Error = The web server is configured to not list the content of this directory

I assume the environment to be  Windows 7 Professional, IIS 7. something. This error is caused when the directory browsing feature is disabled and or the default page is not properly set.  To sort out this issue go to IIS Manager. Open Directory Browsing.

Directory Browsing in IIS 7

Now click Enable from the options available on the right side. Restart IIS. Right Click on the App in the Default Websites tree. Click Manage Application , than Browse and Wala. The site will automatically start working. If there is still problems, check the default pages. if you have a default page other than the pages listed in the default page list. Add ur default page and check again. Site will be working.
