Hi Ross,

At first sight, your mapserver installation seems ok ... It's the demo that have to be correctly configure.

Try setting debug on in the mapfile like this :
-Add DEBUG TRUE on the first line of the Mapfile
-Add LOG "DEMO.LOG" on the WEB element of the mapfile

Run the application again and see if any usefull information appears in the log file.

Also, it could be a permission issue (about 90% of time...).  Like I always tell, try running filemon (http://www.sysinternals.com/ntw2k/source/filemon.shtml) when you call the page and check if you see any ACCESS DENIED message.

I have the demo working well here on Win2k/IIS and MS 4.0.1

Good luck,
Nicolas Fortin

I tried the path info mentioned and still no luck.  Any other suggestions?


Correct path to image directory as below:

- Create tmp directory under C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\workshop\

<input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath" value="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\workshop\tmp\">

<input type="hidden" name="map_web_imageurl" value="/workshop/tmp">

- Create tmp directory C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\
<input type="hidden" name="map_web_imagepath" value="C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\tmp\">

setting up MapServer for IIS - the instructions are not all in one place. I am running Windows 2000 Server with IIS. I followed the install instructions to a "T" but the MapServer demo does not work. This is what I have done

the message No query information to decode. QUERY_STRING not set. which is good

instructions for IIS?
