I have Windows Server 2003 with IIS6. Every time I request something that ends with .asp server returns a 404 error, but not a usual one, the error response is as follows:

HTTP/1.1 404 Not Found
Content-Length: 93
Content-Type: text/html
Date: Tue, 07 Jun 2011 07:14:27 GMT
Connection: close

<html><head><title>Error</title></head><body>�� ������� ����� ��������� ����.

What's the origin of this error and how can I fix this?

I would guess that your ISAPI mapping for the .asp extension is broken. I see the same thing when I'm debugging ISAPI served PHP on IIS6.

Your error code looks like a 'friendly' error. That's set in IIS6 as well. Try to get proper error messages. Also, check the IIS logs and Windows logs.

Have you tried just using a basic .HTML file to see if the same issue happens?

Also have you added in page.asp into IIS as an allowed document type?

Agreed with Dan: also, 404 is a response the Web Service Extensions list will send to a client if the .ASP extension isn't explictly allowed from that interface.

There'll be a substatus code logged in the web logs that you can search on to more closely identify that item.

Check that:

  • ASP is enabled in SYSOCMGR (Add/Remove->Windows Features)
  • Active Server Pages is allowed in Web Service Extensions in the IIS MMC
  • Script permission is granted on the folder you're interested in
  • There's a script mapping for .ASP at that folder (or any parent folders)
