I used IIS 5.1 via win XP SP3 and made asp classic application. I tried uploading via FTP to my account on the root folder but the server would not recognize it. I installed IIS 7.0 for x86 and set the default page name too. Even tried switching default.asp file to default.aspx. The real problem is I wouldn't be able to access any of the files (even image) via web browser. For example, there is a "apple.jpg" file in the root folder and my domain name is "www.blahblah.com". Then wouldn't I be able to see the file through browser when I type "www.blahblah.com/apple.jpg" on the URL bar? Seriously need some answers! thx for your concerns!
