I am trying to setup orchard on iis on both windows 7 and xp with iis7 and 5.1 respectivly.

But if simply un zip and copy the contents of the orchard folder into my iis directory and browse to the site all i see is a directory listing i think i must be missing a simple Step as i have not setup an mvc app before only web forms stuff.

 

Do i need any special plugins for mvc?

All you need is for the app pool to be configured to use asp.net 4.0.

The app pool is set to .net 4, do i need to set the default file? As there is no default.aspx or index page etc for mvc.

No you don't. I'm a little confused by what you said first: are you on Win7 or XP, and are you on IIS 7 or 5.1? (because 5.1 won't work)

I was using two machines hence the different iis versions but i will just work on windows 7 from now on. Ill try andset it up again and see if come to any problems.
