You do not have permission to view this directory or page. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm getting the above error when trying to view a MVC 4 site. My site has been developed using .Net4.5, currently this is on a BizSpark subscription. I've configured the site to use framework version 4.5, I've detailed error messages & failed request tracing turned on. Although I'm yet to see anything named Falied Requests in the LogFiles folder using Filezilla.

    I can browse to an Index.html file if i place one in the site/wwwroot folder but this isn't what i'm after. The Home/Index route of my MVC site is whats required. The site works when published on my local machine running windows 8.

    I must be missing something, please can someone help resolve this.

    Many Thanks

  • How is the configuration under your virtual directory where is the site published? Are you able to access the login page?

  • All the site files are within the /site/wwwroot folder.

    No I get the following message,

    The resource you are looking for has been removed, had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    The Home/Index page I'm expecting to get to is a welcome page with links to the login page.

  • You only have to set the authentication on 'Azure Active Directory' to allow web browsers access to the app.
