This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

What OS or version of IIS are you running? Is the app ASP or ASP.NET? – Chris_K Jan 1 '10 at 16:14

Hai jyoti,

  • Try restarting the server, or at least IIS.

  • Double-check your virtual directory setup in the IIS management console.

check if you have installed IIS server correctly... Re-installing the IIS server might fix the problem... Also check the version of the OS you use. Some versions of windows have compatibility problem.

Is the host header for the site you're trying to access specified correctly? Including with www. and without?
