    Here is my issue:
    - Community Edition 3.5 
    - Local Environment = IIS7
    - Beta Enviroment = IIE6 (discountasp)

    In development I can hit any page without the extension with no error - ie: localhost/restaurant (this displays the 'restaurant.aspx' page setup in the CMS.

    In beta when i try hitting "domain/restaurant" the server throws a 404 error. I can however hit the page at "domain/restaurant.aspx".

    I've been back and forth setting default documents, etc in beta with no luck.

    Any help on this would be great. Ideally i'd like to hit both pages with and without the extension.

    Thanks, Matt

    Hi Matthew,

    Thank you for using our services.

    Can you please check the IIS custom error configuration on your beta server. you have to provide custom redirection for 404 pages, be point to ~/YourSite/sf404.aspx. To do this in IIS 6.x, please follow these steps:

    1.Click All Programs > Administrative Tools> Internet Information Servicees (ISS) Manager.
    2.Expand the tree on the left until you see Web Sites > Default Web Site.
    3.Expand the the Default Web Site folder.
    4. Right click your project folder and select Properties.
    5.On the Custom Errors tab, select HTTP error 404.
    6.Click Edit.
    7.From the Message Type list, choose URL.
    8. In the URL field, type the path to sf404.aspx in your project - /Project/sf404.aspx.
    9.Click OK.

    If you are not able to configure the IIS settings on your beta machine you can also configure the custom errors in your web.config file like that:

    <customErrors mode="On"
          <error redirect="~/sf404.aspx" statusCode="404"/> 

    Please, see if the above will help solve that issue. If you have more questions feel free to contact us.
