I'm new to IIS 7, I wanted to experiment with blogEngine with my local site however, I'm having problems installing the application. I used the instructions from the video guide as closely as possible since the guide was for an older version of IIS and windows
I had improvise using some other guides :
-Downloaded the Zip file and extracted it
-Removed the ReadOnly attribute of teh directory and moved it to c:\inetpub\wwwroot
-Went into IIS and Right Clicked the blogEngine and selected Convert to Application (the Add Application dialog box appeared). I did minimal changes here, if anything.
-Then I went to the AppData directory and changed it's permission. Since ASP.NET user was not available, I looked up the internet and it said that with IIS7 the equilant user is NETWORK SERVICES (?), so I gave NETWORK SERVICES modify permission.
I then navigated to localhost\blogEngine and I get the following 500.19 Internal Server Error:
|Module||IIS Web Core|
|Handler||Not yet determined|
Error||This configuration section cannot be used at this path. This happens when the section is locked at a parent level. Locking is either by default (overrideModeDefault="Deny"), or set explicitly by a location tag with overrideMode="Deny"
or the legacy allowOverride="false".|
|Logon Method||Not yet
|Logon User||Not yet determined|
126: <handlers accessPolicy="Read, Write, Script, Execute">
127: <add name="FileHandler" verb="*" path="file.axd" type="BlogEngine.Core.Web.HttpHandlers.FileHandler, BlogEngine.Core" resourceType="Unspecified" requireAccess="Script" preCondition="integratedMode"/>
Now, I haven't modified the web.config at all, and the guide doesn't mentione anything about modifying this file. I'm currently running Windows 7 which has IIS7, and running MySQL (however, I understand that BE writes to XML)
Please help with this.
