SLN File and IIS Name

Nov 22, 2011 at 1:25 AM

The instructions suggest that developers can click on the SLN file located in the root of the installed folder. However, there is no SLN file anywhere in the download or install. Am I over looking this?

Also, it should be noted that the name used when creating the site during install (which is used as the site name/path in the web.config file must match the name used in IIS to create the site including the case, as it appears to be case sensitive. Thus if you have http://localhost/mysitename in the web.config file but create a site in IIS named "MySiteName" the pages will not be found when browsing the site in the browser. Actually the default /bvadmin page will appear but navigating to other pages (especially that require SSL) the URL will fail.

AFAIK the url should not be case-sensitive in IIS. Standard IIS functionality it to ignore case. Is it possible that you have some extension or customization running?

It looks like you're correct about the missing .SLN file. You can grab it from and I'll make sure it's included in the 1.2 release this week. Thanks for letting us know.
