Initial Installation on IIS

I have deployed a production build to IIS - running on port 5000. When I access http://localhost:5000 I get the spinning image and “Loading Squidex” - nothing happens.

I noticed in the log file the following:

Hosting environment: Production
Content root path: C:\apps\squidex
Now listening on:
Application started. Press Ctrl+C to shut down.

Does the “Now listening on” port matter ? Should I setup my IIS website to run on port 5000 ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Have you created the production bundles for the website also? Do you get 404s?

I think this port is the internal port between IIS and squidex but I am not sure because I have not used IIS in production with Squidex yet, only for testing.

Not sure what you mean by “production bundles” ? I followed the steps on then deployed the “publish” folder contents to IIS on my server.

I have installed MongoDB on the server also and tested that it is operational.

Can you check the browser logs please?

Never thought for a moment that it would be a problem with the browser, but as this is installed on a base Windows 2016 Standard server I only had IE. Developer tools showed me that it was pulling down all the code, but it was erroring and therefore never displaying anything.

I installed Chrome and I am logged in.

Sorry for the silly question, but thanks for the help.

Good to know, Great you solved it :slight_smile:
