I ran Build Precomiled and uploaded the contents to my remote server. This my first deploying or at least trying to deploy Orchard on a remote. Previously I had only used Orchard locally. After upload I browse to the site and get a 404. Log file is blank. Thoughts? Cannot get to Admin either.

Perhaps an invalid connection string?
Which folder did you upload?
Before uploading, you could try running one of the output folders using WebMatrix / Visual Studio.
Make sure you copy over Media and App_Data manually to one of the output folders (e.g Stage or MsDeploy) before you publish or run locally.

I uploaded precompiled. I can run it locally and I get to the setup page where i needed to enter the site name, conn string info etc. However remotely I dont get the setup page. Media and App Data are present remote

Have you granted read/write permissions to App_Data folder (and subfolders) to the user under which your application runs (IUSR by default iirc)?

OK got it working. Not sure what the issue was but it is working now.
