When you precompiled your web site, you specified a virtual path to host 
the application in, but you are running it from a different location.  
If you precompiled this web site in Visual Studio, "Virtual path" is one 
of the propertis of the Web Site.  If you compiled from the command 
line, then the virtual path can be specified with the -v switch.

You need to make sure that you configure xsp2 or apache to host the 
application at the same path as the virtual path you specify when you 
precompile the site.

For instance, if you precompile your blog to be hosted in the /blog 
virtual path (using this statement):
c:\test\>aspnet_compiler -f -p c:\test\BlogEngine.Web -v /blog 

You can host it in the /blog directory using this xsp command:
xsp2 --applications /blog:/path/to/website

And you can browse to it from the local machine at this URL:

You can find more details in Gonzalo's blog entry:
