Today I was trying to run a simple web service that I had deployed on IIS, I kept getting the following error message while opening the web service with a browser.
HTTP Error 403.14 – Forbidden
Web server is configured to not list the contents of this directory
Here is what I did to get it working !
Step 1 : Open the IIS
Step 2 : Find the “Directory Browsing” option in the feature view of the web service application.
Step 3 : As seen in the screenshot below, enable the “Directory Browsing” option
Step 4 : Test again. It should work now. (worked for me atleast :P) Hope this helps you too :)
