Orchard installed via WPI on Windows 2003 IIS 6.0 web server. WPI installation completes successfully. However, when I access the Orchard site from the web browser, this is what I see:

Directory Listing Denied

This Virtual Directory does not allow contents to be listed.

 

This is pretty much how the settings look like: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/23480476/Orchard.PNG

Any ideas as to what I may be doing wrong?

Did you enable wildcard mapping?

sfmskywalker, I don't know how to do that (newbie). Is there any documentation on the Orchard site?

sfmskywalker, wildcard mapping is NOT enabled on our IIS 6 Application Configuration.

Ok, then that's most likely the problem. Please check this post on how to configure it: http://haacked.com/archive/2008/11/25/asp.net-mvc-on-iis-6-walkthrough.aspx (not everything applies to your case; just the section called "IIS6 Extension-less URLs".
