    Hello all,
    After playing around with the community edition, I desided to create a test website on our production machine.

    So I installed an extra sqlexpress 2005 instance on the server to hold the dbs.
    Copied all the website files from my local machine to the server.
    Created a new website (not a virual directory) in IIS7 with a seperate applicationpool.
    Assigned it to run in classic mode, set it to run under LocalSystem and set it to run in x32 mode.
    Then I attached the database and log files to the sqlexpress instance.
    And finally ran an iisreset to make all changes active. All looks oke so far.

    However, If I now start IE and browse to the newly created website I receive an error 503, service unavailible after about a minute and the applicationpool crashes. In windows event logs I have these event id's:

    Event ID 5139 Source WAS
    A listener channel for protocol http in worker process 8512 serving application pool sitefinity reported a listener channel failure.

    followed by Event ID 5002 WAS
    Which states the application pool has shut down.

    The problematic server is an SBS2008 x64.
    I have this running on my development machine which is Win7 x64 with no problem.

    Do you have any idea what could be wrong here, or what am I overlooking?

    Hi Ivan,

    Thanks for your reply.
    I had allready found the IIS document on the Protocol Adapter, you pointed out.
    This did not help.

    Also the first document does not seem to help, so I desised to start again from scratch and followed the same procedure again to create a new website and attach the database.
    This time the website launches normally as expected.
    However the first page load is very slow (5-10sec).
    After the first page is loaded all seems oke.
