See more: ASP.NET Webmatrix
Hi! I have built an asp.net webpages site using webmatrix. But now that I published it I saw that's not working. I am sure that my windows host supports asp.net. Do webmatrix websites need special hosting? What kind of? What is the easiest solution to get rid of this disappointing situation? Do I have to convert my site to some other type now in order to be compatible?

The minimum suggested requirements for WebMatrix hosting are Windows Server 2008 R2, IIS 7, and both ASP.NET 4.0 and 3.5 available (How to config the host for webmatrix?[^]), but in my experience Windows Server 2008 is enough.
If you want to try to install WebMatrix on IIS 6 this thread could help: WebMatrix w/ IIS 6?[^]

The Windows is 64-bit Windows Server 2008 enterprise edition. (not R2) Now this means that I cant configure it?

I hosted WebMatrix sites on Windows Server 2008 following with success the instructions in http://www.iis.net/learn/web-hosting/joining-the-web-hosting-gallery/install-server-components.

Did your sites include databases? Did you have any problems with them? I have a sql CE one in my app. And by the way the cshtml files seems not to be recognized by the host as a supporting file type. (Did you have the same problem?)

My sites use both SQL CE and SQL Server 2008 Express.
After installing Web Server Components I haven't experienced any problem.
