First, let me say it looks "Sweet!"

Anyway, I got a;
HTTP Error 500.19 - Internal Server Error

The requested page cannot be accessed because the related configuration data for the page is invalid.

Commented out the following and it runs

<add verb="put" allowed="true" />
<add verb="delete" allowed="true" />


Do I need this?

I haven't tried to upload to host yet, still lookng around!

Also, is it by design that the site manager dosent work in locahost?

Changes port numbers and burps.

I think this is only needed if you have UrlScan installed and active.  I didn't think it would throw an error if UrlScan wasn't installed.  I'll look into that.


Also, site manager should work in localhost.

I had the same issue, but this is how I solved it:

I went to c:\windows\system32\inetsrv\config\, edited applicationHost.config and changed the following line from

<section name="requestFiltering" overrideModeDefault="Deny" />



<section name="requestFiltering" overrideModeDefault="Allow" />
