Wonder if anyone can help me?
Stuck in the middle between developer and hosting company!
Trying to add blog to .net 4.0 site
I have uploaded the blog to the site, and they do have to convert the /Blog folder to an application. Please tell them to do so, otherwise it will not work. Once this is done, let me look at it again to see if I fixed all design problems.
Sorry, I don’t know what they mean. Your whole website is the application. Just because it is in a different folder shouldn’t matter. It is still part of your website.
There is an ASP.NET error message coming up which is hiding the true error message. If they follow the instructions in the error
message to disable custom errors in the web.config then you should see the real error.
Tell the hosting company that the "real error" is that the Blog folder needs to be converted to an application. Right click on the Blog folder in IIS and select "Convert to Application". That's it. It is a separate app than ours and won't
work as part of ours.
That option doesn’t appear on the server and may not be supported in IIS6 which that server is running, although we have never seen a .NET site that couldn’t run on IIS6.
Reading the error message suggests that moving the BlogEngine parts to the main web.config may resolve the issue and I would say to try that first.
Any help on this would be very much appreciated.
