I was wondering if anyone had come accross this error.
I installed Visual Studio 2003 on Windows x64 (with IIS 6.0) a few days ago, and i got an error that i'm hoping someone here knows something about.
When i try open a web application, i get the following error:
"The web server reported the following error when attempting to create or open the Web project located at the following URL: 'http://localhost/ApplicationName.' 'HTTP/1.1 503 Service Unavailable'."
I found a fix somewhere on the internet last week that sorted out the problem... but i was dum enough not to save the link to the page and now i can't find the solution again. Today, i ran my web application again, and all of a sudden, i get the same error!
I have been googling the error all day, to no avail. Everyone seems to have solutions that don't work. I have used ASPNET_REGIIS -i but that just starts the ASP.Net server, registers the web extension, and nothing much else.
I can ping my localhost, but when i type http://localhost/ into a web browser it returns "Service Unavailable"
Any ideas, please please please help... this has gone way past annoying.
