Sitefinity 5.4, Windows Server 2012, MS SQL Server 2012, IIS 8.0
I am unable to pull up the backend Users page with a brand new site, using IIS 8.0 (app pool as network service). That page continually spins the loading message.
The Pages backend page returns several error one of which is a 404.
What configuration needs done on IIS 8.0 to get the site to respond?
I believe the problem is a compatibility issue since you are running Windows Server 2012. The platform is not supported by Sitefinity and thus the unpredictable behavior. Please take a look at our System Requirements page.All the best,
At the time when I wrote the reply (01-Mar-2013) Windows Server 2012 was still not officially supported by Sitefinity.
It seems that IIS needs to be further configured on your server. Can you please try the suggestions provided in the following thread and let us know of the outcome? Also go through our Documentation on setting up IIS to host Sitefinity projects and make sure that everything is correctly configured.
