I've tried to browse to .html, .png, .css, .txt files, but the page just comes up blank. I have tried browsing from other machines - same issue. Also (may be unrelated) there are no log files where I expect them to be: C:\inetpub\logs -- it only contains 1 empty wmsvc dir. Any ideas?

  • Ah, you need to enable logs by installing the feature in "Turn windows features on or off" -- IIS > Health and Diagnostics – Nick Bolton Jul 9 '10 at 14:58
  • Also, any file I go to (exists or not) it shows a blank page, but says code 200 in the log. Weird... – Nick Bolton Jul 9 '10 at 15:05

This occurs when "Static Content" is not checked in add/remove features under the IIS node.

  • Open Control Panel
  • Click Programs and Features
  • Click Turn Windows features on or off
  • Check "Static Content" in Internet Information Services > World Wide Web Services > Common HTTP Features
