First I should say that I am not much of a web developer...
At any rate I had a blog with BlogEngine 1.4.1
I decided to upgrade to the latest version from Mercurial (from 4 November 2010).
I did run the Sql scripts to update my SqlServer from 1.4 => 1.4.5 => 1.5 => 1.6 => 2.0
I deleted all files and folder except App_Data/files
I uploaded a precompiled version (with no update support), and tweaked the web config to use the Sql Web.config with the right connection string
The web site started, looked as it did before (with a few exception) and I was able to login with admin / admin
I tried to create a user and got this error (custom error off)
Server Error in '/codeblog/admin' Application.

Also loading the first page is so slow..... I thought that using SqlServer (instead of VistaDB) and precompiled my blog will have speed up things, but instead they slow down quite a bit! Any clues as to why?
Strangely enough I can access the user administration screen without trouble when I run it locally!
