I have followed the following tutorial for creating a custom feed: http://docs.nuget.org/docs/creating-packages/hosting-your-own-nuget-feeds
I exported the NuGet server by creating a deployment package through Visual Studio 2010, but because i couldn't get the installer to run properly on the server, i simply dropped the contents of the deployment package's zip file in the virtual directory.
Of course without all the configuration xml etc.
I then tried to access the feed through my browser. All was still well and i was able to open the feed. I tried downloading the .nupkg package directly, but IIS returned me 404 pages. I had to add the MIME type application/zip to the Web Site in IIS to be
able to download the nupkg file directly.
After that i went to Visual Studio, i was able to download the feed, but when i wanted to install the package i got a 404 page. My problem looks very similar to the problem as described at: blogs.thesitedoctor.co.uk/tim/2011/09/02/Nuget+Server+On+IIS6+Returns+404+When+Downloading+Package+After+Upgrade.aspx
, however the fix turns all my pages into 404's, even direct GET requests of the Default.aspx page.
Through fiddler i found that the GET request of the NuGet plugin to the server is: GET /api/v2/package/c4.core.common/184.108.40.206 HTTP/1.0
I don't have a folder api, so i guess it has to do with the rerouting that should occur. I think that is what is being suggested in the solution in the previous link that i have provided, but which im not getting to work. I must admit that i'm a novice with
IIS, so i may overlook something very trivial.
My current setup is IIS 6.0, and the NuGet feed is hosted in a virtual directory under the wwwroot called nuget (I.e. C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\nuget)
Your help would be much appreciated.
