This project is read-only.

Newer version of BE doesn't work...

For some time, I have run an older version of BlogEngine without any issues:



But with the latest 1.6.1 version, I get the following error:



Access to the path 'D:\vhosts\[domain name]\subdomains\blog\httpdocs\App_Data\datastore\extensions\AkismetFilter.xml' is denied.'

(I have control over my server through an admin panel)   Not sure what to do next?

Thanks in advance.

I see this error a lot. For some reason when moving or updating the App_Data folder between my local machine and our host the security gets set to read only for App_Data.  Check to make sure this folder is set to read/write on your host. So far for us it's always the same AkismetFilter.xml error message showing up that let's me know that's what the problem is.

Thanks for that, I logged in and changed the permissions which seems to have fixed that error, but now I get:

Parser Error Message: Unknown server tag 'blog:PostCalendar'.

Source Error: 

Line 5:    <div id="divError" runat="Server" />
Line 6:    <uc1:PostList ID="PostList1" runat="server" />
Line 7:    <blog:PostCalendar runat="server" ID="calendar" 
Line 8:      EnableViewState="false"
Line 9:      ShowPostTitles="true"

The error right now on the "blog" site is the original "access to the path ... is denied" message from your original post.  Maybe you've been tweaking it ...

That looks like a classic case of Write permissions not being set on the App_Data folder.
