I tried deploying a Classic ASP in Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit with IIS 7.5 but failed to start it in the first place.

An error occurred on the server when processing the URL. Please contact the system administrator.  If you are the system administrator please click here to find out more about this error.

Steps:

  1. Go to My Computer -> “Uninstall or change a program” -> “Turn windows features on or off” then select “Internet Information Services”
  2. Copy and set up the application under “Default Website” in IIS. Attempt to start but failed.
  3. Manually selected “IIS Metabase and IIS 6 configuration compatibility”, “ASP”, “ASP.NET”.
  4. Use test.asp page to see what is the problem. The issue seems to be in the #include file tag.
  5. Install “Server-Side Includes” in IIS under “World Wide Web Services -> Application Development Features”.
  6. Page still showing error. Suspect problem with “Handler Mapping”.
  7. Google for solutions and try adding “ServerSideIncludeModule” from the solution from http://tech.mikeal.com/blog1.php/server-side-includes-for-html-in-iis7
  8. It doesn’t solve the issue.
  9. So I tried click on the “here” link which redirect me to the answer after a few clicks on the related links.

The answer can be found here: http://learn.iis.net/page.aspx/566/classic-asp-parent-paths-are-disabled-by-default/

The reason is “Parent path is disabled by default” in IIS 7.5 which cause the #include tag not working. Change the setting to True and click Apply. Refresh browser. Voila. My application is working now!

Enable Parent Paths = True

I have a dream to do a community work by getting old computers for teaching the poor about computers. I hope more people have similar vision and join me to make it a reality. My considerations are:

  • Where can we get the old computers
  • Who can help do the installation
  • Who can help to teach the course
  • Some concerns that I am not aware yet

I am thinking to find any organization or company who would like to demolish their old computers. I have sufficient knowledge to do the installation and teaching more people who are willing to help. However, people who are more professional in this area are most welcome. I hope I would get more volunteers to join me in this charity project.
