    I followed the video on setting up a blank project through MS Visual Studio 2008. I was unable to find the exact web.config file that had the <cms listed in the file. Regardless, when I executed the website, the webpage opened to a parent directory folder. Please help.

    Hello Biagio Di Cioccio Jr,

    I am attaching the default web.config for Sitefinity 3.7 SP2 .NET Framework 3.5 that comes with the Blank project. After you run the Blank project through Visual Studio you should see the StartupWizard screen. Then you need to follow the steps.

    Thanks for the zip file, the file was considerably bigger than the one I had, but I had the same results, which I attached to this response. I copied the unzipped file to the blank project folder and viewed the website in browser and the results are attached. Please let me know how to correct this issue, so I can use sitefinity.

    Hello Biagio Di Cioccio Jr,

    Disable the directory browsing for IIS. More information at Enable or Disable Directory Browsing in IIS 7. Also make sure that you have default document set in IIS.


    Best wishes,

    Completed both of those solutions, but still have the same results. Any other suggestions? Do you think sitefinity folder became corrupt and I should start over from scratch on install?

    Hello Biagio Di Cioccio Jr,

    Could you please check if you are able to run a regular .ASPX page? Just create one in Visual Studio and request it in the browser. I have some doubts that Asp.Net might not be installed on the system. 

    Let us know about the results. 

    All the best,
    Georgi

    The website seemed to have loaded. Attached is a screenshot of the loaded asp .net website.

    Hi Biagio Di Cioccio Jr,

    Looking at your screenshot, I see that you are running the page on the built in server in Visual Studio, rather than running the page in IIS. What I meant was creating a Virtual Directory, making it application, and creating an aspx page to which the virtual directory points. 

    We still want to help you. If you want, we can perform a GoToMeeting or a Remote Desktop session and make the necessary changes to your web server, so you could run Sitefinity. We are located in GMT+2 (EET, Sofia, Bulgaria) time zone, and are available from 10am till 6pm, business days.

    Please let us know if this is acceptable for you, and about your time schedule.

    Kind regards,
    Georgi
