    Error accessing web application

    Hi all,
    I have configured the dns server so other users can access the web application by typing in http://intranet, but when i try access the application on the host, local machine the following error appears : Microsoft Vbscript runtime error '800a0046' /local start.asp, line 40. I have given access to the asp.net user and IUSR user, but for some reason the error still appears. I have created a virtual directory which points to the following location: C:Websitesitewebsite(this is where the application is saved/stored).

    Thanks for your help,

    Skips

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Can you give us a bit more information about this application, as I don't really understand the situation.

    What application is it?
    Where does it run?
    How do you connect to the application?
    Can you connect to this application from other Network PCs?

    regards,

    StuartR

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Hi StuartR, thanks for replying.

    OK, I am using an open source content management system to create an intranet system. When I first installed the application(CMS) I followed the instructions from the book. IIS has to be installed first for the application to run as well as MSSQL. I had to create a folder on the C: and called it website and within the website folder I created another folder and called intranet and within the intranet i created another folder called website again, then I had to extract the CMS files into the following directory: C:Websiteintranetwebsite. In order to install the application or CMS I had to create a virtual directory on the IIS server which points to the following directory: C:Websiteintranetwebsit, once you do that and give the right permissions to the folder to the right users.e.g ASP.net user and guest account user, then you install the application by typing in the following address on the browser: http:/localhost/intranet/default.aspx.

    The first tme you do this the application is installed and then to access the application again you type the same address: http:/localhost/intranet/default.aspx.
    I have configured the dns correctly by creating an alias but I cannot access the application but typing intarnet on the browser. This brings up the error listed previously. I think that hhtp://intranet is looking for the aplication on the wwwroot folder as it is coming up with localstart.asp , this is a file which exists on the wwroot folder.
    I hope that I have explained the situtation clearly.

    Many thanks for all your support.

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Hi Skips

    Type Inetmgr from Start|Run To open IIS manager

    Navigate to your web page folder via the structure

    Right mouse click your Virtual folder

    Select Properties

    Select Document tab

    Add Default.aspx as a default document...remove local start.asp from the list if it is there. If you want move Default.aspx to the top of the list

    Press Apply OK

    I reckon this should do the job assuming you have the VD's linked correctly

    Skips,

    I have moved this thread to our Servers forum, because you are more likely to find IIS expertise there than in the Networking your Home forum.

    Re: Error accessing web application

    I need more information then, this will be like hunting for a needle in a haystack. There are a plethora of reasons why you may not be able to connect from security settings in IE, to the way the virtual directory is set up , have you allowed anonymous access, are permissions set throughout the VD......have you contacted your vendor.....the list goes on.....Oh and another thing have you spoken to your Tutor at college as I know some colleges create massive restriction on InetPub folders and the systems guys are normally very helpful.

    So if you need more assistance, provide more details to your questions and if a solution does not work, don't just say you get an error , tell us what the error is, in the form of a screendump say....we are trying to help you, you just need to help us to help you...please?

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Can you run the page using the computer's IP address? How about http://localhost/?

    I'm curious whether different privileges might apply under the IE "local zone" model even with http:// rather than file:// access.

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Tutors at Uni wont be able to help me as I already asked, and the application is not stored on InetPub folder but on the C: drive in a folder called website. I think I have given rights to the annonomous user as well as asp.net user read and wright permissions.

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Ok, When I type in my IP address it comes up with a user name and password log in screen and once I try to access with mywindows log in details it brings up an error saying :HTTP 401.1 - Unauthorized: Logon Failed
    Internet Information Services
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    If I just type in localhost it comes up with the following message: Your Web service is now running.
    You do not currently have a default Web page established for your users. Any users attempting to connect to your Web site from another machine are currently receiving an Under Construction page. Your Web server lists the following files as possible default Web pages: default.htm,default.asp,index.htm,iisstart.asp. Currently, only iisstart.asp exists.

    To add documents to your default Web site, save files in c:inetpubwwwroot.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    But I can access the application through e.g. http://localhost/intranet/default.aspx

    Thanks,
    Skips

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Okay, that makes sense. I'm surprised it works from other machines without the additional folder name (http://servername/intranet/). I don't know how you do that. And it would be nice for one of our servers. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Well, It does not work from the other machines yet and that is what I am trying to do. I am using DotNetNuke CMS and on the DotNetNuke book it gives you the instructions to create a folder on the C drive and extract the files into that folder, and that is what I have done. Within DotNetNuke you have to add an alias e.g. intranet and I have done that too, I have also given permissions to the users and descibed on the book(otherwise you cannot install it). I have also added an alias on the DNS server. I posted the same question in dotnetnuke forum but they are not replying to my message.

    Thanks,

    Re: Error accessing web application

    Okay, so to summarize:
    <UL><LI>http://intranet/ -- doesn't work from anywhere (goes to inactive folder);
    <LI>http://servername/folder/ -- works locally on servername;
    <LI>http://servername/folder/ -- does this work from other machines on the network?[/list]Can you try redirecting from the "default" root of the web of http://intranet/ to the desired folder? You could temporarily use a meta tag:

    <code><!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01//EN"
    "http://www.w3.org/TR/html4/strict.dtd">
    <html>
    <head>
    <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
    <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="1;url=folder/default.aspx">
    <title>Redirecting</title>
    </head>
    <body>
    <h1>Loading home page...</h1>


    If your browser does not move along in a few seconds, please
    click here.</p>
    </body>
    </html></code>

    Re: Error accessing web application

    I have transferred the files into the wwwroot folder, and I can now access the application locally by typing intranet/default.aspx. I tried to acces the application from a different machine on the enetwrok but still does not work.

    thanks
