I have received an old system, and trying to figure where my redirect is coming from

The main inetpub/wwwroot page is as follows:

<TITLE>OptiTex maintenance page</TITLE>
<meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" content="0; url=">
<a href=""></a><br><br>

You are being redirected. <br>


I am trying to change that, but even if I delete the Default.htm page from the folder, I still get the same behaviour when browsing to the page My Default Document list for the Default Web site is:

Nothing seems to effect the redirect page.

Here is my wwwroot folder (nothing there)

Where should I look further?

For some reason I can't post this as a comment to your question so here goes an answer.

Could be:

  • browser caches redirect parameters;
  • one of the other Default Document files present in the root folder (maybe hidden);
  • server config.

If you're using Firefox - try to debug this with Firebug or HttpFox to see what happens and what headers are received. If any other browser - there should be some built-in or 3rd-party tools available.

Thanks, I also used this site . It must have been a browser cache. – Saariko Aug 16 '12 at 8:39
