I am trying to build an ASP.NET project and I am getting popular error:
The default Web access mode for this project is set to file share, but the project folder at 'http://localhost/WebApplication1' cannot be opened with the path 'c:\inetpub\wwwroot\WebApplication1'.
I have a virtual directory in Default website pointing to c:\inetpub\wwwroot\WebApplication1
Unable to create web project 'WebApplication1'. The file path 'c:\inetpub\wwwroot\WebApplication1'
does not correspond to the URL 'http://localhost/WebApplication1'.
The two need to map to the same server location. HTTP Error 404: Not Found.
Ofcourse name of my actual project is different. This project is already developed. I am just trying to build it but
I cannot even open it using VStudio .NET 2003. When I try to open the project I get above error.
I tried putting MIME type/extensions of .tmp text/plain. I restarted IIS after doing this but no luck.
Hi there, I was getting the same error and tried many solutions found from forums with no luck. I was trying to get a website working and carelessly changed some settings in IIS. If you havent found a fix yet, try this. Note these steps are from XP pro, win2000 should have similiar steps.
Open IIS console, expand to the Default Web Site folder and right-click, select Properties. Select the Web Site tab. In the Web Site Identification area, make sure (All Unassigned) is selected from the drop down list. I had my IP address listed in this drop-down box and it was using the IP instead of localhost. Hope this helps.
