Problem loading 'Live' site


I have been developing a solution in WiseJ and all runs well in VS 2015 debug mode, however when I try to publish it I get a time out error.

For you information

I can ping the address to the server

I am using an application pool in integrated mode for dot net 4 (4.5 is a subset of 4)

IIS pointing to the folder containing the following







Bin folder contains



Solution dll


I have tried adding the themes, app data folders etc. .in all locations and no difference.

Also checked all the relevant IIS settings, folder permissions etc.


I’m at a bit of a loss now as to where to look next

Any help would be appreciated (web config below)

Hi Gareth,

How do you get the timeout error? Things to check:

  • If you created a new app pool, make sure it has full permissions on the app’s directory. (try with the default pool)
  • Make sure the app’s directory has full control for IIS_IUSRS (you can also try NETWORK_SERVICE)
  • Test this URL http://yourapp/wisej.wx (you have to get the loader code:
  • In Chrome with F12 look under Network to see what error you get, it’s possible that IIS is just not hitting the app.

Let me know.
