I have a composite setup locally and one on a hosting server. When working in composite the locally I can use the page "preview" just fine. however, after uppoading composite c1 to the hosting server this feature does not work - page is just blank when trying to preview. Any ideas on how to troubleshoot this?

Need more info:

  • What version/build number are you using?
  • Is it a 'official release build' or based on your own compile from CodePlex sources?
  • What are the IIS versions used locally / remote? On IIS7+ are you running in classic or pipeline mode?
  • Anything in the server log?

What browser? (more likely than server side code)


Use Firefox and Firebug:

  • Check for scripting errors
  • Check for 404s

Thanks alot for the input. As I was collecting the information needed I changed from classic to pipeline mode on the remote server and that did the trick! Thank you for leading me in that direction!
