Settings in App_Data not updating

Jan 3, 2012 at 3:53 PM

I have installed 2.5 (msdeploy) on shared hosting servers in a subdomain (e.g. at (hosting co). The App_Data directory has write permissions set for the site and Network Service (uses WebSitePanel as Control Panel). I am able to modify the information in setting.xml manually (through the control panel editor), however the admin functions do not write to the tables. Also the updated theme would not display correctly.

I replaced the web.config from the release with the one from the source and it fixed all issues I was experiencing.
