Hi 

I am in the process of moving my site built with Q3 2013 control set and running on iis 7.0 to a new server running iis 7.5. In both case the server is windows server 2008 R2.

 The problem is that after transferring all the files, including web.config and the telerik dlls in /bin to the new server, the ajax function has stooped working. symptoms: drop list does not display, buttons are not active and do not submit forms etc .

 I did upload a standard ajax toolkit menu to make sure it was not inability to run ajax per se, and it is OK.

 I have a feeling the answer lies in web.config, but I try to leave well alone if possible, since this is a legacy site and I don't plan any development work on it; i just want to relocate to a new server!

Can anyone suggest where the problem might lie, or how I can find out what it is?

Thanks

Clive

How did you copy the site?  Simple xcopy or did use the site export/import features?

 

Assuming you did the xcopy route, check your application pool (or create a unique one for your site).  Is it the correct .NET platform?  Is it properly configured to be pipeline or not?  Is your site configured to support scripting?  

In migrations I have done, I have had to adjust the App Pools and then adjust the permissions of the site.  As your web app now runs as the App Pool worker it no longer uses IUSER.

Hi

I uploaded the site using a plain file uploader. Exactly the same files as on my development machine. 

ASP.Net 4.0 is installed and registered with IIS and the site is in a 4.0 integrated app pool.

I have run some test pages (which work on my other server and development machine) that confirm

1. Plain old javascript IS working fine (used a date time display script)

2. ASP.net 4.0 ajax IS loaded, and enabled for the test page, according to code I got from the microsoft website

3. A simple ajax control toolkit menu control does NOT work (i.e. no mouseover effects)

4. Telerik controls are not ajaxified

Can you suggest some other diagnostics I might try?

 Thanks

Clive

Hi Clive,

Can you please check if you have Dynamic IIS Compression enabled on the new IIS you are trying to upload the project on? If yes try to disable it and see how it goes. Also in case you have RadCompression module in the web.config of your application, try to remove it and verify if this makes any difference.
