Hi, firstly i am new user on blogengine...

I downloaded blogengine files and configured web.config file to my database. i also gave write permission to App_Data folder for user.

and i have uploadded BlogEngine 1.6.1 (web) files to my subdomain (

But i has an error , it's related with my web.config setttings, I guess. I have tried a lot but i couldn't find a solution.

Could someone help me?

I'm having the same problem as you.

I have 1.6.1 installed in a subdirectory (\blog) of my website. I can only get blogengine to work when I remove the web.config from my root directory. I've even tried to set this up as a subdomain as well - still no luck.

I ended up stumbling across another posting that indicated that a web.config in a subdirectory will inherit properties of the parent web.config file - I had a feeling this was my problem so I went through both web.config files and somehow managed to get this working.

There are quite a few posts on this subject. Search "inheritInChildApplications" and you shall find the solution to your issue.
