Server Fault is a question and answer site for system and network administrators. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I have an Asp.NET MVC WebApi application that works perfectly in development environment does nothing but return 404 errors when deployed to testing server.

  • Application is Framework 4.5
  • dotNET Framework 4.5 is installed on the server
  • Framework 4.5 installation has been confirmed in the registry using regedit
  • Ran "aspnet_regiis -i"
  • Using an application pool configured for .NET Framework v4.0.30319
  • Pipeline mode is 'Integrated'
  • Identity is 'Network Service'
  • 'ASP.Net_4.0_32bit' 'c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll'
  • 'ASP.Net_4.0_64bit' 'c:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework64\v4.0.30319\aspnet_filter.dll'

Thank you in advance for any insight on getting this working. Jim

Is the correct version of ASP.NET MVC also installed on the server? –  Chris McKeown Aug 20 '13 at 21:04
First thing with any IIS 404s is to get the sub-status from the http logs. They should point you in the right direction. –  Peter Hahndorf Aug 31 '13 at 7:17
