Basic newbie question.

Hope someone can help with this. I've created a test web form in vs 2003. When I upload to my webspace, the default page (index.aspx) is not recognised.  This must be easy to fix but I can't find the solution.
Just to test things fully, I've uploaded a hand coded Index.html file and this works as expected.
Any pointers gratefully received.
Thanks.

Re: Basic newbie question.

The Plusnet servers run Apache and you'd need MS IIS to run ASP.NET so unfortunately it's never going to work.
You could run IIS on your own machine if you just want to play around and try things.

Ahhh I see. so basically it's a case of

    .Aspx files will only run under ms.iis.
    MS iis will only run under a MS server (2000, 2003 etc).
    Plusnet hosts it's webspace on servers using Apache. 
Thanks very much for your help. I've been messing around for a couple of days and you've provided me with the explanation in a matter of hours. This also explains why the pages work fine on my development machine but won't upload.
Thanks again, you've saved me loads of time.
Regards.
