Can't find admin/admin.aspx - 404 error?

Dec 17, 2009 at 8:12 PM

Hey I'm new to BlogEngine. I'm trying to install and it seems like everything works. I'm able to go to the blog (rebelstudent.com/blog). However, I tried logging in with admin & admin as the username and password and it redirected me to admin/admin.aspx which doesn't exist.

Thanks for any help.

Probably BE is inheriting settings from the parent application (in the root folder).

If you have a web.config file in the root folder, you can wrap the existing <system.web> and <system.webServer> sections within the following <location> tag:

<location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false">
         <system.web>
                          ..............   Existing Content ................
         </system.web>
</location>

<location path="." inheritInChildApplications="false">
         <system.webServer>
                          ..............   Existing Content ................
         </system.webServer>
</location>

You might not have a <system.webServer> section in the parent folder's web.config file.  If not, no problem.

These <location> tags would go in the PARENT folder's web.config file.  It tells ASP.NET to not propagate settings to the child applications.
