I have a fresh installation of blogengine. I'm not a professional programmer, but I've followed the documentation precisely.
I'm with a shared hosting company. My website is hosted on a Windows 2012 server w/ IIS8. But I'm using IIS7 Manager.
They claim: "Your IIS and aspnet users are granted full set of permissions on your site root and all subsequent directories by default. Your and your web applications should be able to write to any directory. The permissions of those
users cannot be altered, and that's why they are not listed in permissions manager. Permission manager is for additional users that you create in User/Quota Manager only."
I can go to the blog's home page and login using the default admin login. I
can go to my dashboard and edit categories, create new categories, etc. ... When I attempt to create a new post, I can insert images.
But I cannot write new posts, or create new users. When I try to create a new post, for instance, clicking the "Save post" button just doesn't do anything; the page remains stagnant. Likewise, when
I go to the users section in the admin, I can fill out the "create new user" form, but when I click "Save", it doesn't actually create a new user, and it goes back to the users page.
Does anybody have any suggestions as to what I might be doing incorrectly? Any guidance would be greatly appreciated!
