    Post Installation V5 : Right Frame 404 on Settings -> CSS, Site

    Hi I've just installed V5 on W2003 Server under its own site (port 8888) and SQL 2008 backend with the standard sample site. 

    If I click through to settings / Stylesheets  and look at any of the css files I get 404 page from IIS (below).

    I'm installed and uninstalled it and given permission to Network Service and IIS user (don't think this was required thou).

    Any Ideas anyone ?

    Thanks in advance

    I have the same problem on Windows Server 2003.

    Ok, I found a solution. The problem is that .net doesn't handle the requests for the extensions .js .css and .c$html. It just tries to open the files, and they don't exist.

    You need to map these extensions to .net in IIS 6:

    Open your site properties, go to Home Directory tab, click the "Configuration..." button.

    Add each of the 3 extensions to the application extensions list, select the .NET 4 dll as executable, and unselect "Verify that file exists".

    Thanks for the reply but this does not work me; these extensions don't work with the browser or are not served to the browser and you loss all css and js for the sample site. Also the css and js files are not available for edit in the /Umbraco admin tool

    BTW Other posts suggest that Umbraco 5 is not fully compatiable with WS2003 and IIS6 and WS2008 and IIS7 is required.  Can anyone confirm this ?

    My solution didn't work as i thought, I had the same problems you mention. We will probably upgrade to iis7.

    I have this problem under IIS 7.5.

    I can acces the frontend, normal content pages. But i can't acces templates/macro's/css files/js files. The umbraco loading bar keeps 'loading'. Fiddler tells me that it return a 404.

    Tried to debug it with the umb5 source but because IIS is giving the 404 it never gets to umbraco. What IIS setting do I miss???

    Running IIS on integrated mode.

    Exactly the same issue, my hosting provider updated to .net 4.0 integrated mode, which fixed this too.
