    Manual Installation of Perplex

    Greetings friends

    I manually installed Perplex on an existing project. Everything works fine except when accessing form security where this error occurs

    Request failed: The URL returned a 404 (not found):


    the version of perplex that i've installed is PerplexUmbraco.Formsextensions1.55

    The version of umbraco is (7.4.1 assembly: 1.0.5891.23238) and the version of umbraco Form is "4.3.2"

    Can someone guide me about where the problem may be? thaks!

    Edit: Curiously, the problem is only about productive IIS or local IISExpress. But with IIS from Visual Studio does not happen.

    Hi Martin,

    Can you check if the file is indeed missing from disk? If so, I am not sure why this would be the case, but you can fix it by simply copying the file edit.html from the package file to the specified directory. This should hopefully resolve the error you are seeing.

    If the file does exist, and certain webservers do return the file properly while others yield a 404, there appears to be a problem with the configuration of those webservers and I am not sure if we can do anything to fix it in that case.

    Hi Daniel!

    I forgot to mention that I had already checked that the file exists and the permissions are granted.

    Right. I think it must be some configuration of the server that is restricting access to the file. For the moment I solve it by creating a custom control.

    Thank you for the time spent in reading and answering.
