[Mono-aspnet-list] Nginx and mono results in 404 when accessing aspx files

Ok, so nginx is running, and mono appears to be running as well (the fastCGI
module). The virtual website is responding fine and serves static files but
I get the standard "Server error" ASP.net 404 page when I try calling an
aspx file (hence mono is running and taking requests). Any ideas?

I've modified the nginx.config file accordingly (I hope) and since I do get
the 404 page it is probably configured properly so it might be a mono issue.

Thank you in advance.

configuration changes below (redacted):


server {
    listen       80;
    server_name  ********;

    #charset koi8-r;

    #access_log  logs/host.access.log  main;

    location / {
             root /var/www/********/www/;
             index index.html index.htm default.aspx Default.aspx;
             fastcgi_index Default.aspx;
             include /etc/nginx/fastcgi_params;


fastcgi_param PATH_INFO ""; fastcgi_param SCRIPT_FILENAME

The command line I start mono with is:

fastcgi-mono-server2 /applications=**:/:/var/www/**/www/

As I said, nginx connects to mono but it serves the standard ASP.NET "Server
Error" 404 page when accessing aspx files.

Tried testing with a simple Default.aspx page
