I cannot access 3 pages in the admin panel:




There is another posting that deals with this for IIS 7.5 but I am running IIS 7:

BE admin problems

Does anyone know of a fix for this? I even tried testing out the default installation of blogengine out of the box, deployed it to my server and still the same issue. I am definitely thinking there is something in IIS that is not configured, but what???

I appreciate any help at finding a solution.

In this instance, I don't think there's a difference between IIS 7 and IIS7.5.

Are you getting 404 errors, or is there a specific error number and/or error message?

Those URLs that are not working are Razor pages which have the CSHTML extension.  So your server is likely not configured to handle Razor or CSHTML.  It could be a configuration change is needed, or something needs to be installed.

Probably the best thing to do is post here, or Google the exact error number or message you are getting.

I am getting 404 - Directory or file not found. I added cshtml to my MIME type. Do I need to do anything else. Do I need to actually install MVC 3 on the server itself for MVC3 application to run?
