Title

FM12 Server - Enable Web Publishing fails

Your post

I have a brand new Windows 2008R2 server on which I installed FileMaker Server 11 a few weeks ago. Last week I uninstalled FileMaker Server 11 and installed 12. When I run the Deployment Assistant for "Enable Web Publishing" I get the following:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THe FileMaker installation process was unable to communicate with the Web Serve you had previously selected.

SETUP:PRECONFIGURE WEB SERVER
Stop web server: succeeded
Creat app fmi-test: succeeded
Restart Web Server: succeeded
Start default web site: succeeded
Update WPE deployment configuration: succeeded
Test web server (http://192.168.66.205:80/fmi-test/test.xml): failed: Return code = 404

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A little bit of digging shows that the fmi-test directory was created here:

C:\Program Files\FileMaker\FileMaker Server\Web Publishing\web-server-support\test\fmi-test

however, there are no signs of any conifguration change in IIS7 or my inetpub directory.

Anyone else running into this?
