Microsoft ASP.NET is more than just the next generation of Active Server Pages (ASP). It provides an entirely new programming model for creating network applications that take advantage of the Internet. This section includes information on configuration, security, and deployment of ASP.NET applications.

FrontPage Server Extensions does not support unicode content directory names or Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV). New FrontPage Server Extensions virtual servers should be assigned to the MSSharePointPool application pool. Also, do not make changes to the MSSharePointPool application pool configuration.

Note   If you have a Web site that uses Sharepoint™ Team Services (STS) from Microsoft, the following types of pages do not work without excluding the virtual directory containing the pages from the STS ISAPI filter:

ASP pages

ASP.NET pages

PHP pages

PerlScript pages


To enable these types of pages to work on your STS Web site


In the Central Administration Web site for STS, choose to Manage your virtual directory or Web site.


Under Defined Managed Paths, type the path to the virtual directory that contains your excluded pages (such as \MyASPPages) and select Exclude.
