Title: IIS displays code instead of page.

Sorry, David. I have not had this particular error. I have confronted others and when I can’t seem to figure out where I went wrong, I usually simply run through the post-install or completely re-install. You might run back through the post-install help guide and make sure you have completed all the steps.


Some things to consider…what web browser are you using? Do you have .net 2.0 framework installed? I assume you are an administrator for this machine? Have you reviewed the group members for the SOM?


I have only used the ESRI web help. Good luck!

Subject: [OKGIS] IIS displays code instead of page.


I recently installed ArcGIS Server (AGS) on my personal workstation to use as a testing and development box.  However, I encountered a problem the very first time I tried to start ArcGIS Server Manager and haven't been able to get past it.  Basically, it just gave me an error message, which I won't recount here.  I contacted ESRI support and went through some testing with them.  At the end of that the analyst suspected it was an IIS (Internet Information Server) problem and sent me a simple test file to use as a test web page.  He gave me instructions to install it in a location unrelated to ArcGIS Server.  When I installed it and browsed to in in a web browser, it show the code instead of performing the action and displaying the page that the code defines.

The ESRI analyst concluded that this must be an IIS problem, configuration or something.  That's odd since I only just installed IIS in the process of installing AGS.  I certainly haven't made any customizations to the IIS configuration that I'm aware of.

I asked our webmaster about this and she hadn't encountered this problem and didn't have any suggestions.

Have any of you encountered this problem and know the answer?
If not, do you know any good IIS forums or tech sites that I could submit this query to?
