Hi,

My clients blog was working for over a year and just suddenly am now getting ...

Server Application Unavailable...

The blog is using XML for storage and seems to have write permissions intact on App Data folder...

Also tried recycle pools, restart the IIS 6.

Restarted the server also...

Edited the webconfig and re-ftp'd

I am stuck on what to try next??

Does the XML storage model just break from a bad posting or something??

Any idea how I might resolve this...??

Thanks

Bad post unlikely to throw server app unavailable, usually it indicates system problem like installing new software on the server that messes up existing apps. Here is an example. Most likely IIS running your app was updated, like new .net version installed or app pull reconfigured. You can try to upload plain "hello world" app with same .net version to see if it will work.
