Thanks again.

The errors you are getting and the fact that logs are empty indicate that request is not routed to the MonoX engine at all - the error is being thrown by IIS before it arrives there. Everything else seems to be fine, including the app pool settings. "InstallationDone" flag is to be dealt with after the installation is finished, and only if the ASP.NET worker proc does not have rights to modify the web.config file - since you cannot run the installation at all this is not relevant.

Just to check - the app pool is running in the integrated mode?

I would suggest that you send your contact details to our support e-mail, and we can contact you via MSN or Skype to fix this situation quickly.

Thank you. We are using IIS6 and not 7 so it isn't in integrated mode. Yes, it is definitely not getting past IIS, agreed. We will probably be able to work on this further either Friday or next Monday. We really appreciate the prompt assistance-- very impressive.

OK, just give us a shout when you are ready. I must admit that your combination (IIS 6 + .NET 4) is not something we see very often, but it should work nevertheless.
