IIS7 support on GoDaddy.com

May 20, 2008 at 4:39 PM
I really want to use Blogengine.NET on my hosted website (GoDaddy.com).  There seems to be lots of posts of people having trouble with this, but few with a resolution.

GoDaddy isn't sure if it works and has offered to let me switch my site over to Linux and use one of the available blogengines they know work.  I really would like to stay on a Windows platform.

I get an HTTP 500 Internal Server Error now.  I suspect it may be a permissions issue but have not figured out how to correct it.

Does anyone have a working instance of BlogEngine.NET 1.3 running on IIS7 on a hosted shared webserver?

This is a godaddy account.

Apparently my timing was just a little off.  Last week, GoDaddy said it didn't work and when I called them back yesterday they said it did.  I tried using their (GoDaddy's) automated setup and it worked perfectly.

All systems go.
