SF 5.0 deployment to Verio
I am trying to deploy a new site to Verio. The client chose Verio wo/ our final blessing. It seems Verio does support ASP.NET 4.0. However the site simply doesn't come up.
I've verified the hosting service does work with ASP.NET 4.0 WebForms by testing a very simple project.
Also I was able to transfer my SQL data to 2005. The data passes a data comparison using VS 2010. And I modified the DataConfig.config to reference the new database.
The client is planning to switch the URL from an existing site. So the license hasn't been set to any URL except localhost. This hasn't been an issue on our company LAN.
Bottom line: the site doesn't respond. I get a "Request timed out" error if trying the /sitefinity/ admin url. And I recall the connection eventually gets reset if accessing the root.
So where do I start? I don't even have any logs to read.
Firstly I want to share the following article which can guide you when deploying your project on IIS:
If you are using IIS6:
Please make sure that all the configurations are correct. Additionally, you can review the following documentation section which is also connected with deployment.

I have made some progress with the Verio deployment.
To recap, my site is developed in SF 5.0 Small Business Edition. The host is running a Verio VWS (Virtual Web Server). I don't have direct access to IIS. The admin is through a proprietary Control Panel.
I have two specific issues at this point.

I did not have these issues on our servers. I will be contacting Verio support shortly. But I am hoping someone has some insight concerning these preliminary issues.
The permissions over the App_Data folder might not be read, write, modify (full) and this prevents the css files from being read. Please make sure that you have these permissions. When in IIS the "network service" that is the user that connects to the site`s database or another user you might be using does not have full permissions over App_Data I think the anonymous user may get this problem.
By default Sitefinity 5.x uses Claims authentication, which might be the possible reasons for the exception
