FAQ

Using the plugin on Windows IIS

Yes can use the pluging with ASP and IIS! It takes few extra set up steps. You’ll need to add .ejs mime types to IIS.

IIS doesn’t like the file extension of the ejs javascript templateing engine used by the plugin (.ejs). You need to add a MIME extension for .ejs with type :text/html in your IIS administration panel. If you do that everything should work . Here is an blog I found on the subject
