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 developed a simple Photo Sharing website using ASP.

It is still under development but you can view it and give comments.
