    We have a sitefinity 4.3 project and it worked fine on our development server (IIS 7), but when we moved everything to the live server (which is running IIS 6.0), we got some issues in admin section. The front end pages are running fine, but I got an error, "Security settings for this service require 'Anonymous' Authentication but it is not enabled for the IIS application that hosts this service."(see the screenshot), when I clicked the 'Pages' link (or News ... under Content section) in admin. Can anyone help me out?

    It seems that not all of the necessary authentication methods are configured. Sitefinity requires "Anonymous Authentication" to be enabled to function. You can configure those settings in the "Authentication" section of your IIS manager.

    If you have more issues, I'd suggest looking at all of your server settings and making sure that they match the recommended configuration.

    Hope that helps!

    Hello Stephen,

    As Tim suggested please make sure you have allowed Anonymous authentication for your site in IIS. Please consider the attached screenshot.

    All the best,
