Hi, I am not sure what could cause my website to display the projects file listing instead of the intended home page?

During the upgrade, here are some packages I had to install :

PM> NuGet\Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.Mvc -Version 5.3.0 

***PM> Install-Package Microsoft.AspNet.WebApi.WebHost ***

PM> Install-Package -Id  Microsoft.AspNet.WebHelpers

I also had to make changes to my web.config and my view/web.config versions.

    Hi @iqworks Information Quality Works

    You should have encountered this problem when deploying a website at IIS.

    Let me talk about three solutions:

    1.You didn't select the right path when adding the site at IIS. In fact, you should choose your project directly.

    For example:

    When you select a folder for a project instead of selecting a project directly:

    123

    That will bring up the table of contents:

    345

    If you do this, it will work fine:

    234

    1. Configure web.config:
    <system.webServer>  <modules runAllManagedModulesForAllRequests="true" />  </system.webServer>
    
    
    

    3.Enter commands in the console:

    C:\Windows\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v4.0.30319
    aspnet_regiis.exe -i
    iisreset /stop
    iisreset /stop
    

    Best regards,

    Qi You
