If get 404 Page Not Found when testing initial Data Portal connection on server itself

When first setting up your Data Portal on your server as per the Help Documentation http://www.ayanova.com/AyaNova6webHelp/data_portal_installation_and_c.htm , you perform the step where you test the connection through ASP.NET by entering in the URL


This should bring up the web page similar to the following screenshot:

If instead you get a 404 page not found, do check that your Web Site Extensions are Allowed

  • Select Web Site Extensions in your IIS Manager
  • Make sure the ASP.NET v2.0.50727 is Allowed (or the ASP.NET version your AyaNova version requires - i.e. AyaNova 7 requires ASP.NET 4)
