I am trying to set up my Windows Server 2012 to run an ASP.NET website. The website can serve html pages and .svc pages, but whenever I visit an .aspx page, it will simply time out.
Error 118 (net::ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT)
Creating a new web site in IIS8 and pointing to the same folder made it work. Now the site is working fine and running code as normal.
My guess is, that if I created the website before installing all needed features, they were not part of that site. Now, after installing a new site, it contains all the current features.
It doesn't make TOO much sense, though, as the server had ASP.NET 4.5 from installation (it's Windows Server 2012).
