I am working on a project to create our own wms server in which we add our own customized data to display on the map over the internet. I have downloaded map suite wms server edition, and went thru the quickstart guide. As said in the guide, I set the templates to ".NET Framework 3.5 for the project. After building and debugging the project, I installed the wmspluginservice to IIS 7 on my localhost with defaultapplication pool set to.NET Framework v2.0.50727. I am able to publish the map with our own data on it at my localhost. But the problem is that when I copy the wmspluginservice inside inetpub\wwwroot in our test server and create a web application on IIS7 and browse for the application, the admin page appears but when I click to preview the maps, pink tiles appear not showing the world map on the browser.
Do I need to modify the web.config file to include the paths for shapefiles of our own data inside <appSettings>?
In the test server the IIS 7, has the default application pool as .net version 4. So, i created another application pool for. .NET Framework v2.0.50727such that the wmspluginservice uses this. Is the problem of pink tiles appearing related to this?
I cannot figure out the problem for pink tiles appearing on the map.I need to solve this issue asap.
I also wanna know if thinkgeo supports openlayers and if there are any documentation/references showing how. Since I want to display this wms with openlayers.
I will be very appreciative if you could help me solve this problem.
