I am running iis7 on windows server 2k8.
i install iis7 and when i browse to localhost, i see the iis7 default website.
however, when i create some new basic test.html or test.htm pages and put them in the sub folders of wwwroot. Then, i add new website in inetmgr.exe. everything seems ok, but when i browse to it, it gives me error 403.14.
under "things you can try" it advice me to enable directory browsing. so it did what it said, but then when i browse the site, it only bring me to the directory of the site. and that is not what i wanted.
however, when i make a basic iisstart.htm and put it in the same location of directory, it works when i browse. it doesn't prompt any error. But again, when i change the name to like test.htm, or iisstart.html, i would get the error message.
isn't that sounds awkard?
how can i fix this so that i can browse to a site call test.htm or something, rather then iisstart.htm?

A 403.14 error means 'Directory listing denied' as per this KB article :
The HTTP status codes in IIS 7.0
You need to either allow directory browsing (if that is what you want) or specify a default document.
