This doesn't appear to be a SQL problem, but a problem with the JS and CSS handlers with IIS7.

Do you have a <system.webServer> section in your web.config file?  If so, try replacing the <system.webServer> section with the one I posted here.  If you don't already have this section, then add that <system.webServer> section into your web.config file.  It would go towards the bottom of the web.config file, right before the closing </configuration> tag.

There shouldn't be any problems with the <system.webServer> section at GoDaddy.  Others here are also on GoDaddy and aren't having security issues (this person for example).

In case you had a copy-and-paste mistake, below is the Web.config file that comes with BE 1.5 RC1 -- and it includes the modified <system.webServer> section.  Try using the one below.

EDIT:  The DbBlogProvider is the default provider in the Web.config below.

Oops, sorry, you did say you are using SQL 2005.  If you post your Web.config file here, I (or someone else) can take a look at it.  Just remove any DB connection passwords and other sensitive info.
Apr 7, 2009 at 11:17 PM
I tried to copy web config over here , but i could not because the page fail...... I am using sql server 2005.... send me a sample web config that handle this issue

Thanks a lot
Apr 7, 2009 at 11:23 PM
I'm not sure if you're using SQL Server 2005 for just blog posts (i.e. the BlogProvider), or if you're also using SQL Server 2005 for Users and Roles.  It would be easiest if you could paste your web.config file here (minus any passwords).  Then I can make adjustments to what you already have.
Apr 7, 2009 at 11:48 PM
Really i tried to copy and paste my web config but i got error on this page....
I am using sql server 2005 for just blog posts without Users and Roles.............I hope u can help me coz I stick over there......
Apr 7, 2009 at 11:56 PM
I edited the Web.config file I posted a few messages above.  The only change I made was changing the "defaultProvider" for the <blogProvider> element to 'DbBlogProvider'.

So try using that same Web.config file I posted above.  You'll need to change the "BlogEngine" connection string for your DB.
Apr 8, 2009 at 12:19 AM
I ma still getting this error

500 - Internal server error.

There is a problem with the resource you are looking for, and it cannot be displayed.

Thanks for ur help

Apr 8, 2009 at 12:28 AM
Earlier today, your blog was working ... except for the styles weren't showing up correctly.  The only change you've made since this morning has been to the Web.config file, right?  Can you PM me your original Web.config file from this morning?  Either that or post it here?
Apr 9, 2009 at 2:49 PM
Dear Ben

I have saved your time and mine too and change my IIS version to 6 and avoid all problem happens by IIS 7.....
Now the blog is published well and life is happy.......................
But I face a small problem is: I can not login to admin panel. I am using SQL Server 2005 as  Data provider & I checked Users table and there is a user there ....

I suspect that my login connection do not look in SQL DB can I check.

By the way I tried to copy and paste my web.config here but the page fire an error. If poosible advise ur email to send the web config file to you to take a look.

Apr 9, 2009 at 6:37 PM
I just PM'd you.  You should get an email.  If you have anything to send me, you can reply to the email and the reply will be sent to my email address.

For the login issue, I would first double check the Web.config file to make sure BE is using the be_Users table in the DB.  There's a <membership> tag in the Web.config file.  You would want to verify the "defaultProvider".  If it's "XmlMembershipProvider, BE is using the users.xml file in the App_Data folder.  The tag would look like:

<membership defaultProvider="XmlMembershipProvider">

But if the defaultProvider is DbMembershipProvider, like below, then BE is using the be_Users table in the DB.

<membership defaultProvider="DbMembershipProvider">

If you're using the XmlMembershipProvider, clear out the <password> value in the users.xml file so it looks like:


If you're using the DbMembershipProvider, clear out the Password column in the be_Users table so the column contains an empty string.  Basically, something like:

UPDATE be_Users SET [Password] = ''

After making these changes, you'll want to re-start BE since it will probably have the old data cached in memory.  You can re-start BE by making a small change to the web.config file (add a space, for example) or just re-uploading the same web.config file.

After re-starting BE, you should be able to login using the existing User account you have, and for the password, enter "admin".  The "admin" password is the default password if the user doesn't yet have a password.

Thanks Ben

Thanks my friend
