First Install problems

Aug 7, 2011 at 10:11 PM

I've installed BE 2.5 and made the app_data directory writable as instructed.  However when I try to find the default post to edit it, it is nowhere to be found.  Also I cannot change the password, as when I click on Users the list is empty.  Also when I try to create a new post and click "Save", nothing happens:  no error, no feedback; no post.

Trevor ... I think we are having the same problem.

If you have found a solution would you mind posting it ... thanks.

I did get this resolved.  Somehow the web.config file gets messed up.  You can see a thread about this here:


I don't remember the exact lines to fix, but I think I did find a post about which lines exactly somewhere on the web, but I can't find it right now.  Perhaps you can just reinstall or compare your web.config file to a standard web.config.


If I remember the exact change, I will post it.


Good luck!

Thanks for the reply.

Unfortunately... tried that.

Uploaded the original web.config  and restared the app pool ... waited to no avail. 

Seems like it could have been a javaScript issue so I explicity linked the js files in the admin.master file, again to no avail.

One thing I am wondering is if the hosting co. allowed write to asp and iis, of course figuring that is a slow process.

Thanks again for the help.
