ASP Classic pages do not work: HTTP Error 404.x - Not Found

Applicable to:

  • Plesk for Windows

Symptoms

ASP Classic pages not working properly. The following error message displayed when you open site from the server itself.

    HTTP Error 404.3 - Not Found
The page you are requesting cannot be served because of the extension configuration. If the page is a script, add a handler

    HTTP Error 404.17 - Not Found
The requested content appears to be script and will not be served by the static file handler.

Cause

1) Handler mapping was not configured.

2) 32-bit mode is disabled in Application pool for domain.

Resolution

  1. You may configure ASP script mapping either on server level or on domain level

IIS > SERVER_NAME > Handler Mappings > Add Script Map and enter in the following information:

RequestPath: *.asp
Executable: %windir%\\System32\\inetsrv\\asp.dll
Name: ASPClassic
Request Restrictions: File
Verbs: GET,HEAD,POST
Access: Script
  1. Make sure that Application pool works in 32-bit mode:

IIS > Application Pools > DOMAIN_APP_POOL_NAME > Advanced Settings. set Enable 32-bit applications to True
