    The problem is that the default stylesheet is missing from your server:

    The above generates a 404 error.

    Perhaps you had a file filter enabled in your FTP program that skipped over anything ".css"?

    Thanks codegrunt - this sounds stupid but that file is there, its definitely uploaded ok i can see it when i ftp -which is odd as the link above says its not there! lol

    Sounds like a file permissions and / or IIS configuration issue then. Check your error logs as they should explain some of what is going on.

    As an aside, it is getting into religion a bit but if you are wanting to run FOSS software designed using *NIX type platforms, you would be better served sticking with Apache running on Linux or FreeBSD. Going with ISS for anything other than ASP scripts is always going to be a pain. No shortage of Linux hosts out there and running tools locally while developing is just a free ISO download away.
