    IIS 'Service Unavailable'

    Hi there.

    I have recently started using INtrexx Extreme at work to create portals and applications. While designing these there is a button to view your work in a browser.

    When i do this, i get a browser which just says 'Service Unavailable'.

    If I go into IIS and browse the website, it brings the same thing up.

    I found a thread online that say's if you go into the properties of the 'My Websites' folder and check the box 'Run WWW service in IIS 5.0 isolation mode'. When I do this it solves the 'Service Unavailable' problem (although a cross appears next to the 'My Websites' folder) but when i try to view the default site again it just brings up the page cannot be displayed message.

    My internet connection is working, just incase anyone thought of that.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    David

    Open the website properties page and then the Home Directory tab. What's the setting for Execute Permissions? Is write access set?

    IIS 5.0 isolation mode is the equivalent of XP's compatibility mode. A good example is CMIS and/or its components require IIS 5.0 isolation mode on Windows Server 2003.

    Other applications like WSUS 3.0 won't run in IIS 5.0 isolation mode, so it's impossible to run both these services on the same server.

    In my experience, Service Unavailable messages are related to the .NET Framework. If you already have it installed, try repairing .NET Framework 2.0 for .aspx sites. .NET 1.1 is included by default in Windows Server 2003.

    Have a look here, it seems there are lots of reasons for that error.
