Another problem with another simple tweak 🙂
Migrating another website from IIS6 to IIS 7.5 and I had to manually create a unique Application Pool as it was using the Default Application Pool (not recommended), when I tested the website I had the error:
HTTP Error 404.17 – Not Found – Static File Handler
To fix this
- Open the properties of the new Application Pool, Advanced Settings
- (General), Enable 32-Bit Applications = True
- Managed Pipeline Mode = Classic
Test your website!
