Windows Server 08 error 403

  1. I have my old retired amd64 box running as a web server for my business. I enabled iis7 and all of its services and it reaches the outside world.


    When i take away the two default files (html file and a picture, iis7 welcome screen) it gives me a 403 forbidden error. Even if i dump files in the wwwroot catagory i still get this error

    so in other words, my server only works with the 2 orgional files that come with it.

    Any tips? I ran WAMP server 2 back when this was an xp machine, but am determined to get it working without any extra software (minus my php photo files)
