HTTP Error 403 14 - Forbidden - The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory

0 votes

I have been able to create a new empty website in Visual Studio 2012 and clicked on run which is also the view in browser and I get this ERROR :

HTTP Error 403.14 - Forbidden The Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory.

I went into IIS and clicked on Directory browsing and then ensured that Directory browsing was enabled but I still get this error and am unable to figure this out. The website project I just created is not listed in Default web sites in IIS Manager which I thought was odd. How do I get rid of this error ?

Try keeping this into your web config file and then rename the add value="yourwebformname.aspx"
 

<system.webServer> 
        <defaultDocument> 
                              <files> 
                                  <add value="insertion.aspx" /> 
                              </files> 
        </defaultDocument> 
  <directoryBrowse enabled="false" /> 
</system.webServer>
Else
<system.webServer> 
        <directoryBrowse enabled="true" /> 
</system.webServer>
