Installation Problem Isolation
If, after installing, the web site is still not available, follow these steps to isolate the problem.
Check Web server functionality
If the web site is returning an error and not a web page, check that the server is running correctly. A simple HelloWorld.htm page is provided in the Admin site at the following address. (http://YourDomain.com/admin/HellowWorld.htm). You should expect a page with ?Hello World?. If this returns an error, verify the IIS configuration. This is not a Contensive error, but a server configuration problem.
Check ASP functionality
A simple HelloWorld.asp page is provided in the Admin site at the following address. You should expect a page with ?ASP Hello World?. (http://YourDomain.com/admin/HellowWorld.asp) If this returns an error, verify the IIS configuration. This is not a Contensive error, but a server configuration problem.
Check Contensive functionality
If the previous tests passed, test the Contensive status method (http://YourDomain.com/admin/Index.asp?method=status) This should return ?Contensive OK?. If it returns any other response, check the page source for an error comment. The most common issues are:
- Contensive Application Not Found - Open the Contensive Application Manager and verify your application is running. If it is, the problem may be DCom permissions.
- Connection Error opening Datasource Default or Audit - There is a problem with the database, the connection string, or the connection to the machine holding the database.
Check the Contensive Trace Log A trace log is created for all internal Contensive errors. The log is located at [Program Files]\kma\contensive\logs\Tracexxxxx.log. There may be several lines for each error, grouped together by the time of the error. Check the first line of each error group. Generally, the information most likely to assist you will be at the end of the line.
